My story

[p] EMF weekend is a special event in the school calendar for the runners and their family and friends who join us with banners and cheer us on at Holyrood Park. The money raised has helped us buy new picnic tables and seating for the playground, revamp ‘Golden Time’ as well as continue the Cultural Fund. This allows all classes to do something cool in Edinburgh, whether that be a trip to Dynamic Earth, a visit to the Book Festival or climbing at Alien Rock. Every penny is spent in a way that enhances school life across all year groups. [/p][p]This year, we want to help the school to be able to continue the Cultural Fund and support ongoing playground improvements. [/p][p]In [b]2015[/b], 22 children took part in our first Edinburgh Marathon Festival and Team BPS was born. [b]2016[/b] saw 67 children pull on their trainers and win the ‘Super Active Schools’ award from the EMF organisers. By 2017 we had 94 children taking part and to date, our amazing runners have raised nearly [b]£9000[/b] for our school. [/p][p]Once again, we are hoping to have Team BPS represented in every race and for every class to have at least one runner respresenting them. We were one of the Top 5 schools in 2016 and 2017 and we think we can do even better this year.[/p][p]The school staff are well represented this year. Our Head Teacher is running her first ever 5k and one of our P6 teachers is running his first Half Marathon. Lots of parents have signed up too. [/p][p]This really is a team effort and we can't thank all our brilliant families and school staff enough. [/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 from all the children, staff and parents at Broughton Primary School.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
