Highland hoist

Highlanders players Sione Misiloi (left) and Tevita Nabura join Highland dancer Harper Higginson (6), of Allanton, at the Highland Fair at Outram School yesterday.

The fair coincided with the welcome for the school’s new principal, Kim Allan.

Friends of Outram School chairwoman Victoria Robertson said the day had been a resounding success.

"Lots of families who were not from Outram School also came out ... lots of fun and lots of giggles."

She said there was a strong Scottish theme to the day, with Highland dancers and a haggis ceremony.

"It was very, very Scottish. Even the Highlanders put on kilts."

The money collected had not been counted yet, but Ms Robertson said she was happy with the turn-out.

The funds would go back into the school and help pay for the Kelly Sports programme to visit pupils every two weeks.
