I am beginning to wonder about our luck. Today I was scheduled to give a talk at Hamnavoe Primary Schoo since our illuminations are currently in Burra. Some of the pupils can see the illumination from their homes, and some made films this summer in the Light Labs. Imagine my surprise when I arrived to find fire engines and police, then two journalists with a big microphone scuttling over to the school. There was a fire in the school, and all pupils and staff were evacuated! I was surprised but disappointed, as I love my visits to the schools. Last Friday I went to Dunrossness Primary where I worked with the P7 pupils who made wonderful films for our last set of illuminations.
