We hope to see you there!
On Monday many of our secondary pupils attended an internet safety workshop with Firrhill High School’s community liason police officer, PC Lindsay Barr. PC Barr discussed the huge benefits of using the internet, but also the dangers that exist. All pupils were reminded about keeping safe online and encouraged to explore https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/ for more top tips, games and information.
As promised on Friday, I’ve (reluctantly!) uploaded some more pictures from Red Nose Day! The total raised was a whopping £309!
Today Braidburn School has been a sea of red! Many of our senior students arranged a fantastic morning of fancy dress, leg waxing, sponsored walks, dancing, fundraising games, gunging and an assembly full of funny faces and red noses. This followed an excellent Red Nose Day tuck shop yesteday!
The running total so far is well over £300, what a fantastic effort! More photos to come next week!
The occupational therapy team are launching a whole school dressing approach in Braidburn, which will focus on a different item each month.
This March we are focussing on jumpers.
Information is going to come home with the pupils giving ideas on how to put your jumper on and what skills to work on.
These videos can also help:
This is a demonstration of how to put your jumper on following the steps…
This is a song that can be used to help get the jumper ready to put on…
