News from the Junior School - Week Two
The Highland Military Tattoo
On Thursday evening, the boarders were treated to a fantastic evening out when they travelled to Fort George to watch the Gordonstoun Pipe Band perform in the Highland Military Tattoo. It was a spectacular event with the Junior School represented by Owen, who has played with the Gordonstoun Pipe Band for over two years now. Congratulations to Owen for representing the school so well and to everyone else in the Gordonstoun Pipe Band for such a fabulous performance!
Junior School Projects Begin Again
The start of a new term can only mean one thing... the start of new projects! This half term we had a varied range of projects for the children to choose from, such as: Book Club, Calligraphy, Cookery, Debating, Football, Kayaking, Mountain Biking, Movie Making, Sailing, Science Garden, Silk Painting and Tennis & Badminton.
Rugby Season is Back
Last Sunday, Gordonstoun U13 Boys played against Perthshire RFC in our first rugby fixture of this year. It was a lively contest with some good rugby on display from both teams. Our team rose to the challenge and played very positively against a strong opposition. Well done to all of the boys who represented the school and thank you to Perthshire RFC for organising and bringing a team for us to play against.
Mashed, Sauteed or Roasted
This week, Year 2 & 3 harvested the potatoes they had been growing in the new Junior School Science Garden. This experiment was started last year and has been running over 3 months. The children have seen the potatoes grow and understood the different conditions they need to develop in, giving them a greater grasp of where our food comes from. Finally, Mrs Csenki’s class got to see the fruits (or vegetables) of their work, before boiling then mashing them to make a tasty afternoon snack! Sounds very a’peel’ing to us!
