Burns in Todholm Primary

Over 100 pupils listened to the Bard's story in Todholm Primary recently. The searching questions after showed how much they had enjoyed the performance and how well they had listened.

Burns in Burntisland Erskine Church

The Burns250 show had a successful evening recently for the Erskine Church. Some fifty plus turned out for an evening of Burns on the day after his birthday. After an hour and a half of attentive listening, the guests were served soup and snacks.

Burns in Strathmiglo

I appeared in the village hall for the youngsters in Strathmiglo recently. They were very enthusiastic and we had about an hour and a quarter of Burns. They have been studying him in class and I was well impressed with the quick look I managed at their pictures and stories.
The usual time for questions brought forward one or two which showed they had been listening. So well done Strathmiglo!

Burns in Bearsden

I recently took the Burns250 show to Bearsden - to the Literary Society no less. What a wonderful evening was had by all!
A very appreciative audience made my part so much easier...and the CDs were in great demand afterwards.
My thanks to Roberta for organising it and to all who came along. We had only time for about an hour and half of Burns so a return visit was suggested and I would be delighted to go back and tell them some about our Bard.

Cupar Follow Up

I was delighted to receive a whole batch of letters from pupils in St Columba's School telling me how much they enjoyed the show. The word 'inspired' was mentioned several times and that's what this is all about really. We are obliged to introduce the next generation to the Bard and his works, for they are the future!

A special big thanks to C and M in P7 who sent me their drawing of Robert Burns (shown here) and to A in P6 for his wonderful letter.

Burns in Cupar again

Pupils from several schools got together last week for a lunchtime show in Cupar. Amongst others, Craigrothie and St Columbas were represented with over 60 p6&7 pupils present. The show was well received with Tam O Shanter being a particular request. Sadly no pic....but feedback to follow.
