Family Cycle Event

On Friday 2nd. June, parents, children and staff had a lovely time cycling around the Castle Drive. The sun kept shining, which made it even better!

Afterwards, Mrs Fridge from Nursery had organised a cake stall to raise funds for Nursery to buy balance bikes.

This event was arranged by Emily Greaves the Sport Co-ordinator for the Crieff cluster of schools. Thanks to Emily and all of those who took part in the event!

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!

St Andrew’s Mobile Planetarium

On Friday the 24th. June, 2016 the Mobile Planetarium came to the Village Hall.

All the classes, including Nursery, were able to go inside this marvellous dome and discover facts abut the constellations and about the planets in the sky at the present time.

The two volunteers from St Andrew’s had a wealth of knowledge and they held a question session at the end and they were asked some challenging questions by the chilfren.

Thank you to the volunteers from St Andrews and the Parent Council who helped to pay for this experience.

Personal Best

The children were treated to  a super performance by the Quantum Theatre Group called Personal Best.

They watched and enjoyed the show, which taught them about healthy eating. We even had a few from the audience participating in the performance!

Generation Science

The whole school was invited along to see Generation science.

We all learned about the skeleton and the different systems and organs of our bodies.

There was plenty of audience participation too!
