On the last day of term we held our popular House Football Tournament.
All the children who entered earned points for their House. The tournament was split into upper and lower school teams. The rest of the children cheered on their House.
The winning team will be announced in the new term.
A big thank you to Mr Lee, who organised the tournament, and to Mr Mckenzie, who had the unenviable job of referee!
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.
Today all the children were put into their houses.
After we had done this, there was a whole school Dance Off, where the children won points from the teachers, for their houses, by dancing with super moves!
All houses earned a lot of points, but the winners were Allandale.
Congratulations to all children who earned points for their Houses and especially to those children, who danced even though it is not their favourite thing to do!
We were joined by Robyn from I Bike who arranged a super morning of activities for the children.
The children from P1-7 went around three stations. Here they learned how to repair a puncture, name the parts of the bike and how to make a delicious smoothie by cycling a bike!
Thanks Robyn for a super morning and thank you Bike Crew for helping at the stations!
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!
We were not let down again this year with the talent in Braco Primary School!
Children from P1 to P7 sang, dance, played musical instruments and even told jokes!
Congratulations to everyone who took part and to our winners. Also a big thank you to Reverend Perkins who had the unenviable job of being the judge!
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!
On Friday 26 th. January the whole school came together for a Scottish celebration afternoon.
Three winners from each class recited their Scottish poem in front of the whole school, Mums and Dads and grandparents. After these recitals, there was one winner from each class chosen by our judges, The Head Boy and Girl from Crieff High School.
While their decision was being made, the children sang Scottish songs, played Scottish music on violins and guitars. Parents were invited to make a small donation for shortbread and scones, made by the P7’s, for funds for their P7 trip later on in the year.
Congratulations to everyone who took part, our class winners and the overall winner of the Bobby Muir Cup!
A big thank you to our judges, Mrs Chalamanda and everyone who attended.
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.
