Burnside celebrates Scots (added 31.01.16)
Pupils celebrated a week of Scots language and culture last week as each class studied a text in Scots and took part in a variety of fun activities such as our own Highland Games, Scots Treasure Hunt and a special visit from Scottish storyteller, Stuart McHardy. The week began with a ministerial visit from Aileen Campbell, MSP. Ms. Campbell's visit was prompted by announcements regarding Government funding for Schools Modernisation projects. She was given a tour of our school by P.7 leads of the Pupil Council, Eco Committee, Sports Council and Burnside Fairtraders, having been treated to Room 13's rehearsal of their Burns Supper. Ms. Campbell and Mr. Gilhooly (Executive Director) along with other SLC representatives were clearly impressed by our talented youngsters. Well done and thanks to everyone involved! See our photos in the gallery.
