As another session draws to a close, for our final post of the year we’d like to focus on transition, and those pupils and staff who are moving on from the Broughton Primary community.
Yesterday was the last day of primary school for our P7 pupils! An emotional day began with P7 visiting the other classes in school for the traditional signing of their P7 jumpers and shirts.
After break we held our P7 Leavers Assembly in our Gym Hall. Each of the P7s were presented with a gift from school and their P7 Yearbook they created together with their class teachers, Miss Stewart and Ms Ziemons. They also reprised a song from their P7 Show for everyone and house captains helped to announce the final House Points totals of the year.
Our P7 House Captains carried out their final duty in announcing the final totals for our House Points. Here are the totals-
1st Pilrig 18 769 points
2nd McDonald 17 702 points
3rd Drummond 17 045 points
4th Trinity 16 966 points
Well done to everyone for earning so many house points over the year, and special congratulations to Pilrig, who win the House Shield for the first time! They were the only House yet to win, so it’s nice to see them finally see their name on the shield!
After Assembly, P7 were dismissed in style, as they were piped out of the school by Louise! All the other classes lined the stairs and corridor to clap and cheer as P7 left!
From everyone at Broughton, we’d like to wish our P7s the very best of luck for starting S1 after the holidays. Thank you for being such fantastic ambassadors for our school, and such a good example to others! We’ll miss you so much, but we know you’ll keep reaching for the stars!
We’d also like to extend our best wishes to any other children in school who are moving to new schools after the summer! Good luck to all!
As well as our P7 leavers, we also said farewell to some of our lovely staff members too.
Moving on to new adventures from our support staff team are Miss Rodriguez, Miss Korecka, Miss Hunter and Miss McCleary. From our teaching staff we say goodbye to Miss McIntosh, Ms Ziemons and Miss Duck, with a special adieu to Mrs Tweedie, who is retiring after 18 years at Broughton! We’d like to wish them all good luck and happiness in the next stages of their lives, and thank them all for their dedication, hard work and commitment to making a difference to the lives of the members of our Broughton community!
Finally, we’d like to wish everyone a happy, sunny, healthy summer holiday! Let’s all enjoy a well deserved break! We look forward to seeing everyone when school reopens for the pupils on Wednesday 14th August.
Happy holidays everyone!
