We’ve reached the end of another busy session at Broughton Primary School! It’s been such a productive time, with lots of success to celebrate and quality learning experiences for all our pupils!
It’s at this time of year we say goodbye to our P7 pupils- we’d like to wish them all the very best of luck and happiness for their future as they move on to secondary school! We like to make a special fuss of P7 in their final week to give them a good send off, and here are some pictures of some of these memory making events!
Unfortunately, the weather put paid to our plan to have our P7 BBQ at Botanical Broughton. We didn’t let that dampen our spirits though, and held the event in our Gym Hall instead. The hall was decorated for P7, and there were games, dancing and singing from everyone. Everyone seemed to have a good time!
Last Day of Term
P7 spent the first part of the day with the traditional signing of their P7 hoodies and jumpers. This also allows them to say goodbye to their younger peers, as well as giving them a special keepsake of their time at Broughton!
We held a special leavers assembly in our Gym to say goodbye and good luck to our P7s as a school. It can be a very emotional time for the pupils, as they are presented with their leaving gifts and a Yearbook. Each of the P7s have a chance to get an individual round of applause to send them to high school with the best wishes of the school!
Our House Captains announce our final House Point totals for the year at the last Assembly. The final totals were the highest ever, with McDonald being crowned House Winners, but it was very close- they only won by 15 points! Final totals below-
1st McDonald 14 363 points
2nd Trinity 14 348 points
3rd Pilrig 14 208 points
4th Drummond 14 105 points
Well done McDonald!
The final celebration of the day was when the P7 pupils were piped out of the school. All the classes lined the stairs to clap as P7 left the school, accompanied by Louise, the fantastic piper.
We hope you had a memorable last day P7, and have happy memories of your time at Broughton- all the best for the future!
We also have some staff to say goodbye to. Moving on to pastures new are Ms Ferguson, Ms Wagstaff, Mrs Thomson and Ms McGilvary. We’d like to thank them for all their hard work and support, for all they have contributed to our school, and wish them all the very best for the future!
We welcome Ms Vacher to our school next session, as our new Acting Depute Head Teacher. Also, Mrs Rabbi and Ms Kobus will be joining our PSA team. Also joining us will be 3 newly qualified teachers, Ms Cunnigham, Ms Notarangelo and Ms Ioannou. We look forward to working with you all, and wish you a happy time at Broughton!
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their contributions to our school this year. All our pupils, staff, parents and carers, have a very happy, healthy, safe and restful summer break! Let’s hope the sun shines, and we’ll see you again on Wednesday 16th August!
