– what have we been up to?

Burns celebrations at Kirkcolm Primary


Today , 25th January was the birthday of the bard.  And, all the pupils of Leswalt and Kirkcolm Primary schools came together to celebrate.  Pupils had been working hard at home  – writing out their poems, creating artwork and learning recitations.

We welcomed Mrs Mc Harg back into the building today to judge the efforts of all. 

Mrs Mc Harg had a very difficult job!  Just look some of the wonderful artwork.


Once the judging was complete, the children came together in the hall to enjoy the speeches and toasts as part of a Burn Supper.  All the speeches were shared between pupils from Leswalt  and Kirkcolm Primary school –

Chairperson – Lexi Greenhill

Carrying in the haggis – Miley Adams and Alfie Baker

Addressing the Haggis – Aidan Adams and Luke Butler

Toast to Lassies – Oliver Brown and George Keith

Reply to Lads – Olivia Turtle and Emma Drummond

Toast to the school – Breagh Kirkpatrick and Malcolm Mc Gregor

Vote of Thanks – Murray Williams

Tylor Alexander then said the Selkirk Grace before all enjoyed tucking into their lunch –

After a play outside all pupils went back to their seats in the dinner hall to hear the results of the judging.  As well as celebrating all the wonderful artwork, handwriting and poetry recitations we also enjoyed some singing, with all classes performing for each other.


It was a truly wonderful day with lots of talent on display and all pupils achieving in a whole range of activities. 

Watch this space for the full results being uploaded soon!
