Primary 6 showcase their own version of the Edinburgh Tattoo

Creating their very own RGC ‘Nod’ to the Edinburgh Tattoo, Primary 6 pupils led the music choice and worked hard in their Drama lessons this term to create dynamic movement and dance performances. 

The audience were taken on a wonderful tour of Scotland by the pupils, showcasing Scottish comedy sketches, live musical performances and highland dancing. 

Primary 6 pupil Alexander shared: “We have enjoyed working together to create our RGC tattoo which showcases some of our learning in Music and Drama. The programme is packed with surprises and we were really excited to share this with our parents.”

Mrs Rose said: “We have tried to emulate the Castle's Esplanade and are performing 'in the round' - a first for our Junior School and an exciting new concept for our invited P6 parent audience! The children have really risen to a demanding challenge with this concept and have made Scotland proud!" and Mrs Constable added 'we have included lots of details which tie our event to the traditions that are held so dearly by many." 

Head of Junior School, Mrs Webb summarised: “St Andrew’s Day is celebrated across the world with Scots celebrating our patron Saint.  Our Primary 6 pupils have enjoyed learning about Scottish culture and traditions through their work in the classrooms and with their specialist teachers in Music and drama. The evening was very entertaining with a very modern twist with some favourite songs! 

“Tradition is important in our daily life at Robert Gordon’s College, but we also look forward with lots of excitement and enthusiasm.  All our children were fantastic and a credit to the school, their families and themselves.”
