News from the Junior School Week 9
Ronnie Berry Jazz and Rock Concert
On Friday and Saturday night last week, Ogstoun Theatre hosted the Ronnie Berry Jazz and Rock Concert. In honour of the late Mr Berry, the school hosts the concert every year in his name. It’s a fantastic evening where many of the school’s musicians express themselves with lively and energetic music, and put on a spectacular show. The Junior School had two bands involved this year: Recovery and Bad Hair Day. Both of them were truly fantastic, performing with confidence and passion. The crowd loved it! Great work from everyone involved!
Last weekend, all of the boarding houses in the school participated in a Snowman Competition organised by Mr Devey. Here you can see the Junior School boarders’ creation, which we thought was a very strong entrant. Our Snowman represents a Gordonstoun education; he plays music, sport and loves the outdoors. He works hard in the classroom and, above all, he finds more in himself every day! Challenge, Internationalism, Service and Responsibility are all represented here.
Running out of Steam? No Chance!
This week, some of our Year 7 & 8 children were invited to run in a cross-country competition organised by the Senior School. The children ran with great enthusiasm, competing well in the Under-14 category despite the fact that, for most of them, they were racing children older than themselves. The effort shown by all of the runners was outstanding and we are thrilled to say that we secured some super positions, with Will C, Lawrence, Arran and Alex M winning bronze medals for the U14 boys’ race. For the girls’ races, Maisie, Katie, Sasha, Mieke and Geneva gave terrific competition. Excellent work from all of the runners!
