The School Tartan
The Katharine Robinson School of Highland Dancing has operated in Canada's Capital for over 50 years! The Lady K Robinson 50 and Beyond Commemorative Tartan celebrates this milestone. The school and Ms. Robinson have always loved blue and red as school colours, and these represent Scotland and Canada respectively. Purple is also one of Ms. Robinson's favourite colours, while the black and double rows of white illustrate the joy and pride of dancing, triumphing over all obstacles. These are at the core of our school values, that students enjoy dance and take pride in their accomplishments.
