Ealain Chruthachail | Expressive Arts

Bun sgoil Ghaidhlig Phort Righ Portree Gaelic school

Our expressive arts programme encompasses a range of activities and experiences through art, music, movement and drama.

Art and Design - pupils are taught a variety of different skills and techniques through drawing, painting, modelling, printing and collage as well as learning more about artists past and present.

Music – all pupils participate in a wide range of musical activities including singing, musicmaking, listening to music and formal instrumental work. Instruction is available, at certain stages, for chanter and fiddle. All children in P4 onwards learn to play the tin whistle. Various classes participate in the Highland Youth Music Initiative and Kodaly Music Sessions. We encourage our pupils to participate in the Local Mòd, Fèis and Colonel Jock Competition. We work closely with Fèisean nan Gàidheal.

Drama - pupils in all classes are given the opportunity to develop their skills in improvisation, role play, and mime. Pupils take part in shows throughout the year and in the local Mòd.
