This is show week for the seniors at Berwickshire High School which has a brilliant music department. Well worth coming to see. Their productions would grace a professional stage.

Just got home from seeing the Berwickshire High School's production of the Musical 9-5. Absolutely brilliant ensemble cast. The confidence and talent of these youngsters is wonderful to see. Just two nights left to catch it. Last night is Saturday.

The Berwickshire High School really has an excellent music department. The current production is the seniors' show S4-6, most of the leads actually being S5 students who have just finished their prelims (mock exams). Before Christmas the lower school (S1-3) staged Frozen which was also very good. The last full school show (last June) saw 70 kids on stage, over 10% of the school population, with many more running backstage and tech.

There is lots of good evidence that music in schools helps improve attainment across the board. As a parent of kids going through the high school over the last 11 years, I have seen this happening with the Berwickshire. The development of the music department has gone hand in hand with rising standards across the school generally. I'm so glad that we moved to Scotland from Yorkshire 11 years ago. Our kids are getting a much better education.

Duns (population under 3000) is remarkable. I've just got home from a planning meeting for Duns Playfest (8 day festival of new theatre), daughter just finished dress rehearsal for 9-5 The Musical, Wednesday Duns Players start rehearsal for a Murder Mystery, Thursday Duns Operatic are rehearsing Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. All will be brilliant I'm sure.
