Angus Alive Summer Activity Programme 2017

Angus Alive Summer Activity Programme 2017.

Helping your little animals to keep healthy, active and creative this holiday season, we have a huge variety of activities from holiday camps to crafts, outdoor activities and reading challenges to help entertain and inspire the minds of the little people in your lives.

Our sports activities include camps for athletics, a Scottish Football Association programme and a general holiday theme where sports include golf and an obstacle course – or why not get your little monkeys on the 2-day climbing wall course. Craft activities offer anything from 3D printing to an Animal Agents Lego play and a drawing class with a local artist. There’s even a family show at The Webster Memorial Theatre, ‘Goldilocks and The Three Bears’ – fun for all the family! Or why not put leaves on your family tree and book a session at Angus Archives. Whether your little fish wants to swim, your frog wants to leap in gymnastics, your hound wants to be a secret agent or your rhino wants to TRY rugby, with prices starting from £2.60 per activity.

Burnside Sporting Round Up

The netball team had the opportunity to play at Carlogie Primary School for their latest tournament.  The girls have been coming to netball practice every week and have continued to show GRIT.  The girls were much more confident at the match and this showed in their performance.  They were delighted, as was Miss Fairweather, when they played well together and won some points.  The team are continuing to develop and practise their skills and some primary 6 girls have also started to come along which will help the team learn together.  We are looking forward to the next tournament already.

Well done girls, go Burnside Netball Team!

Our school football team competed recently in the Carnoustie cluster inter-schools football tournament. The Burnside team performed extremely well, showing GRIT and determination in all of their matches against some tough opposition. Burnside finished 2nd on the day behind a consistent Grange team. The boys were a credit to the school and showed excellent sportsmanship throughout. We are now training hard in preparation for our next challenge in May.

Burnside Athletics Team have had a very successful Winter Season in the Fun in Athletics competitions.  In November we took part in the Carnoustie Cluster heat at the Beach Hall where we cam first!  We then attended the Angus Final in Forfar and again performed exceptionally well earning us joint first place with Whitehills Primary School.  The Regional Finals followed in February where we managed to finish 6th.  The team are all to be congratulated on their hard work and commitment, they worked extremely well as a team and certainly put our school aims into practice.  Well done all on a fantastic effort.
