PUPILS at Lomond School had a week celebrating Scottish culture and all things Robert Burns.

The week kicked off when the children were piped into school on the Monday morning by Colin Ferguson, a former pupil.

The children learned and performed Scots poetry and music, from the more traditional Burns to some modern and humorous verse.

Indoor Highland Games proved popular as it gave the children the opportunity to try their hand at hammer throwing, caber tossing and welly whanging.

The Junior four class stepped up to complete the Scottish week by turning their classroom into the Wee Thistle Cafe and opening their doors to hungry customers.

Haggis bon bons and tablet were popular with the customer base and rounded off the celebrations.

Ailsa Lawn, head of Junior School said: ‘Wherever possible, we like to bring learning to life for our pupils and this week has enable us to do that on so many levels.

"Not only are the children learning about history and culture but they are also exploring language through different mediums and even practising their maths cashing up their takings in the Wee Thistle Café."
