Pro Judo- JUDO CLUB.

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

Time:               3:45-4:30pm              

Cost:                £4 for the trial block for 4 weeks. 

You can email: bookings-eastren@projudo.co.uk

Or  Book via link:   https://projudo.class4kids.co.uk/term/20/East+Renfrewshire+After+School

If your child is interested in attending please book on by clicking on the appropriate link above or email: bookings-eastren@projudo.co.uk to get the link. Please book the trial offer. This is only £1 per week for the 4 week trial.

World Book Day – Thursday 1st March

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!

P5 Enterprise Event

Dear Parent/Carer,

 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.

 Yours faithfully,

Primary 5

Thank You from The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice

I just wanted to say a massive thanks to you, your teachers and pupils that came along to the St Enoch’s Centre last week to sing Christmas Carols in support of The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice.

As you know the hospice needs to raise £3.1million each year towards our £5million annual operations costs and we couldn’t do it without the support of you and your young people.

All schools that attended were fantastic and we cannot wait to let you know what was raised. We should have figure soon and I will send this onto along with a certificate that can be displayed for the children.

Thank you once again and enjoy the festive season.

Kind regards Caroline
