Hello everyone, and a happy Tuesday to you all!
We hope you are having a good day, and a special thought for our P7s, who we hope are enjoying your virtual 3-day visits!
Just a short update today, so let’s go.
First, we’re delighted to announce that Mrs Clark from P1, and Mr Rogerson from P4 have planned a Virtual ‘Broughton’s Got Talent’ event for next week. Please see the letter below for information about this exciting event!
We also want to take some time to mention our planned visit to Lagganlia, which we have sadly had to cancel. We realise that this has been upsetting for our P6 children who were so looking forward to it! We are upset too, so we want to make it clear that this decision has been made by the City of Edinburgh Council, and while we are sad about it, we understand why it can’t go ahead. While we will have social distancing in place, and pupils attending school in small groups, we can’t take around 50 pupils in a coach to a residential trip where they would need to share dorms and bathroom space in close contact with each other. We will keep parents up to date with information on refunds, and any plans to offer a different kind of outdoor experience next session when we have them.
Finally, Broughton Primary staff will be attending the Hub school at Drummond tomorrow. It’s our last time at the Hub before the summer break, so it’ll be lovely to catch up with our Broughton pupils and all the other key worker children we’ve got to know a little bit from other schools.
That’s all for today’s brief update folks! Enjoy the rest of your day, and as always, stay safe!
Mrs Venn, Mr Borthwick, Miss Bradley and Mrs Gowans
