Burns Supper 2017
On Thursday the 16th of February, Carluke High School hosted their annual “Burns’ Supper” to celebrate the birth of the admired Scottish poet, Robert Burns. Mrs McDonald, who organised the event said: “It is a great way to embrace Scottish culture in our school”.
Guests such as Provost Eileen Logan, Rev Ian Cunningham, Kathleen Feeney - Development Manager at Carluke Development Trust, Aileen Campbell MSP and many more attended the event to join in with the celebration.
Students and teachers honoured the poet by devouring traditional Scottish cuisine such as haggis, neeps and tatties whilst accessorising with plenty of tartan. The audience enjoyed a splendid performance from S6 violinist Sean Allan who stunned the crowd with a series of traditional Scottish music. Carluke High Band ‘Upside Axis’ also performed an array of songs by Scottish artists such as Biffy Clyro and The Corries. Mr Anderson addressed the haggis and Mr Murray gave an amazing performance of "Tam O Shanter".
The night finished on a high note as the audience gathered to sing a lovely rendition of ‘Auld Lang Syne’. Harry Richardson, Head Boy at CHS said: “It was a lovely night for the school to celebrate a national hero”.
