PUPILS at Cleland Primary School were transported back in time when the Hopscotch Theatre Company introduced them to Tam O’Shanter.

Supercounty, Lanarkshire’s Civic Pride Campaign, arranged the visit for P4-7 pupils in memory of founder member Bill Irvine.

Head of Supercounty, John Scott, said: “The Bill Irvine Memorial Burns’ Journey project aims to engage with primary school children to keep both the Bard and Bill’s memory alive.

“The children were engrossed in the poem and genuinely seemed to have a good time. The performance was fully interactive with the children having the opportunity to dance some traditional Scottish jigs and reels.”

Headteacher Marie Donald added: “It’s always great when the children get the opportunity to interact and the singing and dancing added to their enjoyment.

“I would like to thank the Hopscotch Theatre Company for a wonderful performance and Supercounty for arranging the visit.”
