As you know we have been working very hard on our Scots and Burns poems. This year there is a slight change to our arrangements. We are having a P1-3 Assembly on Thursday 7th February where our winners will recite their poems to the infant department and a panel of judges from the Parent Council. Each of our winners will receive a certificate and the lucky winner from P1- 3 will be awarded a trophy to hold for a year.
The upper school will have a similar event with 3 judges from the Burns Federation. There will be 2 trophies, one for the overall winner from P4&5 and one from P6&7 and of course, certificates for all class winners. We will also be entertained with singing and dancing. We are very lucky to have such talented children.
The following Wednesday at school assemblies the infant winner will recite their winning poem to the upper school assembly and vice versa.
We would invite the children to wear something tartan on Thursday 7th, if they have it, to help us celebrate Burns Day. This could be a tie, a hairband, a blouse, a skirt, anything tartan. It is not a non-uniform day but if you have the full regalia we would love to see it!
We are all looking forward to the performances and pictures will be posted on the school blog next week.
Thank you once again for your support.
