Once again the Pupil Equity Fund team, led by Ms McKenna, galvanised the school community to bring in donations of non-perishable food items, toiletries and gifts, which were then distributed in our local community. School staff and pupils were incredibly generous with their donations which allowed the PEF elves to organise a wealth of Christmas boxes filled with lots of goodies. Thank you to the entire school community for their continued generosity which once again proved that Braidhurst may be a small school but it has a big heart.
Thank you to all the staff who decorated their doors and donated towards our Malawi project.
Each door was scored on creativity, effort, presentation and ‘extras’ by a group of top S6 judges and the best 5 doors were : –
1. Mr Campbell – WINNER (69 points)
2. Pupil Support (67 points)
3. Ms Logan (66 points)
4. Mrs Macdonald (64 points)
5. Ms Watson (63 points)
Congratulations to Mr Campbell on the win!
S6 pupil Cameron May was crowned the overall 18 and under piping champion at the recent Scottish Pipers’ Association online juvenile completion. The event took place via video submission and organisers commented on the very high standard of piping that was on display, especially in the under-18 category. A huge well done Cameron from all at Braidhurst.
S4 pupil Craig Young was the winner of Dress Code HQs recent Halloween coding competition. Craig took part in the S4 category and was awarded a Raspberry Pi keyboard and mouse for coming first place. Well done Craig – the school are delighted for you.
Our Art department has been working on a project with S1 pupils to develop their visual art skills through producing sgraffito or scraper work. The designs are now on display in the school foyer and have attracted much praise and compliments.
