Fund­ing boost for Burn­side on­line learn­ing

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Burn­side Pri­mary landed a boost re­cently.

Thanks to fund­ing se­cured by the school’s par­ent coun­cil, they will con­tinue to fund their Ed­u­ca­tion City on­line com­puter learn­ing pro­gramme.

It has been run­ning for sev­eral years now at Burn­side Pri­mary and has proved ex­tremely pop­u­lar with pupils, staff and par­ents.

Events like the re­cent Christ­mas fair helped raise enough cash to ex­tend the pro­gramme.

The school now has ac­cess to the French mod­ule al­low­ing chil­dren from P1 to P7 to en­hance their French learn­ing as part of the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment’s 1&2 Lan­guage Strat­egy.

Gary Camp­bell, act­ing de­pute head teacher says: “I would like to pass on my thanks on be­half of the school for the sup­port to con­tinue us­ing Ed­u­ca­tion City.

“The fact we will now be able to ac­cess two fur­ther mod­ules for free is ex­cel­lent and will fully ben­e­fit the chil­dren.”
