Summer Term 2017

Open Day

Following on from an exciting inter-House Athletics competition, Open Day progressed to the Chapel where parents listened to speeches from this term's Guardians, Alice T and Will C, Chair of the Governors, Eve Poole, outgoing Principal, Simon Reid, Principal Lisa Kerr and Headmaster, Titus Edge, before heading outside into the sun for drinks and music from the Gordonstoun Pipe Band. Those parents with an interest in cricket were able to wander over to the North Lawn where a match between the Boys U18 XI and the Headmaster's XI was in progress.

After lunch in the Refectory it was up to Ogstoun Theatre to watch music, drama and dance performances then back down to the Sports Centre where senior students were staging their Services Presentation, after which the head of the Scottish Fire Service for the Grampian Region awarded the Year 13 members of the Fire Service with their medals and presented Jack J with the annual James Lythgoe Memorial Prize for his outstanding contribution to the Gordonstoun Fire Service.

After tea outside the Services Centre, parents and students were free to leave for the long Leave-Out Weekend. Year 13 students, however, had just a short couple of hours back in their Houses to prepare themselves for the upcoming Leavers Ball. After enjoying welcome drinks and canapes with their parents in Houses, everyone headed to the South Lawn and the Refectory for diinner, followed by after-dinner drinks in the Principal's garden for parents and, for the students, dancing and partying in the marquee into the wee small hours. All in all, a very fitting end to everyone's time at Gordonstoun.
