Harvest Service and the Macmillan Coffee Morning.

On the last day of term, all the children in the school performed a song, a poem or a talk about Harvest time.

Parents came along and thoroughly enjoyed this.

After the service we had our Macmillan Coffee Morning, where older children helped to serve delicious home baking contributed by pupils and parents.

Thank you very much to everyone who came along and to those who contributed home baking.

£279 was raised for such a worthwhile and important charity. Well done everyone!

Our Harvest Service

We held our end of term service in the Village Hall yesterday and this was followed by The Macmillan Coffee Morning.

Parents and Grandparents were entertained as each class from Nursery to P7, sang songs with a Harvest/Autumn theme. P7 did readings and Rev Perkins joined us as well to talk about this special time of the year.

Thank you to everyone who joined us and contributed baking. Thank you to all parents as well who contributed money for their children to have cake and juice.

Race for Life

Thank you to everyone who ran and donated to our Race for Life run around the Castle Drive. For the little ones this was especially a big achievement.

The money raised was over £600 for Cancer Research!

Thank you to all who donated and to Mrs Gillies’s daughter Kirsty who warmed us up at the beginning. A big thank you to Mrs Ross who organised it all!

 

 

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!

Braco Pyjama Walk for Sports Relief

UPDATE- We raised £774.45 through sponsorship money.  A P1 child also raised a further £50 through his Gift Page. Also the people who ticked the Gift Aid box on the sponsor form, will enable Sports Relief to claim another £98 from the Government. A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone involved!

On Friday the 18th March, the whole school walked around the Castle Drive in their pyjamas.

On  return they got warm with a well deserved hot drink!

Thank you to all the people who sponsored the children to do this for such a worthy cause.

The amount raised will be put on the website when all the money is in.

Thank you to the Health Committee who arranged this.
