The latest Burnhaven School performance was a massive hit with families and friends.

As is always the case with Burnhaven, tickets were scarce and the school was well supported by parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles.

The pupils gave a fantastic performance showcasing the talents of the school choir, the winners of the school Burns poetry competition, the beautiful Highland dancers, the violin students, guest performances of poetry and song, and music from the very talented academy ceilidh band.

There were poetry winners from all primary age groups and the audience heard poems like ‘Wee Jakie Peerie’ and ‘There was an ald Wifie fa bide in a beet’, performed with confidence and pride.

Among the songs sang by the choir were The Northern Lights, Scotland the Brave, an amazing solo from Grace Latta (9) with Loch Lomond and a guest performance during Bonny Wee Jeannie McColl from Mr Arthur Taylor who the choir love singing with.

The dancers treated the audience to Reels, Swords and Seann Truibhas all dressed in their stunning Highland outfits and everyone present had a chance to join in with the dances during the academy ceilidh band’s performance. The evening ended with a splendid rendition of ‘Shak’a Hand by Mr Arthur Taylor.

A thoroughly enjoyable night was had by all and one which the school hopes to recreate again soon.
