Welcome Back

It was lovely to see all of our pupils back in school yesterday so fresh and eager to go! We hope that you all enjoyed your summer holidays and that you are looking forward to a new year in Braidburn School.

John Byrne Award

This year, our S6 class entered the prestigious John Byrne Award. The competition is quite a challenge but encourages students to think about their own values. It then asks these young adults to express those values through a painting, a poem, a play – or any other creative output of their choosing. Young people in the Almond Class chose to express themselves through a fantastic poem which you can watch below.
