Carrying a torch

BURNSIDE Primary School pupils were delighted to welcome an Olympic torch to the school on Tuesday.

Every child got to hold the torch and in the afternoon Andy Coogan, who had carried the torch through Dundee, came along to speak to the children and staff and brought his torch with him.

It was an amazing experience for all the children and staff and a very moving and emotional afternoon for many.

Mrs Dawn Hendry, headteacher, thanked Mr Coogan for sharing his many stories and also thanked Mrs Bartell for allowing everyone to see and handle the torch in the morning.
