Parent Council @the Gala

Posted by on Jun 18, 2012 in Latest News, Parent Council News

This year Hillhead Primary was involved in the Gibson Street Gala for the first time. The Parent Council was asked to organise activities for the Fuel Zone and Piazza for children in the under-7 age group and since the theme of the event this year was Knights and Princesses we decided to go for activities that had a medieval slant to them.

Gargoyles, princess hats and crowns, nosegays and capes were made by children visiting the school. There was also storytelling by Fergus McNicol and pre-school drama classes by Lisa from Pyjama Drama.

Joining in the fun were P2 and P3 pupils from Fionnuala’s after school drama club, Hillhead Dramatime who did a performance of comedy sketches at the school. We were fortunate enough to have the event during one of the few days of good weather this month which meant that the Gala was well attended by families who enjoyed the activities we put on for them.

A big thank you to all those staff and volunteers who made the day a great success. A special congratulations to the pupils from Miss Miller’s group who appeared on the Community Stage and Fionnuala’s group for their great performances.
