Pupils joined the nation in celebrating the life and works of Robert Burns last week.

In the run up to Burns Night pupils learned about the bard, read some of his poems and even learned and recited Scottish poems themselves.

Schools also put on traditional lunches, giving pupils the opportunity to enjoy haggis, neeps and tatties as an alternative to the standard school menu.

Auchterellon Primary School were joined by piper Lewis Cantlay for their Burns assembly, which was led by House Captains and featured Highland Dancing.
