Miller Academy Primary School in Thurso was awash with tartan to mark Burns Day when a delicious traditional Burns Day lunch of haggis and sausages was enjoyed. After lunch, the whole school joined together to celebrate Burns and Scotland.

Head teacher Jacqui Budge said: “It was so lovely to have so many children volunteer to perform at our Scottish celebration and we were also so proud of our classes who learned songs, such as our 45 little primary 1 children who sang Three Craws and P4 who learned and sang You Cannae Shove Your Granny Off A Bus, which everyone joined in with and the actions were great fun!

“We also had P2/3 learn and beautifully sing The Aiken Drum in addition to our volunteers of Highland Dancers.”
