A successful Day 1(added 21.08.15)
Thank you for preparing your children so well for their return to school at our decant building. They had a great day, touring the building and catching up with their friends. There was great excitement! Staff did a super job of making sure children settled in ~ thank you all. As e-mail lists are not yet updated, keep an eye on the website and school bags for communication.
Almost there! (added 19.08.15)
Our amazing staff team at Burnside have worked so hard to prepare our school for welcoming pupils tomorrow. The building seems to have turned into Burnside Primary overnight ~ thank you all! This afternoon, we welcomed many of our new P1 pupils and families as they popped in to see their classrooms and teachers. It was so encouraging to hear such positive comments about our welcoming environment. P1 parents will have an opportunity to join current parents at a coffee morning in school this Friday, from 9.30 am.
Staff will be on hand to welcome pupils from the buses in the morning. We will also be at the 'Nursery Entrance' from 8.50 am to welcome returning pupils not travelling on the buses and at 9 am to welcome our new P1 pupils. We understand that some P1 pupils (booked on buses) may be picked up by parents at 12 pm in the first couple of days. Please telephone the school office by 11 am if this is the case ~ we don't want to escort any pupil onto a bus who is being picked up!
As tomorrow will be our first functioning day in the decant building, for safety reasons we need to limit the number of adults in the building at peak times. We will therefore ask P1 parents bringing their children to school at 9 am to remain outside the building. Staff will escort children safely to the hall and their teachers. There will be an opportunity for parents to take photographs of their children at our 'Meet our Teachers' event on Wednesday 2 September, 11.30 - 12.00 pm.
Good luck to all pupils on their first day of the new session at Burnside Primary!
