Dress Down Friday

Friday 4 November 2016 is Dress Down Friday at Burnside Primary School. For the privilege of no school uniform being worn that day you are asked to provide your child with a ‘chocolate’ donation, to be brought on the day, which will be used for the Parent Council’s Christmas Fayre’s Chocolate Tombola.
Many thanks

Oor Wullie Bucket Trail

Oor Wullie’s Bucket Trail is a major public arts event that will see the streets of Dundee and beyond come to life with a spectacle of colour of 50 giant Oor Wullie sculptures in summer 2016. The project, a collaboration between The ARCHIE Foundation, DC Thomson and Wild in Art will capture the hearts and minds of the public and encourage us all to become ‘tourists in our own City’ and attract visitors from all over. The Oor Wullie sculptures will be beautifully decorated by local and national artists as well as household names from the worlds of film, music, art, animation and fashion. From small local companies to national corporations, a whole host of businesses and individuals will have the unique opportunity to sponsor a sculpture that will then be on show for 10 weeks before taking the sculptures to auction to help raise funds for The ARCHIE Foundation’s Tayside Appeal to create a twin theatre suite for the children’s hospital.  Read more about the trail at Oor Wullie Bucket Trail
