PRIMARY school pupils across Helensburgh and Lomond embraced their inner poet recently as a raft of Scottish-themed events marked Robert Burns Day.

In Kilcreggan, around 120 friends and family attended the traditional Burns supper evening as children rose to the occasion by putting on great performances of song, dance and poetry.

Cove man Roddy Garden, now well known for his bagpiping exploits, piped in the haggis in traditional attire before it was addressed by hungry youngsters.

Meanwhile, in Rosneath, primary 6 and 7 pupils toasted the national bard by hosting their own Burns supper, featuring a medley of poems, songs and country dancing, along with a Scottish afternoon for all classes.

Laddies and lassies of Luss Primary also celebrated all things Scottish by wearing tartan to school and making the traditional dessert of cranachan, which was enjoyed after children recited poetry, snag songs and played Scottish music on violins.

Special mention must also go to the talented P6 pupils at Hermitage Primary, who produced an animated short film entitled ‘From Babbie to Rabbie’, available to watch on YouTube.
