Year 7 Expedition Training

With expeditions just around the corner, Year 7 had the chance to get some canoe practice out in the open water at Loch Park. The purpose of the training was to give the children the chance to learn how to effectively steer a canoe down the loch and pick up enough pace to meet the challenges they will face when they canoe down the Great Glen in June.

Successful Sailing

Year 8 STV

On Sunday evening, the final Sail Training group returned to the Junior School. It has been another very successful year of sailing where the children and staff alike have thoroughly enjoyed their time on the boat. The children have learned some valuable sailing skills preparing them for their future years in the Senior School. For many children this is their first introduction to sailing and, in amongst learning how to sail, they normally learn a lot about themselves too as their character and communication skills are put to the test.

Thank you to Mr Lerner and all of the sailing staff who help make this experience so special for our Year 8 children every year. We are already looking forward to next year!

On Your Marks, Get Set, Go

On Tuesday, 21 children from the Junior School travelled to Aberdeen to participate in the Albyn School Athletics Match hosted at the Aberdeen Sports Village. The Junior School made up one third of the team representing Gordonstoun at the event, with Year 9s and 10s making up the rest. So much hard work has already gone into the Athletics programme this year, with students recording some super times, jumps and throws, and with many people getting their new personal bests!

Competition was incredibly high at the event but we competed fantastically well, with Gordonstoun finishing in second place overall! It was great to see the children put their hard work to the test and enjoy the atmosphere and spirit of the day, supporting one another and encouraging all of the athletes.
