Choral Shield Winners 2024 - Barclay House !

As Dalziel’s celebration of our 125th anniversary comes to a close, our seniors invited us to celebrate a highlight in our school’s calendar with another outstanding Choral Shield performance.

Staged for the first time at the beautiful Town House in Hamilton, seniors from our three houses presented two nights of song and dance to sold-out audiences from across our school community.

They were honoured, too, to offer a special matinee performance for some of our incoming Dalziellians who joined us from our feeder primary schools.

Firstly, Barclay took the cheering crowds down-under for an “I’m a Celebrity” inspired rumble in the jungle. With songs like “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” from The Lion King and Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor”, much of the crowd was kanga-rooting for Barclay from the first note.

Next, the cowboys and cowgirls of Colville got a little bit country as they strummed their guitars to jukebox classics including “Man, I Feel Like a Woman” and “Life is a Highway.” By the end of the night, the audience was [Dolly] Parton the Town House with a song on their lips.

And finally, our lot o’ Greig seniors were feeling lucky as they performed a set of songs based on the National Lottery. Drawing hits like “The Gambler” and “I Gotta Feeling”, things were bin-going well for Greig all night.

In the end, it was Barclay who proved to be the highest koala-ty as they were awarded the Choral Shield for the second year in a row.

With a special performance from the junior school cast of our upcoming production of “Shrek: The Musical”, our Choral Shield is a shining example of everything Dalziel stands for, building a culture of respect, inclusion and achievement in our pupils as they “aim for the highest”, together, in all that they do.
