Creative Industries Exhibition 2022

On Wed 20th and Thu 21st Apr 2022 our S4 creative industries class organised and ran a celebrating success event for the Primary 7 pupils of our feeder primary schools. All displays were designed by the creative industries students as part of their qualification. The class collated examples of pupil work from each faculty within Braidhurst and also arranged for a subject ambassador to speak to the P7’s and answer any questions they had.

Children in Need

As usual our fantastic nurture unit pulled out all the stops when celebrating this year’s Children in Need with a bake sale and sweep stake. Mrs Currie and the pupils of the ‘hub’ organised and hosted a bake sale on Thursday 18th November whilst a sweep stake amongst staff was won by Ms Young. In total over £200 was raised with all money going towards the fantastic charities that Children in Need represents. Well done to everyone who helped raise money for a very worthy cause.

Active Girls Day

Recently, our young Sports Ambassadors organised an Active Girls Day filled with activities, such as football, netball, volleyball and sessions in our fitness suite, to enable our pupils to develop and strengthen skills.  Thank you to our ambassadors for putting together an action-packed and fun-filled day which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.


It was a very different BGE Graduation this year however the school were determined to honour our S3 pupils by celebrating their completion of the ‘Broad General Education’ phase of the Curriculum for Excellence. Each pupil was invited to the assembly hall with their house group and were gifted a new senior tie which they will wear as they begin the Senior Phase of their education in fourth year. Congratulations to all of our pupils and we wish them all the best as they begin S4 in the next school session.


Despite the Covid-19 pandemic curtailing many of the normal inter-house events in the school, the senior house captains and prefects ran a pumpkin carving competition for their fellow S5 and S6 pupils on Friday 30th October. The event followed all social distancing and enhanced hygiene guidelines but also delivered a much-needed injection of fun into the school’s Halloween celebrations. Many of the pumpkins modelled fantastically spooky designs but in the end it was Lorne house who grabbed first place in both the fifth year and sixth year competition.
