Big Burns Supper Lantern Procession

Beattock Primary and Nursery pupils had a ball on Burns Day as they joined the 4000 strong lantern procession through Dumfries. We were one of 23 schools in the region to participate and it was estimated that 10,000 people took part in this special celebration!

It was a wonderful experience for pupils to be involved in a creative, energetic and exciting community event.

Huge thank you to Miss King for organising the lantern making and massive thank you to our lovely parents who chauffeured and chaperoned children from Beattock to Dumfries and back. We couldn’t have done it without you, but we think you had as much fun as the kids! See you next year for an even bigger display!
