Midlothian schools celebrate the bard

Waiting for Video...

Schools across Midlothian recently celebrated Burns Day with poetry, song, and, of course, haggis, neeps and tatties!

The pupils of Lawfield Primary School celebrated all things Burns with a Scottish assembly on Friday January 24, the day before the bard’s birthday.

Teacher Linda Gillespie revealed more about what pupils at the Mayfield school got up to celebrate Robert Burns.

She said: “From the infant classes to the upper school, every class participated.

“They sang Scottish songs including, the Three Craws, Katie Beardie, the Red Yo Yo, the Skyscraper Wean, Call It Alba and Highland Cathedral, and they recited Scottish poems ranging from Street Talk, The Hippopotamus and A Dug, to Tae A Moose.

“Everyone performed very well and an enjoyable time was had by all.”

A number of other primary schools across Midlothian celebrated the bard’s birthday with Burns songs and poems and Scots activities, including Mauricewood, Lasswade and St Luke’s.
