Another great Burns Supper

On Tuesday 27th January 2015, Leswalt Primary held its sixth annual Burns Supper.
The whole school sat down together to enjoy this tradition. Merryn Walker, P7, was a very able and organised chairperson who ensured the proceedings ran smoothly.
Alistair Brown, said the ‘Selkirk Grace’ before the haggis was piped in. Gregor Reid, P1, proudly carried the haggis into the company.  The haggis was presented to Aiyanna Wilson, P7, who confidently addressed it with great gusto. 
Mr Douglas McClure educated and entertained the company about the life of Robert Burns, in reciting “Tam O Shanter” word perfect – much to the delight of Primary 1-4 who had been learning all about this poem in class.
Recitations were also delivered from pupils in primary 1 to primary 7.  
Finlay Keenan, proposed an amusing toast to the lassies before Rhona Baillie in p7 gave him an appropriate reply.
Millie Renwick in Primary 7 provided an articulate and amusing toast, to Leswalt School
The Burns Supper concluded with Freya Bathgate in p7 giving an appreciative vote of thanks.
The company sang ‘Auld Lang Syne’ at the end of a highly successful and entertaining Burns Supper at Leswalt Primary.
