S1 Burns Supper

On Thursday night over 170 pupils, family, staff and friends attended the annual S1 Burns Supper at Beaton Road. 

Everyone enjoyed a fantastic night with an evening of live entertainment and traditional Scottish food. 

They were piped in by S4 pupil Craig Geddes and S1 pupils delivered a number of fantastic performances, paying tribute to the Bard.

Calum Wicklow kicked off the feast with a wonderful rendition of Selkirk Grace, with the haggis then being addressed by Mr McDougall. This was followed by a moving rendition of 'Ae Fond Kiss' by Andrew Watt accompanied by Mr Scott on guitar. Max Miller then delivered an informative and well researched 'Immortal Memory' and a true Scots performance of 'To a Mouse' was given by Samuel Sabharwal and Firth Borland. 

Annvita Gupta treated the audience to a jaunty interpretation of 'Bonnie Wee Jeannie McColl' followed by the comedic genius of Calum Gallanders in his 'Toast to the Lassies'. 

Sofia Roy and Delphine Nairn worked in perfect unison to respond with their thoughtful 'Reply from the Lassies'. Mr Scott led the audience in an enthusiastic rendition of 'Auld Lang Syne' to close the evening. 

A raffle was held on the night and thanks to the generosity of the guests, the pupils managed to raise £395 for the school charity, Calum's Cabin. 

The S1 year tutor team thanked everyone who helped make the night so successful.
