Tartan Day

April 6 2016, marks Tartan Day, a day where people around the world celebrate their Scottish heritage.   The date marks the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320 and special events are taking place in Scotland, America and Canada to honor the achievements of Scottish descendants.

Founder and MD of ISSOS Jen Munro, has been invited by the US Consulate to a celebrate Tartan Day at Glasgow City Chambers.  This year is an important one for ISSOS as a company, as we form strong links with the USA as we launch our summer program at Yale University.  ISSOS may have started out at St Andrews University, but over the last 10 years, our programs have developed and numbers increased, meaning we now have four summer sessions: two at St Andrews University, one at Cambridge University and one at Yale.  We are very much looking forward to an exciting summer ahead. 

We hope everyone celebrating their Scottish roots, enjoys the Tartan Day celebrations, wherever you are in the world!
