Primary 6 had a fantastic afternoon sharing their songs and poems with a group of invited guests before sharing a traditional meal of haggis, neeps and tatties.
It was a delight to receive an invite to the Burns’ Supper staged by our P5, 6 and 7 pupils. We knew we were in for something special when it stated that there would be ‘magic treats and ice cauld Irn Bru.’ With singing, dancing, poetry recitals and funny sketches it was a fantastic afternoon. The pupils were brilliant as they entertained guests from the community including Jameson Place, organisers from the Leith festival and even Mr Short managed to drop by too. We were waited on hand and foot as we enjoyed a traditional Burns’ supper with steaming hot haggis, tatties and neeps. It demonstrated to me just what a talented and passionate group of children we have here at Lorne. Also, the hard work and professionalism of the staff shone through. I’d like to say a very big THANK YOU to all involved. We will endeavour to make this an annual event.
The ladies and gents from Jamieson Place have kindly donated £50 to the school. It’s our intention to purchase a silver salver to serve our haggis on in coming years and to have it engraved to remind us of our strong links with them.
Well done to all the children who took part in our annual Scots Poetry Recital Competition. A winner from each class recited their chosen poem to the school at assembly today.
