On Saturday night the Bartlett Hall was transformed for the school’s celebration of the poet and Scottish hero Robbie Burns. Around 100 parents, friends and staff enjoyed a delicious six course banquet. There was an enthusiastic ‘Address to the Haggis’ and entertaining speeches interspersed the evening. Mr Taunt was presented with a decanter and glasses to thank him for providing the 'Speech to the Lassies' during his time as Head of the school.
A true Scot said, “I’ve been to a number of Burns’ Nights over the years and that has to rank as one of the best.” A Year 13 parent asked, “My son leaves the school this year, please, please can we still come back for Burns’ Night when he’s gone.” The evening would not have been such a success without the dedication and support of the PFA committee and all the helpers, together with the Year 10 pupils who were waiters and waitresses on the evening. Thank you to all those who were involved in making this event such an overwhelming success and to Sam Haigh (11King) for taking the photos on the evening.
