Spring Term 2018

Inter-House Snowman Competition

With the first real snow in many a year, and all sports fixtures cancelled, it was announced that there would be a competition to build a snowman outside each House. The Houses had until 4pm to create their entry, take a picture and send it to Mr Devey who would be the judge. For some of our exchange students, this was their first encounter with snow, and what better way to enjoy the experience than building a traditional snowman - or a not so traditional one! The Junior School boarders also joined in the fun, creating a large snowman adorned to represent every aspect of a Gordonstoun education.

When the results were announced, the winners were G-House who, with a whole South Lawn of snow at their disposal, created a snow sculpture of a staf, the House emblem, as well as an igloo.

Well done everyone who took part - it certainly looked like a great deal of fun was had by all!
