Dress Down Day for Gambia

DSCN2095

Thank you to pupils, staff, parents and carers who donated their £1 to dress down. We have raised a very impressive £340 which will buy lots of school supplies for a school in The Gambia. I will take lots of photos of me delivering the supplies to the school children and these will go on the website next session.

Thank you again,

Mrs Chiole

Football

The Burgh school football team took part in the Douglas Allan Shield tournament at Meadowmill on Monday 18th January.
The tournament was indoor 5-aside and the team played 4 matches against Pinkie, Campie, Windygoul and Longniddry. The boys had some very tough matches but showed great sportsmanship throughout! They came 3rd place in their group.  Well done.
