|The Scottish Flower|
One of our new assistants is called Jamie. He's from Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland. However, he's only lived there for about ten years due to his mother's job, which caused him and his family to travel to many places such as Costa Rica, Mexico, the USA, etc.
He's told us some facts about Scotland. For instance, the population is around 5.2 million people. Its patron is Saint Andrew, and its national anthem is "The Flower of Scotland" (which, by the way, is a thistle).
Scotland is famous for its castles (like the Sterling and the Edinburgh castles), the Loch Ness and the legendary monster that's supposed to live there, haggis (a traditional dish that consists of liver, oats and fat served in a sheep's stomach) and Robert "Rabbie" Burns, a famous poet who wrote the song "Auld Lang Syne". Famous celebrations include Hogmanay (on the 31st of December, Burns Night (on the 25th of January), the Highland Games (from May to September) and the Edinburgh Festival (in August).
Jamie likes football and supports the Celtic Football club and the AVFC.
He likes to read and play the guitar. He has a younger sister, Sadie, who is currently studying at university. He's been in Spain for about a month now. He likes the warm weather and the food, and doesn't regret coming here!
