Secondary School Entrance Changes
From Monday 14th January our entrance on Wood Lane will be open to students only until 8:55am. Students will also leave via this entrance as usual at the end of the school day. Any students arriving after 8.55am will have to enter via the Du Cane Road entrance and register at the all-through reception, which is located in the Primary. They will then be escorted to their lessons.
All visitors, parents and guests will arrive and leave via the Du Cane Raod entrance, at all times and also check in to the all-through reception.
The all-through reception is reached by following the pavement around to the left and entering the primary building.
Black History Month Finale
Black History Month has, as ever, been a great success at Burlington Danes and this week will host a range of celebrations to mark its close.
BDA Enterprise Society has been working very hard to help organise and promote a variety of events, including: The Big Fat (Cultural) Quiz of the Year, to be held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday; Cultural Dress (Down) Day, on Friday; and our famous Cultural Gala, which will take place on Wednesday.
The quiz will focus on the theme of cultures across the world, with amazing prizes awarded to the winning teams from each year group. Entry will cost 20p per student and teams can consist of up to five people.
Cultural Dress (Down) Day encourages students to wear their national dress or the colours of their country. In support of the day, the Enterprise Team are selling various products, including badges, patches and flags. To place an order, you can either see a member of the Enterprise team, Mr Goorah (room 127) or approach your tutor. The deadline for orders is 23rd of October.
Finally, our eagerly anticipated Cultural Gala will be a wonderful evening of entertainment and cuisine from every corner of the globe. As well as offering a magnificent selection of foods to taste, there will be dance, music and cultural dress. Again, you can purchase your ticket from the Enterprise Team, Mr Goorah or your tutor.
