November

 29th – A team from GXSDC joined Eton Wick First School to celebrate St Andrew’s Day a day early. The Fisherman’s Reel drew gasps of surprise from the children as we whizzed round that first circle.  Then they were mesmerised by Chris’ talk on all things kilt-related.  St Andrew’s Fair followed, and the whole school was  soon clapping along to Staircase in Styria.

Rose then marshalled the Year 4 children to join us in Cumberland Reel, Flying Scotsman and Circassian Circle.  Everyone participated  and seemed to have a very jolly time. The afternoon ended with tea and home -made shortbread for the dancers. The teacher said the whole event had far surpassed her expectations!  Lets hope we’ve sowed the seeds for the dancers of the future.  Thank you, everyone.
