Fern­hill pupils bring Burns po­etry to life

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Pri­mary and nurs­ery chil­dren at Fern­hill School donned their tar­tan to cel­e­brate the Auld Bard, Rab­bie Burns re­cently.

The day kicked off with ceilidh dance in the hall, fol­lowed by a dis­play of Scot­tish tal­ent and was rounded off with a feast of tra­di­tional Scot­tish fayre, in­clud­ing Scot­tish wa­ter, Irn Bru and short­bread.

A great time was had by all and the show­case of Burns po­etry and Scot­tish songs was out­stand­ing.

Teacher Mrs Gal­lacher said: “To see the chil­dren re­cite old Scot­tish po­ems and songs in full di­alect was fan­tas­tic and gave us a won­der­ful plat­form on which to look at our auld Scots his­tory and lan­guage. Pri­mary seven wrote, pro­duced and en­acted their own ver­sion of the life and works of Robert Burns which was out­stand­ing and re­ally brought life and true mean­ing to the cel­e­bra­tion.”
