It was a full house at Cambuslang Rugby club last Friday for the Burnside Parent Council’s first social event of the year – The Quiz Night.   The quiz was hosted by River City’s Big Bob, actor Tom Urie, who also entertained the crowd with some songs at the end of the night.

Congratulations to Burnside Primary School’s staff team including Mrs McGarvey, Mrs McGovern and Mrs Anderson (and partners) who won the quiz.

What a clever bunch we have educating our children!
