The Oban Times - - DISTRICTS -

DUN­BEG High School pupils bag­piped in the ‘great chief­tain o the pud­din’-race’ and ‘clapped in his walie nieve a blade’ at their Burns lunch on the birth­day of Scot­land’s na- tional bard Robert Burns, Jan­uary 25.

The en­tranced chil­dren pack­ing the can­teen then got stuck into the tra­di­tional Scot­tish fare of hag­gis, bashed neeps and champit tat­ties pre­pared by the school cooks, and car­ried with cer­e­mony to the top ta­ble by head teacher Sine MacVicar.

Fig­ures re­gard­ing clean plates are not avail­able.

Pri­mary seven pupils Rosie Da­iron, Becky Jef­fery, An­gus Brack and Katie MacEwan piped in and ad­dressed the hag­gis.
