Shortlees Primary School and Sorn Primary School pupils took part in the national Glow meet from the National Archives of Scotland – ‘The Life of Robert Burns: A New Discovery?’ Hundreds of pupils from schools throughout Scotland took part in this event, which included discussions with National Archives staff about the discovery of a letter from Burns’ final days.

The Shortlees and Sorn pupils taking part in the Glow meet thoroughly enjoyed the event and are keen to take part in more national events like this one. As one of the participants said: “We were all amazed by the Glow Meet. The session brought Glow to life!”
