What were you doing on Saint Piran’s Day?
Bosvigo School children dressed up in black, white, yellow and gold to celebrate Cornwall’s patron saint.
Lower Key Stage 2 started the day by singing Broder Jakka (Brother Jack) and Myten Da (Good Morning) in Cornish! We then created Kernow cards and flags and shared these with our families and the whole of Truro.
We kept on celebrating, as the kitchen staff had prepared a Cornish lunch of mini pasties and special apple cake dessert. Delicious!
Thousands of people came and watched the long, noisy parade through the city, as we waved our flags and cried, “Oggy, Oggy, Oggy, Oy! Oy! Oy! ”
As we arrived at High Cross (the ancient, granite, Celtic cross) outside the Cathedral, we were amazed when we realised how many other schools had joined in. After listening to the Grand Bard and our Member of Parliament, it was time to enjoy a re-enactment of the legend of Saint Piran and Cornish country dancing.
Finally, we all sang Trelawney together and gave one last cheer for Saint Piran. Kernow bys vyken!
