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.

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.

Sports Day

We had a great day for Sports Day!

The children were divided into their Houses. First they all took part in a circuit of different activities, where they were winning points for their House.

Next of all each class took part in a running race, a potato and spoon  race and a sack race.  At the end there was a House Relay race. All points will go towards the House Cup which the children will find the result of at our Celebration and Achievement Evening.

Thank you to everyone who helped out  and supported the day.

Hope you enjoy the photos!

 

Ski Week

Last week ten children from P5-7  went on a fantastic trip to Nethy Bridge, where they enjoyed a week of skiing and other outdoor activities.

They were joined there by nine children from Muthill Primary who they got to know very well.

Most days the children got a chance to ski either on the dry slope or on snow.  If the children were not skiing, they were taking part in outdoor problem solving activities, zip wiring, a mini assault course and daily swimming.

A big thank you to Mrs Bickerton, who was our parent helper and who faced the most challenging skiing.  A big thank you also to the wonderful staff of Abernethy who made this trip so enjoyable! Last but not least, the fantastic children of Braco who were keen to take part in all activities and who were wonderfully behaved!

Sport Races

Today was a beautiful Summer’s day, so the whole school headed over to the park to do our races, which were not able to be done on Sports Day!

Each class took part in a running race, a potato and spoon  race and a sack race.  At the end there was a House Relay race. Hope you enjoy the photos!

Cycling

All the children of the school were invited to bring along their bicycles and ride along an assault course! As the children got older, they were expected to do more challenging manoeuvres!

Everyone had a fabulous day!

Thank you to Emily Greaves who organised this event!

Liam Davie comes to Braco!!

Today we were joined by British Gymnast- Liam Davie! Liam won a Silver Medal at the Commonwealth Games in 2014 and is hoping to do the same in 2018.

First of all the whole school took part in a fitness circuit….even the teachers!

After this Liam told us all about his life and what it takes to be a gymnast.

Liam let the children ask him questions and he was impressed by the questions.

His final piece was to show us two backwards somersaults!!

The children who raised money got a poster or postcard or a picture with Liam!

It was a fantastic morning and over £700 was raised by the children.

Liam commented on how Braco was the best school he had visited around Scotland!

The children from P4-6, who recently went on the annual ski trip to Aviemore, received their certificates from Mrs Dawson.

Each certificate had their ski level recorded on it.

Well done to all the children who took part on this trip.
