Haggis on menu for Burns birthday at Stanbury Primary School
Updated 12:43pm Friday 31st January 2014 in News
Haggis was on the menu as Stanbury Primary School pupils celebrated the birthday of Scottish poet Robert Burns.
They tucked into the North of the Border delicacy during their annual Burns Supper held on Friday lunchtime.
Pupils walked to the top table with headteacher Graham Swinbourne for the traditional cutting of the haggis.
Before the meal, there was a rendition of the Selkirk Grace, which was written by Burns, and the children sang Auld Lang Syne.
Mr Swinbourne said: “The haggis is traditionally cut with a sword but we used a big knife.
“We sang all the verses of Auld Lang Syne, not just the chorus.”
Pupils also learned about Scottish culture and heritage during the event, which is held every year at the school.
