Bagpipes at the ready!
Bruern hosted the annual Burns supper, at both the Senior School and the Prep School. It was a wonderful celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns (25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796), the author of many Scots poems.
Leo S from the Senior School has this write up of the evening: This Wednesday Bruern Abbey Senior School enjoyed the Scottish celebration, Burns night.
This traditional Scottish holiday commemorates the life of bard Robert Burns and his contribution to Scottish culture. Us here at Bruern Senior celebrated this tradition with an introduction of bagpipes enthusiastically played by Mr Gardener, and Mr Fyfe addressing of the haggis (and a backup of chicken for those who could not brave the haggis!) complete with a side of root mash and assorted vegetables.
As the first course came to a dramatic end we settled down for a rendition of “to a mouse” performed by a set of students which consisted of Etienne M, Jasper J, Ishaan C and Leo S all of which tried their hand at a Scottish accent much to the amusement of the rest of the attendees. We finished the meal with a cranachan. The guests and staff then went to the entrance hall for a cup of coffee to round off the night.
