A Scottish Tradition
Last week, our Year 9 and 10 students learnt about Burns Night and Scottish culture. Burns night is a tradition, celebrated every year on the 25th January in honour of Robert Burns, who is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland.
A key part of the traditional supper is the famous poem, 'Address to a Haggis', which begins with the line 'Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face'. Dressed in a kilt for the occasion, our guest speaker, Chris Sangster, talked to the students about Scottish traditions and performed the poem in the Scots language, with a translation. Our students learnt about tartan, bagpipes and the haggis as well as trying out some Scots words.
