Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

A big Happy Birthday tae Rabbie fae Kirkcolm


Even Rabbie himself would be proud of the effort the lads and lassies went to today with their poem recitals, their handwriting and all of their braw artwork – Mrs Mary Milroy was our judge and she had the extremely difficult job of choosing the winners (these will be announced at tomorrow afternoon’s presentation)
Today we had an early lunch to allow us to cram in all that we did during our Burns supper. Jack, our master of ceremonies welcomed everyin to the burns supper and explained the running order. Shortly after the bagpipes sounded and Packer and Alfie carried in the haggis and Steven recited Address to the Haggis for us, which was affa guid!!🍴
Michelle dished up the haggis, neeps and tatties and we got stuck in (the haggis got mixed reviews)! This was followed by shortbread and ice-cream and butterscotch sauce (the reviews for this were more positive). Afterwards we heard a few poem recitals: 
P1 – Orla
P2 – Sally
P3 – Joey
P4 – Rebecca 
P5 – Lyle 
P6 – Phoebe 
Both classes performed their Scots songs they have been learning in class, which parents will enjoy tomorrow afternoon!
Next up it was time for the Toast to the Lassies, delivered by Jack, Danny and Alfie. These boys were quick to point out how long the girls were at getting ready for P.E. and remarked on all of the “unnecessary stuff” they keep in their school bags, comparing it to the shelves of SuperDrug 💄They did, eventually, admit that they do actually like the girls and the school would not be the same without them..
The girls were not so quick to forget these harsh but somewhat true comments in their Toast to the Lads – reminding them that their football abilities did not compare to the premier league they’re not Ronaldo, Messi or Beckham but did deep down like them really.. 
Archie gave the vote of the thanks to Michelle for the lovely food, the P7s for organising such a great Burns supper and Mrs McHarg for all of her help before we concluded our celebrations with a good old sing of Auld Lang Syne! 🎤
