Welcome back to session 2016/17!
I hope everyone has enjoyed a happy and safe summer. We are all looking forward to new beginings on Monday 15th August. If your child is in P2 to P7 and not travelling by bus, they can enter by the side (old nursery) entrance at 9 am. New P1 pupils not travelling by bus are invited along via the same entrance between 9.10 and 9.30 am on Monday. From Tuesday 16th August P1 pupils can enter by the side door at 9 am. For the first week, P1 pupils will be dismissed at 12 pm - either at the side door. Those travelling by bus should arrive back at drop-off points in Burnside around 12.15 pm.
Currently the internet is down at school although we expect this to be rectified on Monday. If you need to contact us, telephone would be best until we can be sure e-mails can be picked up.
We look forward to welcoming all pupils back on Monday!
Summer Evening Party - UPDATE 15.35 New! Our Summer Evening Party will still go ahead tonight 6.00-8.00 pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
Sports Fun Day (added 13.06.16) This Thursday, 16th June we will be getting active in school outdoors (hopefully!). P1-3 will be busy 10.45-12 pm, while P4-7 will take their turn 1.15-2.30 pm. The children will form teams and will aim to earn as many points as possible as they rotate round a variety of activities. Parents/carers are welcome to drop by, however please note if it is wet, our Sports Council will organise an alternative indoor programme and we would be unable to accommodate parents indoors. We will send a text in this case ~ here's hoping for dry weather!
Summer Evening Party - 6-8 pm. Please come along on Thursday evening for a bite to eat while the children join in some fun activities. Bouncy Castle-£2, pocket money toys-20p/50p, tattoos/nails/face painting-all from 50p.....and much much more! We would be grateful of any home baking donations - please send in on Thursday - our Burnside bakers are the best!Thank you!

Lockerbie Manor 2016 - Day 4 (Friday 06.05.16) Well our final day has arrived. The children tell me it has been a long yet quick week. Our biggest challenge was packing our cases! The boys won hands down for being the most organised (sorry girls, but it's true). After breakfast and packing our three groups took to the final set of activities - orienteering, climbing wall and crate stacking. Many were feeling rather tired and the thought of going home excited them. For others, they could have stayed a good bit longer.
I hope all the parents have enjoyed washing all the dirty clothes over the weekend. The children were a pleasure to take away and we hope they have learned lots about themselves and others. We shall see all the children bright and early tomorrow (Monday).
