Message from Mrs Rooney, Head Teacher:
“We are outraged by the damage to our pitch; it is an excellent resource which is well used by both our pupils and the wider community. The damage was significant with several burns on the pitch including a large area at the centre circle; and a goal net was also destroyed. It is so disappointing to see it being damaged through such mindless vandalism. The extent of which means that we have had to cancel football games planned for this week. I would urge anyone with information to contact the police as a matter of urgency.”
The science department hosted their annual transition event for the school’s associated primary seven classes on Friday 22nd November. Upon arrival at Braidhurst, primary pupils and staff were escorted into the assembly hall where they participated in a series of fun and informative science experiments and were ably supported throughout by our senior pupils.
The school’s North Lanarkshire Open and S1 Netball teams both achieved great victories on Thursday 21st November in their matches against Dalziel High School.

The council’s ‘Read to Succeed’ initiative recently organised a fantastic book-gifting event for all S1 pupils. Glowworm Books visited the school on Friday 15th November and all first year pupils were invited to the library to choose their own free book from a list of selected titles, including ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’, novels by Jacqueline Wilson and Cathy Macphail. Pupils were impressed by the variety of choice on offer and are now patiently waiting on their book being delivered to school.
On Friday 15th November, the school hosted an afternoon of inter-house events for pupils to enjoy and hopefully earn points for their house group. Activities on offer included: Minute to Win It, table tennis, a bake off, computer games, domino challenge, music quiz, dodge ball, and football. All pupils thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon.
The Hub held the annual ‘Pancakes for Pudsey’ event on Thursday 14th November.
