Success for Bairns of The Bard!

25 January 2018

Junior School pupils won top awards in the annual Robert Burns Festival Competition at the Trades Hall of Glasgow last week, organised for primary schools by the Trades House of Glasgow. 

High School pupils took all three awards in the Solo Instrumental section, for Primary 4 & 5 pupils. Maya Marshall (J5) took top prize for her performance of 'Auld Lang Syne' on the clarsach, while performances of 'Ye Banks and Braes' by Yasmin Lamb (J5) on the violin and Nimrita Kaur Singh (J5) on the harp, saw them finish in second and third positions respectively. In the Primary 6 & 7 section, Cameron Davies (J6) came second performing 'John Anderson, My Jo' on the violin.

Todd Shafar (J5) won top prize in the Verse Speaking for Primary 4 & 5, reciting Burns’ Bannockburn address 'Scots Wha Hae', with Eklavya Singh (J6) finishing second in the Primary 6 & 7 section for his recitation of 'The Rights of Woman' and Zayd Khan (J6) third for his rendition of 'Address to the Haggis'. Certificates were also awarded to Murray Gill, Ibrahim Khan, Lucy Robertson and Rosie Snedden (all J4) for their recitations.

Pupils will return to the Trades Hall of Glasgow next month for the Prizegiving ceremony.
