News from the Junior School - Week 5

Peace One Day

Peace One Day - Make A Difference   Peace One Day - Peace

Thursday 21 September 2017 was named  this year’s International Day of Peace. Here at Gordonstoun, the entire school assembled on the South Lawn to send our message across the globe. This simple act  helps us to show solidarity and our continued support behind the movement for peace. We hope that the lessons the children learn here about Internationalism will stand them in great stead for the future and  help them to better understand the importance of embracing each other’s cultures and working together for a better future.

Club Sports

Last week, Conval, Aigan and Rinnes battled each other on various sporting fields. Year 7 and 8 boys played rugby; Years 4, 5 and 6 boys played football, and the girls faced-off in hockey matches. There was great energy and wonderful skills on show, with the children representing their clubs superbly. Brilliant work from everyone involved.

Boarders Have a Blast During Leave-Out Weekend

We have had our first Leave-Out Weekend at Aberlour House this year. The  children who stayed in school enjoyed a range of activities including: Ten-pin bowling, shopping in Elgin, pizza-making, ice cream factory and movie night! It was a great opportunity to relax and spend some quality time together. What a fantastic weekend!

Highland Games Update

Highland Games Cheque Hand-over

As many of you know, last year’s Junior School Highland Games was a  huge success. We raised a fantastic amount of money (£6,000) for   our  charities, The Forres Osprey Trust and Moray Women’s Aid. For an event to be so successful requires a lot of organisation and planning … and that starts now with our first Highland Games Committee meeting this week.
