I hope that everyone has enjoyed the summer holidays. We are looking forward to welcoming back pupils tomorrow, Thursday 17 August at 9 am (P.1 pupils 9.10-9.30 am) and look forward to hearing about all the summer fun.
Just a few reminders:-
Pupils should line up at 9 am in the playground, in their class lines (Rooms 3 and 4 infant playground, Rooms 5 – 9 middle playground and rooms 10 -14 upper playground).
All pupils should bring a P.E kit to remain in school for regular use.
Soft indoor shoes should be brought to school for pupils to change into while in the building. Gym shoes are fine (no slippers please!)
All pupils should bring a spill-proof bottle of water which can be re-filled throughout the day.
School lunches are free to pupils P1-3 and £1.50 to pupils P4-7.
School hours are now 9 am to 3 pm (lunch 12.35-1.25pm).
Parents of P1 and 2 pupils may enter the playground from 2.55pm to collect children.
Parking is not permitted in the staff car park or outside the school fencing. As a ‘Park & Stride’ school, we ask that you park away from Glenlui Avenue and Blairbeth Road when dropping off/collecting children.
Each child has a ‘named person’ within school. I have pastoral responsibility for Rooms 1 – 4, Mrs. McGovern has responsibility for Rooms 5 – 9, while Mr. Campbell oversees Room 10 – 14.
I look forward to working with you all this session.
Credit Union (added 20.06.17) Please note the final Credit Union collection will take place this Friday 23 June. We will inform Parents of new arrangements in the new sesion.
Primary 7 Leavers' Assembly 2017 (added 20.06.17) As we begin to say a farewell to the current Primary 7 we will have one final celebration to mark the end of their time at Burnside Primary. Issued today was a letter informing Parents/Carers that our annual Assembly will take place in Burnside Blairbeth Church on Thursday 22 June @ 9.45 am. All children should come to school as normal where they will be registerered and lunches can be ordered (usual lunch options apply). The school will then walk accompanied by school staff to celebrate with the Primary 7 pupils. We are sure the morning will be a huge success!
Sports Day (added 19.06.17) Thank you to all Parents/Carers who came to support the children at our first Sports Day in our new school. With such fantastic weather the day proved to be a huge success. Children will be informed of the team results at Friday's 'Burnside's Got Talent' morning.
