The Story of St.Andrew - Haylands Primary School

The Story of Saint Andrew Who was Andrew? Andrew was one of Jesus first disciples.

How do we know about Andrew? Andrew was very sad when Jesus died. He wanted to tell everyone about Jesus. He travelled to lots of countries including Russia and Greece.

Some people were cross with Andrew for teaching about Jesus. Andrew was tied to a big

wooden cross with ropes until he died. Andrew carried on talking about Jesus for two whole days before he died. He is said to have died on November 30th.

How did he become the patron Saint of Scotland? Many years after St. Andrew had died a man called Regulus had a dream which told him to carry the bones of

St. Andrew to the end of the Earth. Scotland was so far from Greece that Regulus thought it was the end of the Earth.

His boat landed on the East Coast of Scotland. He buried St Andrews bones and built a church on top. Today there is a town at that

place called St. Andrews. The Scottish people made Andrew their Patron Saint and chose as their flag a Saltaire (Greek) Cross on a sea blue

background. When is Saint Andrews Day? On November 30th every year people in Scotland, Greece and all over the world remember and celebrate the life of St.

Andrew. St. Andrews Day is connected with Advent, which begins on the nearest Sunday to 30 November. St. Andrews Day marks the opening of

Christmas Markets. How do people celebrate? People celebrate the day by going to a ceilidh where they do Scottish country dancing.

A few years ago a flock of blue sheep appeared in central Scotland as part of events to mark St Andrew's Day.

at is the national emblem of Scotland? The thistle. A group of Scots were sleeping in a field when a group of Vikings crept up to attack.

Fortunately one of the Vikings stood on a thistle and was pricked by its thorns. He yelped in pain, waking the sleeping Scots who were able to fight off their attackers. So the legend of why the thistle has been adopted as Scotlands national emblem
