S1 Burns Supper 2020

S1 pupils got the Burns Supper season off to a flying start last night with their annual Bitesize Burns in the Beaton Road dining room.

Around ninety pupils, staff, parents and friends attended the event and were entertained and served their supper by a group of multi-talented S1 pupils.

Ailsa kicked off the proceedings with her confident welcome speech. S1 piper Lewis piped in his first ever haggis which was duly addressed by Mr Jim McDougall and Luc delivered the Selkirk Grace.

Zoe and Kirsty’s beautiful duet ‘My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose’ started the evening’s musical entertainment, and Iona delivered an excellent performance of Eddi Reader’s ‘Wild Mountainside’ – a song written to showcase the work of Burns. Zoe performed the appropriately named ‘Highland Fling’ on keyboard.

Arianna, Phoebe and Sulayman — wearing his family’s official Bhatti tartan — recited ‘To a Mouse’ in their best broad Scots.

The Immortal Memory was delivered with great conviction by Deasy and Daniella. Later, Kian and David gave a witty and polished Toast to the Lassies and received a clever reply from Maggie and Lara. Holly rounded off the evening with her vote of thanks.

The Bitesize Burns was a great chance for S1 pupils to show off their many skills — as waiters, orators and musicians.
