Enjoying a Sell Out Scottish Ceilidh

Enjoying a Sell Out Scottish Ceilidh

The Caledonian Corps held their first Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) since 2019 on Saturday 5 June.

It was a great opportunity for the community to gather and celebrate all the hard work and dedicated practice that the students and tutors have done throughout the year.  If you’ve never had the privilege of attending the Ceilidh, it is always a fun packed evening of music, dance, some games and even a disco towards the end. A great opportunity to sample a little Scottish culture right here in Adelaide.

We are proud to report the Ceilidh was an absolute success again this year with tickets selling out well in advance. For many students, this was their first experience of performing to a booked-out Fisher Chapel. What really makes the Ceilidh and the Caledonian Corps unique, is that we showcase the full range of talents and abilities from students as young as Reception, all the way through to Year 12. We were once again joined by a dedicated group of Old Collegians who returned to expertly supplement and enrich our group dynamic.

Highlights of the night included community favourites such as The Gael, Highland Cathedral and Steam Train to Mallaig. The Drum Corps attempted to steal the show with their dazzling display from their light sticks, but undoubtedly the star of the event was The Caterpillar Dance performed by the beginner dancers from Mitcham Campus. 

Our most popular community dance was our disco section, where Dr Newton and a few other teachers were spotted joining a packed dance floor for classic dances such as the Nutbush, YMCA and Macarena. 

The Ceilidh was a fantastic event, but it doesn’t happen automatically. It would not be possible without the help of the many volunteers who helped organise and run the event and the dedicated clean-up crew who came back to pack up on Sunday morning. Thank you to everyone who assisted in any way.

If this sounds like your kind of evening, be sure to book your tickets early and join us again in 2022 for the next instalment of the Scotch College Caledonian Ceilidh.

The pipe band are always looking for new members. Students can start learning pipes from as young as Year 5 and drums from Year 6. Dance students can start at any age, but class numbers are limited. Any students interested in joining the Caledonian Corps should contact Mr Graham via email at egraham@scotch.sa.edu.au .
