MUSICAL PERFORMANCES FOR ALL YEAR GROUPS – TUESDAY 8 OCTOBER
On Tuesday 8 October we will be hosting musical performances in the Assembly Hall for all year groups across the school. These will be performed by Natasha Stewart, an upcoming Scottish solo artist who is embarking on a school tour across the UK with a message of Careers, Aspirations and Mental Health. Performing under the stage name “ThisisNamaste”, Natasha has already toured as a backing singer for Rita Ora, Ella Eyre and is now embarking on her own exciting solo journey. Furthermore, she will be supporting Little Mix on some of their tour dates later this year as well as releasing her debut album. Natasha is a University graduate who has had her own struggles with mental health so feels she is in the perfect position to be talking about careers, education & options after school as well as the subject of mental health.
The day will run as follows;
- P3 – All of S2 are expected to attend the performance in the Hall
- P4 – All of S3 are expected to attend the performance in the Hall
- P5 – All of S4/5/6 (those not at College/Volunteering or attending other schools for classes) are expected to attend the performance in the Hall
- P6 – All of S1 are expected to attend the performance in the Hall
Teachers should register pupils in their classrooms before escorting them down to the hall where they will be for the remainder of the lesson and performance.
