Ceilidh at Webster’s High School

Pupils at Webster’s High School rounded off their 2013 school year with an all-school ceilidh.

Three sessions of Scottish country dancing were held in the Webster’s Sports Centre to bring the school together to celebrate the end of term and the start of the Christmas holidays.

The pupils were put through their paces by staff from the P.E. department, whilst Mrs Karen Matthew, Prince’s Trust teacher, ran a non-alcoholic juice bar with the help of the Prince’s Trust pupils and Fidelma O’Dowd Cook of Angus Council’s community learning and development.

The emphasis on the day was encouraging pupils to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Pupils in first and second year took to the floor for the first session in the morning, followed by those in third and fourth year. Finally, in the afternoon, senior pupils in fifth and sixth year joined in the fun.

They were talked through the dances by P.E. teacher Craig Laing who said the pupils had learned a number of dances for the annual ceilidh whilst the Prince’s Trust pupils (pictured above) manned the juice bar throughout the day.
