In­ver­lochy young­sters prove they have the Scots Fac­tor

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

IN­VER­LOCHY Pri­mary School pupils proved that they have the Scots Fac­tor when they took part in a Scots lan­guage po­etry com­pe­ti­tion on Fri­day.

Pupils from pri­mary one through to seven took part, recit­ing po­etry and sing- ing songs in Scots. They were whit­tled down to three fi­nal­ists from each class.

The fi­nal­ists per­formed in front of their peers and par­ents, as well as the three guest judges – photographer Iain Fer­gu­son, Dun­cans­burgh Church min­is­ter Rev­erend Richard Bax­ter, and Rev­erend Chris ‘Kiki’ MacRae from Kil­mallie Free Church.

The over­all win­ners from each class were Katie McIn­tyre, Rory Young, Daniel Parfitt, Ben Mc­Gre­gor, Phoebe Judge, Vic­toire Bakhache and Ai­den MacLel­lan.

Deputy head teacher Tanya Ross said: ‘The chil­dren re­ally en­joyed it and they were con­fi­dent when they were per­form­ing their po­ems.’
