It’s been a wee while since I’ve been able to share with everyone some of the super things our pupils are involved with outside the classroom. Whether this is a before or after school club activity or an activity which the children participate in away from school altogether we love to hear what they’ve been up to.
After not having any additions to our Wider Achievement Board for sometime, two young ladies came to share their achievements with me, last week.
Lady number one came with three trophies and two medals. She doesn’t put all her eggs in one basket. Her trophies are for freestyle dance. She is a member of the Claire Smith Dance Group and loves dancing and making new friends. She’s, clearly, very successful as the trophies show.
Her two medals are from the Riverbank Running Club for which she has been an active participant. One of her medals was for participating in a fun run for The Riverbank Running Club.
We have a talented young lady. I hope she keeps up her interest in these two hobbies and we wish her further success in the future.
Young Lady number two, through a lot of perseverance and hard work, at her
ballet class, was able to perform with the Moscow State Ballet in a production of Swan Lake. She is a member of The Aberdeen Academy of Performing Arts where she is learning jazz, tap and ballet.
The Moscow State Ballet required a local dance group to provide the extra swans required and our pupil was chosen as one of those swans or would it be a cygnet.
She loves her dancing and particularly learning new dances!
For one so young, to have had such a fantastic opportunity and experience certainly shows how well she is progressing and how seriously she takes her dance. Well done young lady and, please, keep working hard at your dancing!
