'As you may know, Knox has been celebrating the Burns 250 anniversary in many ways: Burns poetry reading and writing in English, "Tam O' Shanter' illustrations in Art, Burns songs in Music, and the life of Burns in History. If you have a son or daughter in S1 or S2, he or she may well have entered a poem or drawing in a local or national competition, or won a prize in a Burns quiz.

To mark this event, Knox Academy is offering you the chance to purchase the commemorative £2 uncirculated coin at a discounted price. The reverse of the coin features an extract from the original manuscript of "Auld Lang Syne", while the outer ring contains the text 1759 ROBERT BURNS 1796, £2.

The coin is housed in a presentation pack which contains an illustrated booklet on the life and works of Robert Burns. It is available from Knox at the discounted price of £4.74 (Retail price £7.78)'.

If you are interested in purchasing a commemorative coin please contact Mr Plain (Librarian).

Thank you.
