A celebration of Scotland
Cathkin Primary recently celebrated Burns Night in style.
The school had a special assembly to celebrate the birth of Scotland’s bard.
Martin Frame, the principal teacher at Cathkin, felt the day was a big hit with pupils and their families.
He said: “The house and vice captains in P7 organised the entertainment with myself.
“Each class learned a Scottish poem or song and chose two winners.
“We had recitals of ‘Michael’, ‘The Bonnie Sausage and Tattie Scone Song’ and ‘Ye Cannae Shove Yir Granny Aff A Bus,’ and Mrs McFadyen then played the guitar to accompany a Scottish medley.
“Parents commented very positively on the children and teachers’ hard work and commitment.
“As 2018 is Scotland’s Year of the Young People, each class designed posters advertising ideas from this.
“We had posters showing the most popular Scottish word chosen by young people, which was braw, famous Scottish sports people, animals and Scottish costumes and dress.”
