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.
