U6 Burns Supper

Rober Burns 250w3We celebrated Robert Burns' birthday on 19th January. We had invited a guest speaker, Helena Anderson Wright, to propose the Toast to the Immortal Memory of Robert Burns. She analysed his poems, showed us the beauty behind them, and reminded us that his work is now well known on a global scale. We had different students taking part: Anna chaired the Supper, April and Kathryn played the bagpipes, Eilidh said the Selkirk Grace in Gaelic, Anna addressed the haggis, Lucy replied to the Toast to the Lassies, Haleema gave the Vote of Thanks and I was one of the 6 Burns Singers, led by April. It definitely taught me more about Scottish culture.

After dinner and speeches we went into the Hall for some ceilidh dancing and it was very enjoyable and fantastic as usual. I personally loved the ceilidh dancing the most that night.
