We held our annual Burns Supper on Saturday 30 January in the school hall. The event was a fundraiser for the forthcoming Sixth Year trip to London and provided entertainment for parents, staff and other regular supporters. Guests were served a traditional four-course meal prepared by Kevin Fraser and May MacLeod.
The haggis was piped in by Ally Weir and addressed by Ronan Cameron; Mr MacLean said the Selkirk Grace and the evening was chaired by Sharlene Campbell.
After dinner the main speaker of the evening was John Finlayson, Head Teacher, Portree Primary School, who toasted the ‘Immortal Memory’. Jim Sutherland recited ‘Holy Willie’s Prayer’ with Jordan Jamieson ably toasting ‘The Lassies’. ‘The Lassies Reply’ or ‘Revenge’ was eloquently delivered by Hannah Calder who also sang ‘Rantin Rovin Robin’ and ‘Ae Fond Kiss’, accompanied by Ally Weir on guitar. The entertainment was rounded off by Leigh MacGillivray who recited ‘To A Mountain Daisy’. Dancing went on until late with music from Andrew Macdonald and Lauren Moir.
Thanks to all who supported the event, especially Mrs Hume who coordinated everything and our sponsors the Alexandra Hotel and the Ben Nevis Distillery. The final amount raised was £1232.
