The Primary event will take place on Saturday 12th May 2018 with arrangements as noted above for the Secondary event.

School children, from Primary 4 upwards, working within the Scottish curriculum are eligible to take part in local and regional competitions with the finalists  from each area  going on to compete at the annual National Festival.

Entries should be submitted through your child's school.  If you are unsure as to whether your local school participates in our competitions, ask the teaching staff or contact me and I can liaise with your school on your behalf.
