My story

[p]EMF weekend is a special event in Broughton Primary's school calendar for the runners and their family and friends who join us with banners and cheer us on at Holyrood Park. Since 2015, the money raised has helped us buy new picnic tables and seating for the playground, as well as continue our successful [b]Cultural Fund[/b]. 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. [/p][p]This year, we want to help the school to be able to [b]continue the Cultural Fund[/b] so that everyone can enjoy our city and the great experiences it has to offer. With one in four of our families living in poverty, this is more important than ever. We are committed to ensuring opportunities are open to all and every penny is spent in a way that enhances school life across all year groups.[/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. In 2018 and 2019 we had over [b]100 children[/b] taking part and to date, our amazing runners have raised over [b]£8000[/b] for our school.[/p][p]Once again, we are hoping to have Team BPS running in every race and for every class to have at least one runner representing them. We have been one of the Top 5 schools in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 and we think we can do even better this year.[/p][p]The school staff are well represented this year too with our Head Teacher, Depute and Principal Teacher all taking part. 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. You can also follow us on Twitter @bpsrunners[/p][p]Thank you from all the children, staff and parents at Broughton Primary School - #gobroughton[/p]
