Cullivoe Jarl Squad at Burravoe School


DSCF8199Today the Jarl Squad(Up Helly Aa Vikings) came to our school. We waited in the far room for five minutes until the photographer and the band came in. The band played for a few minutes and the the Jarl(the leader of the squad) came in. They went around the circle twice and then they sung “For Grand Old Viking Centuries” and then the Jarl’s song which they change most years.

Then the pass along their Helmets, Axes and Shields and there is a lot of photos taken of us. I tried on the full equipment the shield, the helmet and the axe. Very quickly after all the trying on we got Cream eggs and a joint photo. Then the squad had to go to their bus to travel to the next place.

Two of the band members we slower out then the other two. The last two out sung and played The Bear Necessities all the way in to the bus. We waved as the bus pulled away. It was really fun having the Jarl Squad at our school. I all ready can’t wait for next year.
