Pitch Perfect Burns Supper

The Roedean Pitch Perfect Burns Supper

30 Jan 2018
School News
The School hosted a fantastic Burns Supper on Friday 26 January.  The evening was a traditional celebration of the life and works of Robert Burns and brought together every part of the School community including parents, ORs, Council, staff and pupils.

Guests donned their finest tartan and were welcomed to the event in the Old Ref by traditional piping.  After drinks and a lively game of Heads and Tails, everyone enjoyed a traditional Burns Supper of Scotch Broth, Haggis, Neeps and Tatties, and Cranachan for dessert.  The piper led the procession carrying the haggis into the room, and speeches, toasts and poems throughout the evening included the Selkirk Grace, Address to the Haggis, a Toast to the Lassies, and the Reply on Behalf of the Lassies. There was also entertainment with beautiful Scottish music performed by some of the School’s finest musicians.  Everyone enjoyed the evening immensely and we hope this will become an annual event at Roedean.

Pitch Perfect will transform our facilities for sport. It will cost £2 million. To complete the project we need to raise £500,000 in donations.  Over £200,000 has been given or pledged so far. This is very encouraging but we do need your help. If you would like to support this project by naming your own 'pitch plot', having your own bench at the pitch and/or joining the School's 1885 Society, please contact Mark Taylor on or on 01273 667588. We are hugely grateful for every gift, large and small.

It is easy to support the School's Pitch Perfect appeal by donating online.
