It was a celebration of Robert Burns on 25th January at Port Ellen Primary School. Children had spent weeks learning their poems to recite to the eminent judges on the day, and we couldn’t wait to see who won. We stopped early for lunch, which included the traditional Haggis, neeps and tatties. Mrs Carmichael said the traditional Burns lines over the haggis before it was served.
After lunch we held a ceilidh with parents attending for a dance and a song. Aileas entertained us on the fiddle, and the Highland Dancers were amazingly springy as they danced. The children have all been learning dancing, and it was great to see them dancing with their parents and friends to the Gay Gordans and Canadian Barn dance. The winners of the poetry competition were announced and were Murray in P1,Bronagh in P2, Abbie in P3, Maisie in P4, Ellen in P5, Aileas in P6 and Eilidh in p7. All in all a fantastic celebration of Scottish Culture.
