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!

Celebration and Achievement Evening and YE HA Show!

P3-7 put on a spectacular Western show called YE HA!

There was fantastic singing by everyone and also great solos too.

We had gun fights, devious mayors and hero cooks!

This was all followed by our Celebration and Achievement Evening .

Well done to everyone who took part (even P1/2 for extra singing voices) and to everyone who won awards on the night!

 

 

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.

 

Braco’s Got Talent

The show that everyone looks forward to every year, did not disappoint !

This year we had a mixture of singing, dancing, playing of musical instruments, magic, pogo/unicycle riding and impersonations!

Well done to our winners and everyone who took part. 

A big thank you to our judges(Prefects from Strathearn  Campus) and Miss Barnes and Mrs Fridge who helped to organise the event!

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.

Armistice Centenary

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.

 

Easter Fair

After the Easter Service parents and children attended an Easter Fair in the Village Hall.

There, everyone could buy different crafts the children had made and other crafts for sale.There were also a lot of toys and books for sale too! Parents and grandparents were treated to teas/ coffee and home baking. An amazing £422 was raised which will go towards our school trip to St Andrews!

Thank you to everyone who donated books, toys and baking and to everyone who helped on the day. Also a big thank you to Mrs Geddes who gave a donation of her earnings from the fair too.
