Burns Celebration

30 January 2015

Today we celebrated the life and poetry of Robert Burns (1759–1796), a famous Scottish poet. Usually a Burns Supper is held near his birthday on 25 January but we celebrated at school today with a special assembly in the afternoon.

Mr David Robinson started the Celebration with the awards for the Robert Burns Quiz and then taught the children some Scottish language. Principal Mr Brian Cooklin along with other Scottish staff all dressed in Scottish attire, entered the hall with the bagpipes being played in the background. The children learnt about the Scottish kilt, Glasgow, the Loch Ness and listened to several poem recitals from other pupils. Later, some children had a chance to taste a haggis (a traditional Scottish savoury dish). The girls from the Highland Dancing ECA also performed two dances in their kilts and the celebration concluded with the singing of Auld Lang Syne. What a fitting ending to the week!
