PSA Halloween Disco
Our PSA Halloween Disco was held last Thursday in our Gym Hall!
The event was sold out! There was lots of fun to be had by all, with some amazing costumes, lots to eat and drink, and plenty of dancing!
The ticket sales alone raised £500, and with other sales on the night the final total raised towards school improvements is around £990!
What an amazing total! Thanks to the PSA for their organisation once again, and to all the parents, carers, staff and pupils who attended to make the event so successful!
Take a look below!
There was a city-wide open day on Thursday for parents of children who will start P1 next August. Mrs Rushforth gave a presentation, and there were contributions from our Pupil Council and House Captains. The House Captains also helped out during tours of the school. We received very positive feedback from our visitors, and would like to thank these 2 pupil groups for their contribution to this event! Here are some photos of the Pupil Council preparing for this, as well as the 2 groups presenting on the day.
The Pupil Council presented the things they like most about Broughton. These ideas have been collected into the graffiti wall you can see below-
The House Captains shared the things they think make Broughton unique- you can see their ideas here-
Well done to everyone involved!
We held our annual Harvest assembly this week. Once again we are very grateful for all the generous contributions towards our Harvest collection. We also need to thank our school House Captains, who came to school very early on Monday to help organise all the items donated!
All our donations have now been packed up and collected, to be distributed at our local foodback, the Broughton St Mary’s Church Foodbank. Huge thanks again to all who contributed!
Edinbugh Select Football Trials
Each year trials are held to help create the Edinburgh Select Football squad. This squad of players is made up of pupils from schools across the city of Edinburgh.
Broughton sent 3 P7 pupils to try out for the squad- Harvey Chisholm, Greig McVicar and Alex Moir.
Greig and Harvey made it through to a second trial this week, and we are delighted that Harvey has been successful in being picked for the Select squad. He should be very proud of this great achievement!
We also are proud of Greig and Alex, for taking part in what was a very high standard of competition. Well done to you boys, and commiserations to you both!
As part of the squad, Harvey will be representing Edinburgh in the Inter-Region select competitions run by the Scottish Schools FA. There will be 3 of these 7 a-side competition days throughout the academic year 2017/18.
The first competition day is Tuesday 28th November in Glasgow.
We wish Harvey the best of luck and success with the squad!
