Burravoe Primary School

Life In Burravoe


Burravoe is a small village; it has got a hall, a primary school, a church and a small community shop. We have great views all around Burravoe. Burravoe is very quiet and at night if you live in a city, it would be loud and noisy but if you live in Burravoe then it is quite quiet.

The Burravoe Hall is where we have Youth Club on a Wednesday; we have parties like Christmas Parties, a Halloween party and a Birthday Party.

This is Burravoe School; this is where I go to school with 11 others. Our head teacher is called Ms Breyley , Our  teaching assistant is called  Jennifer Odie , our supervisor is Suzanne Pugh (My Mum) and our cook is called Elsie  Johnson.

We have a community shop, where you can by milk, bread, eggs, cheese, chocolate and lots more. It is near the school so if we run out of food we could pop down to get some food. This Mary Jane is a volunteer who works at the shop.

This is St Colmans church; we have our Christmas Concerts in there. The church is over the road from the school.

In Ulsta there is a ferry and a shop. Ulsta is about eight kilometers from Burravoe School.

This is the Ulsta ferry; It goes from Ulsta – Toft. It takes 20 minutes on the ferry. There are two ferries, there is an upstairs for you to go up and sit down and have a drink of water.

When you get off the ferry at Ulsta you can see the Ulsta shop. You can also get petrol from the Ulsta shop.

  2. Looks like life in the Islands is a lot different than on the mainland, thanks for bringing it to life for me, next time I ‘nip to the shops’ I’ll think of life in Burravoe. Great stuff, really loved this article, and the photos gave me an insight into life on Yell.
