Easter 2015 PDF Print E-mail

It might be nearly Christmas, but it's Easter that's on our minds at Gaitherin HQ.

We hope to have registration for P4-7 open online before Christmas, so brace yourself!  The venue requests have been submitted, but we won't know where we can get for a wee while.  We're trying!

We will also be accepting applications for S1-6 participants who are interested in being shadow youth workers or tutors.  Please consider this carefully as not everyone who applies will be able to help as numbers have been increasing each year.

I hope you enjoy all of the festivities and keep an eye on the website for more news.

What a Gaitherin that was!  119 participants, 28 shadow tutors and youth workers, 11 tutors, 10 youth workers, a new chef and more volunteers than you could shake a stick at! (more always welcome by the way.)


Everyone seemed to have a great time and the concert was of an incredible standard!  What a talented bunch!


Highlights of the week include:

group work sessions springing up in the canteen at lunch times

harmonies on the fiddle

Dr Who in drama

the shadow tutors and Gaitherin Band's very successful trip to Pittodrie in collaboration with the Aberdeen FC in the Community team (@AFC in the Community)

hot food

the tutors climbing Bennachie

Gregor's Batman onesie



ANGUS THE BULL visiting!

In all the excitement, I forgot to read a message out which I received from Charlie and Craig Reid (The Proclaimers!!) before the Gaitherin.  They wrote:

"Our very best wishes to all the children and everyone involved in the Easter Gaitherin.  We hope you all have a highly creative and most enjoyable time."

How cool is that?
