On Wednesday we arrived in Glasgow, after checking into our hostel we were allowed to have a few hours of shopping, looking around the Christmas Markets and sightseeing in the city; we then headed back to the hostel to get ready to go out for dinner and see the musical.
The musical production of The Little Shop of Horrors which was breath-taking; the cast were great and brought so much life to the stage. We all had an amazing day and it was a great experience because some of us had never seen a musical before.
On Thursday morning we went for breakfast which was lovely and set us up for the day ahead. After breakfast, we went on our coach to the Kelvingrove Museum & Art Gallery which was fascinating since there were so many sections about different Art and so many areas to look at. We really enjoyed the Expressive Arts trip because it was fun and very interesting, and we would love to go on one again.

This term both the Art & Music departments took a group of twenty-three students from S3-S6 on an Expressive Arts Trip to Glasgow.
The purpose of this cross-curricular project was to engage our young people in the creative arts by seeing the theatre production of Little Shop of Horrors, discovering the city of Glasgow, visiting the Christmas Markets and engaging in an Educational Tour around Kelvingrove Museum & Art Gallery. This trip was an exciting, engaging and truly inspiring experience for all students involved and staff.
I would like to take this time to thank the staff that assisted and accompanied me in the organisation of our Expressive Arts Trip Mr Ross Fairfield and Miss Shona McGibbon. More importantly I would like to thank our students who conducted themselves with a great deal of maturity and professionalism during this overnight stay representing Charleston Academy fantastically.
