Burn's Night celebrations

Strachur Primary celebrated Robert Burns' birthday in style on Monday - with singing, dancing, poetry, music and (of course) haggis!


Primary 1-2 recited the poem 'My Wee Rid Motor' and P6-7 composed their own versions of 'Address to a Haggis'. P3-4-5 performed a play based on 'To A Mouse' which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. Sophie S played 'Ye Banks and Braes' on her fiddle and we had four pupils play 'Scots Wha Hae' on the chanter to bring in the haggis - Annie, Betty, Kirsty, Sophie S and Tommi.


Damien said the 'Selkirk Grace' and addressed our haggis, along with Isaac, Tommi and Kyle. P6-7 also demonstrated the country dancing they have been learning with Mrs Shipley. Annie and Betty were our comperes for the event and kept things running smoothly, with Niamh doing the vote of thanks. We were delighted to have Rev. McKenzie there as a guest too. We had irn-bru as a special treat! Most of the children tried the haggis, prepared by our terrific catering ladies - Anne and June.


We enjoyed singing Auld Lang Syne together to finish off our special celebrations. Well done Mr Ferguson who accompanied us on the keyboard!
