SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Some local students are learning how to have fun the Scottish way.

Students at Saint Andrews school in Savannah are grouped into six different Scottish clans throughout the year to help build unity.

On Tuesday, the students participated in Scottish clan day where they played Scottish games.

The lower school students performed an Scottish dance, while the upper school had an iPad drum band competition.

Organizers say it's a great way for all of the students to get to know each other.

"I got to dance," said second grade student Keyonna Williams.

"It builds unity," said event organizer Donna Roundtree. "It builds team unity within the clans, that is the purpose of the clans, for the little ones to have an older one. We are a small school, it helps us get to know each other."

The students will have a Scottish clan competition with out door games at the end of the year.
