While exams are the main focus for senior pupils at Oban High School this month many S1-S3 pupils are busy preparing for their Summer Dance Show on Tuesday May 31.

Some of the cheer/gymnastic squad practicing lifts.

A short programme of 10 pieces will be performed between 7pm and 8pm in the Oban High School Atrium.

This will give the junior pupils a long awaited chance to perform in front of an audience and will give parents, extended family and members of the public the chance to visit the school after a long absence.

The evening programme will include S1 and S2 School of Dance groups, as well as S3 Elective dance students. A Highland Dancing choreography will be performed by the Highland dancers from the three year groups and a brand new cheer/gymnastics group will debut.

Speaking about the upcoming show PE teacher Denise Gemmell said: ‘We have all really missed putting on our annual dance show in the Corran Halls and while we will return with a big event next year for the whole school, we thought it would be great for the S1-3 year groups to show off all their excellent work to an audience.

‘Hosting in the school was also a good option, too, as it has been so long since we have invited parents, extended family and the public into the school for an event.

‘We really hope it will be well supported and would like to invite anyone who is interested in dance to come along to the High School on the evening of May 31.’

Many tickets have been sold already and can be bought in advance from Oban High School or at the door if available.

Tickets cost £5 for adults, £3 for concessions and a family ticket for two adults and two children costs £15. There are also free tickets available for all P7 pupils as an incentive to encourage pupils who will soon move up to High School to come into the school and to see what they could be part of next year.
