Our last day of term was an eventful and emotional one, especially for our P7 leavers! They visited all the classes for the traditional signing of their P7 jumpers, and we held a special leavers assembly for them.

Our school choir performed, and then all our P7s were presented with a Yearbook, dictionary/thesaurus set, and beautiful, individually inscribed commemorative spoons, made by Mr Clark, Harper in P5’s grandfather. We are so grateful to him for making them!

Mrs O’Rourke thanked our P7s for their hard work over the years, and also for being such a good example to others, and great ambassadors for our school.

Our P7 House Captains performed their last task of the year by announcing the final House Points totals. As follows-

1st     McDonald     11 851 points

2nd     Pilrig     11 551 points

3rd     Trinity     11 468 points

4th     Drummond     10 962 points 

Well done to McDonald house!


P7 sang ‘You Give A Little Love’ from their leavers show, and just before the bell, they were led out of school by Louise, the piper. All the other classes came out to applaud them as they made their way through the school, and they were met by parents and carers in the playground.

We would like to wish our P7 leavers the very best of luck and happiness for the future! We hope we gave you a worthy send off!

We also said farewell to a number of staff: Mrs Clark,Miss McEwan and Mrs Murphy who are moving on to new schools. Also Miss Gilhooly and Mrs Higham, who are leaving Broughton for a while but will be returning.

We also must say farewell to Mrs Hutchison, one of our Support for Learning teachers, who is retiring after 15 years at Broughton.

We wish them all well and will be sorry to see them leave.

We would like to thank all staff, pupils, parents and carers for their continued hard work, dedication and support this year!

Let’s hope we all have a happy, restful and sunny summer holiday!

See you again in August!
