Fantastic trial Offer for all pupils
Schools have recently received some Judo taster sessions from Pro Judo Head Coach, Brian Long. The idea of taster sessions within schools is to give children an opportunity to experience a new sports/activity that they may have not participated in locally. The children really enjoyed the judo session and were enthusiastic about the prospect of joining a judo club in East Renfrewshire. Pro Judo has been established since 2006, with 19 clubs across the West of Scotland it is the largest judo provider in Schools. All coaches are fully qualified and the organisation has a pathway in place to progress children from grass roots to performance athletes.
After the recent taster sessions in schools and enjoyment of the children, Pro Judo are looking to offer pupils the chance to take part in a 4 week trial offer of Judo at one of their classes.
There are a number of clubs running across East Renfrewshire. The closest classes to your school are below.
Venue: The Maccabi Youth and Sports Centre, Giffnock
Cost: £4 for the trial block for 4 weeks.
You can email: email@example.com
Or Book via link: https://projudo.class4kids.co.uk/term/20/East+Renfrewshire+After+School

World Book Day 2018
With World Book Day fast approaching, we wanted to let you know about how we plan to celebrate it this year!
Amongst the whole school activities that we will be doing on Friday 2nd March, the Parent Council have also organised a very exciting event………………………
Braidbar Parent Council are planning a Book Swap to celebrate World Book Day. We ask that on Thursday 1st March pupils bring in a book they are happy to swap. On Friday 2nd March they will have an opportunity to choose a new book to take home. Please note that children may donate more than one book but each pupil will only be allowed to take one book home. Left over books will be offered to the school for the library or classrooms (any extra will be donated to local charity shops).
We look forward to celebrating books and reading with you!
Our February 2018 Newsletter has been emailed out to all Parents and Carers today. This can also be accessed under our Newsletter section on the website.
Primary 5 have been studying Enterprise in Social Studies. We have carried out market research to investigate the best product for sale to maximise profits.
Our research has revealed that sweets were the most popular product. As a result, we have produced Sweet Cones. All the sweets are gelatine free and suitable for a vegetarian diet.
We have taken out a business loan from Miss Cumming and have to repay this in full. Any profit made in this venture will be donated to charity. Primary 5 pupils have voted for the SSPCA.
Sweet Cones will be available for sale from Monday 11th December for £1. We hope you will support our project.
