Christmas 1914

Thank you to everyone who came along to our Christmas Show on Friday 14th December. The school decided to base their Christmas performance this year on their World War 1 topic with the story being set on Raasay and in France in 1914. The night was dedicated to all those who lay down their lives for the freedom of future generations.

The story starts set in Umachan on the Isle of Raasay and follows the story of a local family and how the outbreak of war impacts on them and the lives of those around them. The Raasay story was specifically written for the children and used local place names. The songs were written and adapted especially for the play and the theme was of hope, love and peace and mankind’s ability to face fear and adversity to safeguard these three things for future generations.

Wilma Duncan Head Teacher said “We are all so proud of our pupils and what they achieved on the night. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house and they performed to a packed audience and rave reviews! For a school of only 8 pupils, some of whom are very young, the level of skill, ability and dedication shown by them all was incredible but most pleasing of all was to see the enjoyment and ownership they had of the story.

Thanks to all parents, staff, community members and community groups for supporting the production and ensuring a fantastic night of entertainment for all.”

Here are some photographs of the night for you to enjoy – thank you to David Carslaw for the photographs.
