Team story

Hi, thanks for visiting our Broughton Primary School page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations. [p]Broughton Primary is a city centre school with a wide catchment area and a rich mix of cultures and faiths, committed to bringing the best to each of our children. [/p][p]This is the third year that the children will pull on their trainers and run with their friends, to raise money for our school. The money raised over the last 2 years has helped us buy new picnic tables and seating for the playground as well as continue the Culture Fund which supports everyone at Broughton Primary to experience Edinburgh, whether that be a trip to Dynamic Earth or climbing at Alien Rock. Every class did something cool in Edinburgh last year thanks to the money our lovely runners raised.[/p] [p]Over the last 2 years, the sense of pride and team spirit has been fantastic. In 2016 we had a  very special visit to school by Dr Andrew Murray, the Scottish Government’s physical activity advisor and marathon runner and the unforgettable sight of the Lothian Gold Open-Top Bus in the playground is something that the Broughton runners won’t forget. The EMF organisers were so impressed with the children’s efforts that we have been awarded [b]Super Active School status.[/b][/p][p] The 2017 Edinburgh Marathon Festival is going to be the best year yet for Broughton Primary runners. We’re going to have Team BPS represented in all 9 races and hopefully raise lots more money to continue to support our well loved Culture Fund in 2017/18. We want to ensure that all children get the chance to get out and about and experience all that our great city has to offer. The money will also help fund the revamping of 'Golden Time'. The staff and pupils are currently consulting about ways to adapt and improve it for everyone. We'd love to be able to support this and help buy new resources, play and sports equipment for every single class in the school. [/p] [p]The PSA is funding 18 places to take part in the junior races. For the first time this year, we’ll also have 2 children representing the nursery classes. We also have 72 children who have self-funded and are running to help raise money for the school. That’s [b]90[/b] amazing children in total running as part of Team BPS. [/p] [p]Our wider aim is to raise £25,000 to make much needed improvements to the playground. Being in the heart of a busy, and developing commun ity brings with it challenges as the school roll grows, and new classrooms have been built in the playground to accommodate the additional local children attending Broughton. Nearly four years of scaffolding while the former Broughton High School right next door is developed into flats, and essential repairs to the crumbling Victorian school building itself have made the playground dirty and restricted. The children’s school experience has suffered greatly as a result. [lt]br /[gt] [lt]br /[gt] So it's important that the space the children have access to for playing, relaxing and learning is the best it can be. Children, staff and parents are working together to bring to life an ambitious and much needed vision for a better environment for the children who attend the school, and live in the local area. [/p] [p]Please consider giving our fundraising effort a much needed boost and our wonderful children the recognition they deserve by donating to our page.[/p] [p]Thank you so much from all the children, staff, parents and carers at Broughton Primary School.[/p][lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]
