Following an invitation from the Mayor of North Down, Councillor Peter Martin, Holywood Primary School children and staff attended a Welcoming Parade for The Royal Scots Borderers. The Battalion, known as 1 Scots, have recently moved from Edinburgh to Palace Barracks as part of 38 (Irish) Brigade. Some of the boys and girls and a member of staff from our school were especially proud as they watched members of their families taking part.
The Battalion paraded along High Street in Holywood. Many people from the community joined our school to watch and show their appreciation too. Our boys and girls enjoyed listening to the pipers as well as seeing them in their smart kilts and uniforms.Their favourite member of the parade was the very cute mascot, the Shetland pony.
