P3 Corey Whiteford was chauffeur driven to school with his friends and brother on Thursday 23rd May. Later George Bowie attended a whole school assembly and answered the children's questions about radio and DJ.
As it stands staff are making their way into school and the school is currently open. Obviously if the weather deteriorates we will reassess this later today.
The School is open as normal after the adverse weather encountered on Monday.
The school will be closed today Monday 11th March 2013 due to adverse weather conditions. It will re-open on Tuesday as normal.
Braidwood Primary pupils have achieved medals and recognition at different competitive events in recent weeks.
At the recent Law and District Cross Country Event at Moor Park. Ruth, Nathan and Jemma did really well. Ruth took 1st for P7 Girls, Jemma was 2nd, and Nathan was 3rd for P5 boys.
