strone-primary-burns-supper-4-jan-2017On Friday 27th January the Parent Council held a Burns supper in Kilmun Hall. It was a fantastic event that was well attended by family and friends from our local community.

strone-primary-burns-supper-3-jan-2017We had learnt a lot about Robert Burns in class. I found out he was a farmer and an excise man. He wasn’t popular when he was a taxman but when he wrote his poems people loved them.

I truly loved the songs we learnt and performed on the night.

His life was intriguing. He wrote about everything he saw in the world around him. His most famous poem was probably ‘Tam O’Shanter’. I loved the language he used in all his works.

My favourite part of the evening was “The marriage of Robin red breast and the Wren”. I played the robin. I was so nervous and I felt like I couldn’t breathe however, it went really well.

The whole evening was a great success and everyone enjoyed it.

I learned so much about Robert Burns. I will never forget this experience.
