Children at Mount Pleasant Primary School in Thurso enjoyed a celebration of all things Scottish when they marked the 265th birthday of Robert Burns.
Primary 6 and the P6/7 children from Gaelic Medium entertained the whole school with a true Burns Bonanza. First of all the children acted out the Burns song Charlie Is My Darling.
This was followed by Emme Spence, P7, and Shona McNicol, P6 teacher, piping in the haggis.
Next the children recited The Selkirk Grace and Address To A Haggis, with cook Sarah Farquhar cutting open the haggis.
The fun carried on into the afternoon with a whole school ceilidh, with music and entertainment provided by Robin Young.
Audrey Robson, the school’s depute head, said: “How lovely it was to see the children coming together to follow tradition and celebrate. The primary 6 children did a marvellous job providing the early entertainment – a real credit to the school.”
