Safety in the Park

The Primary 7 pupils travelled to Arthurlie House on Monday to participate in the annual ‘Safety in the Park’ event.

The afternoon was a great success, with the pupils learning about the importance of a healthy diet, internet safety and substance misuse.

When writing about the event back in class, Joshua in P7b commented, “Sadly the day had to come to an end. We got on the bus and went back to school. The day was much better than I thought!”



Welcome Back

All the children (and staff!) are delighted to be back at School and Nursery to begin our new 2015/16 session. We would especially like to welcome all our new Primary 1 children who are settling in well and working hard for Miss Pope and all of our new children in the Nursery. 

It was great to see everyone arriving on the first day looking ready for action and extremely smart in their full uniforms. We would like to thank all our parents for your continuing support.  Here’s to a great school year ahead!

Visitors From Down Under

Today’s assembly was extra special as we welcomed the Bell family all the way from Melbourne, Australia. Susan Bell is a former pupil at Braidbar, who attended the school  back in 1985, before moving to Australia for a life in the sun.

Susan was joined by her three children – Johnny, Katy and Emily, who told us all about their school in Melbourne and the sports they played.

It was great to welcome the family to the school and we hope they enjoy the rest of their time here in Scotland.



S1 Woodfarm Pupils lead the way in Sport!

Pupils in P4 from Braidbar and Thornliebank primary participated in a fun sports festival held at Woodfarm High School yesterday. Marie Baxter- Active School Coordinator- trained up 20 S1 pupils to be Young Leaders and as part of the course they had to organise and lead a festival. The S1 pupils delivered the activities with help from Marie Baxter, P.E staff and Sports coaches. The Primary 4 pupils were all split into Commonwealth countries and participated in Athletics, Basketball, Dodgeball, Football and dance. The winning team were Jamaica who will be getting a special treat next week. Well done to the S1 pupils who have successfully passed their leadership course and to all the P4 pupils who attended and participated in all the fun sporting activities.


Sports Day Success!

On Friday, in the beautiful sunshine, Braidbar made their way to Muirend Pavillion for the annual Sports Day.

Cheered on by a supportive crowd of family and friends, each pupil rose to the challenge and competed in the spirit of fun and friendship.

The afternoon ended with a House Relay which saw Stevenson win and take home the Sports Day Trophy.

A massive thank you to Mr Gordon and Mrs Baxter for their hard work and congratulations to all involved. We look forward to seeing you all again at Sports Day 2016!

Tonight’s The Night!

We are all very excited about tonight and the chance to share our production with an audience.

The doors will open at 7pm.

Programmes, designed by P6b, will be available on the night. There is a suggested donation of 50p per programme.

We look forward to seeing you tonight.


Silence is Goldon

Last term, the Primary 6 pupils participated in a sponsored silence to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Trust.  The pupils remained tight-lipped for one and a half hours and managed to raise £647.64!!

Now the silence is over and we want to SHOUT about their achievement. In fact their work was so impressive that even the local paper wanted to SHOUT about it too!

Congratulations Primary 6!
