The children must choose four subjects/instruments from a timetable to focus on for the three days, and select one of these as their first choice. The children will get a session in each of these four choices daily, and will get an additional session each day in their first choice subject. Their day will also include Gaelic language and the learning of the fèis song. Children must bring a packed lunch, snacks will be provided. Musical instruments will be provided, but if your child has their own instrument, please let us know. Tin whistles can be purchased at the fèis.
