Burns Night, on Saturday, January 24th, saw some 40 odd IBSB students, staff, and parents don their social best and head out for an evening to celebrate Robbie Burns, the famous Scottish poet, and all that is Scottish, including haggis, Scottish refreshments, and dancing. Mr Peet opened up the evening with the traditional reading of the Selkirk Grace, Mr Hewitt joined the procession bringing in the haggis, and Ms Jones read out some excerpts from Burns in presenting the perfect image of a Scottish man, complete with all his imperfections. We ate, drank, and danced the night away, with everyone leaving feeling imbued and enlivened with the Scottish Spirit.
Thank you to Stan and Camelia Platt and the entire Light into Europe team for organising such a wonderful night for everyone, and to Claudia Marta, our PTF president, for rallying the troops to ensure a good turnout from IBSB for what is without a doubt a very worthy cause- developing the Romanian Guide Dog Programme. If you are interested in working with Light into Europe to support their guide dog programme, please contact Stan Platt, firstname.lastname@example.org.
