We started last week with Special Edition Storytellings for K3, K4 and K5 children where the teachers told the Story of the Scottish Immigrants that came to our country and then started our school 182 years ago. 

Each class celebrated in different ways, some baked cakes, decorated our school badge, others “flew” to Scotland where they got to know a little bit more about its culture, some tie dyed T-shirts with our school colours.

On September 1st we had an assembly where many kindergarten families participated. We had two special guests, Felicitas, a Y9 student who taught the children some basic Scottish Dancing steps, and Mr Oski, Primary music teacher, who played the bagpipes and told the children a bit about the instrument and his clothing. We then all sang together our School Song.  

It was a very moving assembly, where we were able to feel close in spite of the distance and show that even though we are not at the kindergarten it is the community that makes St. Andrew’s come alive. 

The  families also took part in our celebration. They shared with us the different  ways of honouring  the school´s spirit and the ways they celebrated  this special day for all of us.
