Today is St. Andrew’s Day, the day Scotland celebrates its patron saint. It’s now an official national holiday in Scotland, so some teachers and pupils who use EducationCity.com north of the border may not be in school today.
There are various events organised in all the main Scottish cities to mark the occasion. In Edinburgh, there is a ceilidh and a street party with live music. In Glasgow, Stirling and Inverness, there are similar events organised as well as Highland dancers and the flying of the Scottish Flag.
