Students from the British School of Kuwait (BSK) were delighted to be invited to support the International Women’s Group (IWG) January meeting where a stimulating and interactive presentation on Scotland was delivered by Alexia Lodge, wife of the British Ambassador to Kuwait. January is a special month in the Scottish calendar as the famous poet, Robbie Burns, is commemorated at Burns Night events, which includes supper, poetry, speeches, songs and other traditions.
BSK’s Middle Department Choir performed some well-known songs such as Loch Lomond and Ye Banks and Ye Braise. The program included a sword dance performed by Teodor Bejancu from The British Academy of International Arts (BAIA) after which the IWG members enjoyed the chance to practice this unique folk dance for themselves. A wonderful morning of cultural treats from Scotland was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
