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.
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.
The children made wonderful artwork to help decorate the Hall for the 100th Anniversary of the ending of the First World War.
Throughout the weekend the artwork was praised and commented on by a number of people in the community.
On Sunday at the War Memorial, one of our pupils read out a poem, which he had written, in front of the large crowd, who had gathered to remember the fallen.
Later on in the afternoon, children were invited to come along and play games to celebrate the ending of the War. A BIG THANK YOU to Mr Adrian Davidson who organised and ran these games. Winners received special memorial coins marking the Centenary.
Following on from this, the children took part in a candle lit parade to the Memorial and helped to remember each person, who died in the First World War , with a sparkler.
A BIG thank you to Walter Hanlon, who encouraged the children’s involvement in this special occasion.
We had a lovely Easter Service with Reverend Perkins in Ardoch Church.
Each class took turns to sing a song about Spring or Easter. There were also readings on the Easter story and an acting out of this too.
There were also wonderful violin and guitar performances by some of the children. Thank you to Mrs Chalamanda and Mr Bulley who arranged this.
At the end there was the Easter Bonnet and Baking Competition. Congratulations to our winners and to al the children who took part in this!
On Friday, 3rd. November, Robyn Warburton and Dr Bike from Comrie Croft came to Braco Primary to promote cycling to school.
Everyone was invited to come along, if they wished, to a Breakfast run by Sustrans. Children were also offered the chance to have their bike checked over by Dr Bike.
In class Robyn held a short Get Together about her work and how she wants the children to be more interested in promoting cycling, walking even riding scooters to school. She will be returning again to help run another event.
Thanks to Robyn and the Comrie Crew for arranging this for the school.
On our final day of this term, the whole school attended a service in the church to celebrate Harvest.
Reverend Perkins led the service and she was joined by all the classes singing songs, doing readings and poems.
Mrs Dawson thanked everyone for coming and for donating food to the Food Bank in Stirling (Start Up Stirling).
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!
