Junior Road Safety Officers Travel Plan

Our Junior Road Safety Officers(JRSOs) have been working together to produce a school travel plan.

The aim of this travel plan is to provide parents and pupils with green travel information and to encourage them to make sensible choices.

As part of this work the pupils joined with Mrs McMenemy and Woodfarm High to produce a video. The video can be viewed below(Glow login below).

Braidbar’s Eco Committee need your help!

As part of our mission to reduce waste we are collecting rubbish! In school we recycle our whiteboard pens and send them to a company called Terracycle who give us money for them. We are hoping that you may have some old pens or highlighters at home (or at your workplace) that we could also send away.

We have also signed up to recycle baby food packaging. We are looking for any Ella’s Kitchen style pouches and lids that we can recycle. Terracycle will collect these and turn them into new products which we believe is better than binning them.

We would also like to receive any biscuit wrappers that you may have at home. These too can be recycled!

Finally, we are hoping to create an exciting piece of Eco Art! Can you please donate any clean milk carton tops to the school so we can make a wonderful collage for our Eco wall!

Thank you for your help – Keep Recycling!

The Eco Committee.

Parent Equalities Forum

The final Parent Equalities Forum of this session will take place on Thursday 12 May in Mearns Primary School at 7pm.

This will take the form of a ‘showcase’ event with some schools presenting on the work they have been doing around equalities.

All parents are very welcome to attend.



Earlier this year, all the pupils in Primary 5-7 entered a spy themed storywriting competition.  The mission was to write an exciting story that could be made into a game by the company Polybius, who created SpyQuest.

Over 1000 pupils across the UK entered the competition and we are delighted to announce that Sarah Fulton in Primary 6 was the runner up in the competition.

David Goutcher, the creator of SpyQuest, visited the school to deliver Sarah’s prizes and to let her know that her peers would be able to play her game later in the year. He also presented her with a signed first-edition of the SpyQuest novel.

Congratulations to Sarah on her fantastic achievement.
