HOPEMAN Primary School pupils celebrated the legacy of Scotland's Bard with a Burns supper last week.

Traditional Scottish music was played before kids enjoyed some classic Robert Burns poems throughout lunch.

And the day was rounded off with a rendition of Auld Lang Syne.

Lacey MacDonald, the school's acting headteacher, said: "The Leaders of Change group at Hopeman Primary, which is leading on events, planned and hosted a traditional Burns supper.

"This was an opportunity to share with the rest of the school the formalities that happen at a Burns supper and an opportunity to celebrate the life of Robert Burns.

"The events group welcomed us to our Burns lunch with some traditional Scottish music played by Chloe Anderson.

"We enjoyed snippets of some of Burns classic poems throughout the lunch and ended by singing Auld Lang Syne.

"We look forward to welcoming the Elgin Burns Club to school next week to share Scots stories and songs.

"They will all support in judging our annual Scots verse."
