Portlethen Primary School had a rare time last Friday as some of the classes held an excellent Burns Supper.

The classes honoured the bard in a tradition manner by piping in the haggis, reciting of poetry and learning about table etiquette in advance.

Primary five teacher, Fiona Lindsay, told the Mearns Leader: “The children worked extremely hard to plan, organise and then participate in the Burns Supper. “It was the first time that many of the class had tasted haggis and clootie dumpling.

“Entertainment was provided by dancers, recitations, fiddlers and a pianist and everyone joined in with the singing of Scots songs.

“The children and our special guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They left at the end of the day full of enthusiasm, satisfaction, as confident individuals and successful learners.

“Through this enterprise they have developed many life skills. I am very proud of the children for making the event a roaring success and a fitting tribute to our national bard.”
