Edinburgh District Burns Competition Success

Huge well done to all our finalists who took part in the Burns’ regional finals on Saturday 24th March at St George’s School.

Dean Park’s finalists

The three events – poetry, singing and instrumental – all took place at the same time in separate rooms with different judges.  Despite this logistical challenge, Mrs Wright and Mrs Kiggins were able to see all the Dean Park children compete and commented on how well they each performed.

Overall, numbers were slightly down on previous years due to the rescheduled date, however competition was still extremely strong.  We were delighted with Dean Park’s results:-

    • Hamish W – 3rd in P6/P7 Instrumental
    • Iona M – 3rd in P4/P5 Poetry
    • Freya R – 2nd in P4/P5 Poetry
    • Maya B – 2nd in P6/P7 Singing
    • Mhairi S – 1st in P6/P7 Poetry and overall winner

Those placed 1st and 2nd will now compete in the National competition in May.  Many congratulations to all our winners and to Mhairi on her outstanding achievement.

All our finalists did extremely well and they should be extremely proud of their performances on the day and to have made it this far in the competition.

A great day for Dean Park! Well done!
