To honour the 260th birthday of Scotland’s national bard, pupils in L5 donned ‘a touch of tartan’ and took part in a range of activities in celebration of his life and works.

As well as creating their own cartoon strips of ‘Tam O’Shanter’, discovering more about Robert Burns’ life and learning the meaning of traditional Scottish words, the youngsters took part in a high-spirited ceilidh at Mayfield.

They then rounded things off in traditional fashion with a Burns Supper, in which the haggis was piped in by Mitchell Clark, the ‘Address to a Haggis’ was performed by a group of enthusiastic pupils, and the ‘Selkirk Grace’ was given by Charlotte Steuart-Fothringham.

Not to be outdone, Senior Years pupils will be holding their own Burns Night celebration next Friday.
