Sandbank Primary – Scottish Celebration Afternoon

The upper school classes at Sandbank Primary treated guests to an afternoon of Scottish celebrations last week. The Gaelic P 4-7, P5 and P6/7 classes joined forces to wow the audience with an array of performances, including bag pipes, fiddle, drums, piano, chanter, poetry recitals and highland dancing.
Following tradition, the haggis was piped in by Primary 7 pipers Brooke and Archie, followed by a recitation of Burns’ Selkirk Grace. Guests were then treated to an abundance of talent from the pupils who had worked very hard to perfect their acts. One highlight of the afternoon was a rendition of the Gaelic song ‘Seallaibh Curaigh Eoghainn’ by mainstream and Gaelic children, and a trio of tunes from our pipers with Tom accompanying on the drums.

All children showcased their talents fantastically and everyone had a very enjoyable time. Guests were also treated to some homemade Cranachan and shortbread to top their afternoon off nicely.
