Spring Term 2018

News from the Junior School - Week 11

Everybody Loves That Show!

Bugsy Malone

The Junior School production of Bugsy Malone raised the roof of the Ogstoun Theatre with rapturous applause as all of the fifty plus children of Year 7 and 8 took to the stage to perform two stunning performances this week. It was a culmination of weeks of preparation, rehearsal and committing lines to memory which paid off with remarkable professionalism as well as huge fun. The cast’s wonderful singing was accompanied by a superb live band of students and staff. The acting, dancing and splurging was a spectacle not to be missed. Congratulations to everyone involved and especially to our fabulous directors: Mrs Hopkirk and Mr Csenki!

Concert Band Achieves Award in Perth

Award-winning cocnert band

Last Saturday, the Junior School Concert Band travelled to Perth Concert Hall to compete in the Scottish Schools Concert Band Festival Final,  giving the children a wonderful opportunity to play in a huge venue. The children rose to the occasion and performed superbly, achieving a silver plus award. Congratulations to everyone involved!

Scholarship Success

We were very proud of all the children who gave of their very best to compete in the Gordonstoun Lower School Scholarships this term. The time and effort required to complete all of the revision sessions and prepare for the exams alone, shows the great commitment  of the  children who took on the challenge.

Scholarship Award

Well done to everyone involved and many congratulations to Tilly who earned the Sgian Dubh for academic achievement.

Ski Racing

Congratulations to the Gordonstoun Junior School Primary Team for their excellent performance at the SSSA Alpine Series race at The Lecht, last Wednesday. Angus M finished second in the Open Category out of twenty two racers, while Brodie was the second fastest Novice racer, out of a field of thirty one. In the team results, one of our Novice teams (Henry, Fraser, Angus S and Tyler) finished in fourth place out of twelve, just missing out on a podium position. Well done to all of the racers.
