Head Teacher's Welcome

Welcome to Braidwood School. Here at Braidwood we want everyone to be successful, to enjoy life and to learn. Success, what does it mean? It means building friendships, building character, building confidence and building that love of learning. Everyone is different, but everyone can develop, intellectually, spiritually, physically and emotionally. Together we build a passion for learning and stretching our minds. The journey of learning can be long, but it is about discovering and really understanding what learning means. I hope you will enjoy looking at our website and learning more about our school.
