National Limerick Day 2020

Well done to everyone that took part in the Fettes Limerick challenge as part of National Limerick Day on Tuesday. We had some fantastic submissions from prep pupils, college students and staff members, making the decision of who to crown the winners rather difficult. 

After much debate and deliberation, we are delighted to announce the winners in each category: 

Prep School: 

Calum N (2nd Form)

There once was a virus called Covid, 

That started in China unnoticed,

It spread worldwide,

and many folk died,

Now when working it's hard to stay focused



Sam S (U6th Form)

Things might seem difficult tonight,

But we can all come together and fight,

Whether we clap at eight,

Or Facetime a mate,

We will all get through this alright.



Mrs du Vivier

This virus just beggars belief:

No school, no exams, only grief!

This system is gruelling, 

With work and home schooling,

How we miss the Upper Sixth in Craigleith!


Thank you to everyone for their fantastic submissions. What fun we had reading them all.
