As part of our contribution towards the year of Home Coming celebrating the 250th Anniversary of the birth of Bro Robert Burns, Lodge Robert Burns No. 440 donated Burns books to the Local Schools in Baillieston.
Bannerman High, Caledonia Primary, St. Bridgets Primary, Swinton Primary, St Francis Primary and Garrowhill Primary all received books from the Lodge.
Bro. Peter Mitchell PM and Bro. Ted Boult PM who have promoted the works of Robert Burns for many years in and out of the Lodge at once volunteered to deliver these books.
Peter and Ted received a great welcome at each school, moreso from Caledonia Primary who have invited them back on a number of occasions to assist the pupils with their Burns recitals.
Jackie Mullen Assistant Headmistress was instrumental in involving Peter and Ted supporting the Primary 6 class in their Burns Supper preparations.
Peter and Ted have both reported their delight of the enthusiasm displayed by the pupils and teachers for the works of Robert Burns.
