Annual House Football Tournament

On Friday 27th.September, the school held its annual House Football Tournament where the children could have a fabulous time playing football and earn points for their House.

In the end Orchil won the Junior competition and Keirallan won the Senior competition.

Well done to all the children who took part!

Thank you to Mr Lee who arranged the tournament again.

Bike Week

The children were encouraged to cycle or scooter to school this week.

For this they had the chance to win a little prize for cycling to school by finding a golden ticket on their bicycle.

Well done to everyone who took part.

 

Castle Drive Bike Ride

A big thank you to Alice and her volunteers from Bikeability Scotland who came along and arranged our cycle ride around the Castle Drive.

This was a great achievement for some of our children who were so proud that they were able to cycle the three mile distance!

Thank you to all the parents who came along and supported this event.

Braco Fun Day

We had a fabulous day in the park!

The children were able to participate in archery, play on a bouncy castle, play numerous games, do art and crafts, run a mini assault course, get their face painted and in the afternoon they were able to walk with alpacas!

For lunch we all had a lovely barbecue provided by Tayside Contracts.

 

Scottish Celebration Afternoon.

On Rabbie Burns birthday, the whole school came together to celebrate this special day.

Each class performed songs or in the case of P6/7 , taught us new Scottish words. We also had the pleasure of listening to our marvellous P7’s playing violins.

We  had our annual Scottish Poem competition. Congratulations to all the children who represented their class in the poetry competition and our overall Bobby Muir Cup winner! A BIG THANK YOU to our judges who had a very difficult decision in judging all our brilliant finalists.

Health Week

The whole school enjoyed a range of activities for our Health Week.

These included the Smoothie Bike visiting us, 5 Star Athletics, the Castle Drive Run, P7 Athletics, healthy baking and Healthy Tuck Shop.

Thank you to everyone involved and all the parents who joined us on our run.

Pedal Cinema

We had the pleasure of having the opportunity to run a Pedal Cinema.

Alice Arnott from I Bike brought along two bicycles which had to be pedalled by the children in order for them to watch short films.

As well as being fun, this did help to teach the children about the importance of sustainable energy.

Thank you to Alice!

House Football Tournamnet

On the last day of term we held our popular House Football Tournament.

All the children who entered earned points for their House.  The tournament was split into upper and lower school teams.  The rest of the children cheered on their House.

The winning team will be announced in the new term.

A big thank you to Mr Lee, who organised the tournament, and to Mr Mckenzie, who had the unenviable job of referee!
