Burns Night Celebrations

Burns Night was celebrated on Saturday evening with the Junior School joining with the  Senior School for reels in the Sports Hall. We also enjoyed a delicious meal of haggis, tatties and neeps, as our wonderful refectory staff had skilfully caught and cooked the  “Great chieftain o the puddin’-race”. For many, it was the first time trying haggis and it received a big thumbs up!

Treasure Hunting

The Treasure Hunting project has been full of  excitement during Tuesday afternoons. They have already been geo-caching, beach combing and metal detecting. This week, they found some interesting old door locks  which  led  to  the  discovery  of  the  foundations of some bygone building on the school grounds.

The children are now going to research to see if they can find out what building used to be there, in the grassy area to the west of St Christopher’s Chapel.

Year 2/3 Letters Arrive in Malawi

Last term, our Year 2/3 class sent letters to the Bishop Mackenzie International School in Malawi. We are very pleased to learn that the letters arrived safely and upon reading them, the children of Bishop Mackenzie School carried out some research on Gordonstoun and Scotland in their class. They have since produced their own letters which are on their way in the post to  Mrs Csenki’s class. We are delighted with this international connection and their fabulous letters.

Body Defences in Year 8 Biology

Year 8s have been working on the body’s defences in Biology this term. They have been looking at the different physical and chemical defences that the body uses to  prevent us from getting sick and ensure our body can continue to function. The brilliant life-size diagrams seen here illustrate where and how the different defences work.
