SMUHA

Well – I don’t really know where to start!  What an absolutely brilliant day was had by all in Dunrossness Primary!

Thanks to John, Stevie Bruce, Duncan Kidson and Andrew Kemp for all their hard work over the winter to make our galley.  Thanks to Ness Engineering for sponsoring the galley and providing the materials.

We really appreciate members from Jarl Squads past coming to support our procession and thank the torch boys for providing us with the torches.

The Fire Brigade were on standby to keep us all safe – thanks to our local crew.

We had a brilliant performance from our P4 and P5/6 drumming groups – thanks Joy!  I really enjoyed dancing along!

Thanks Annalie Irvine for playing piano for us.

This year’s P7 Jarl Squad did a brilliant job on the day.  They were very well organised and looked fantastic.  Calum ‘Trunsherface’ Mackay was a fabulous Jarl and representative of the school.

All staff and bairns in the school embraced the build up and the events of the day.  SMUHA is a fantastic, inclusive community event and we love taking part each year.  I am sure the children in the local area will continue the festival for years to come.

Finally a huge THANK YOU to all the members of the school community for turning out to support us.  What a superb atmosphere!

3 Cheers for SMUHA – I can’t wait for next year!

  1. It was a brilliant day and the weather was great too! All the children looked fantastic with their helmets and torches during the procession!

    1. The reason we did the squad acts this way was because last year it was really hard to see or hear the bairns with everyone in the hall waiting for the Jarl Squad. I think we will keep it at the same time but friends and family would be welcome to stay on after the burning and join in. We wanted to see how it worked out but it all seemed to go well.
