Games at the Hub 2017

Games at the Hub


A team of P6 pupils attended Games at the Hub, a sports event held at Forrester High School.

We sent 3 teams- swimming, rugby and volleyball- and what a successful day we had!

Our swimming and rugby teams both won their tournaments, and our volleyball team were only 1 point from winning theirs!

We’ll need to invest in a trophy cabinet at Broughton, as we came back to school with 2 great shiny trophies! A huge well done to all the pupils, for great effort and behaviour on the day! Some photos of the event can be seen below. We are so proud!

At last, the Edinburgh Marathon Festival Weekend is here!

We’d like to wish all our pupils who are running the very best of luck tomorrow, as well as Mr Horan from P5b who is running too!

We have a video of good luck messages to share, which we hope you enjoy watching. Also, a group photo was taken last week of our 94 runners!

Let’s hope all our runners get nice weather, and plenty support tomorrow. The EMF Newsletter is attached again below, with all the info you need about our BPS team’s training, fundraising details, and how you can come and support us on the day!

Health Week 2017

Next week is our annual Health Week at Broughton. A range of different health and wellbeing activites have been planned by our staff Health and Wellbeing group, and we are all looking forward to it very much!

Letters have been distributed to promote the week already, so we look forward to kicking off our week with a special Whole School assembly on Monday. Remember, we’re encouraging all pupils (and staff too) to wear sports clothing all week so we can all be ready to go for any one of the fun sporting activities that may be planned that day! Just remember, no football tops please! Remember also that our Sports Day is on Tuesday, weather permitting, at Botanical Broughton.

Miss Clark has made this cool poster to promote Health Week 2017!
