Junior School Scots Verse Competiton

28 January 2019 | Tagged: Junior School, Competitions, Events

Pupils at the Junior School took part in a Scots Verse Competition on Friday 25th January, a fitting tribute on Robert Burns' birthday.

All pupils from Junior 3 to Junior 6 recited a poem in Scots in their classes, with the winning two from each class going forward to perform again at Friday's Scots Verse Competition.

The school were fortunate to welcome Mr Alastair McFarlane, a well known figure in the Burns and amateur dramatics fraternities, to judge the competition. 

Mr McFarlane pointed out that it was "no easy task" to decide on who would be awarded prizes, particularly as the variety of verse was so diverse and each performance was excellent. After much deliberation, he made the following awards:

1st place - Amelia Campbell (J5), performing 'Is a Dove a Doo Daa?'

2nd place - Amelia Ronaldson (J6), performing 'Tae a Bottle Flip'

3rd place - Ibrahim Khan (J5), performing 'Scots, Wha Hae'
