Miniature Earth Learning Project 2017

3rd place for Bridge of Don Academy pupils for their entries in the Miniature Earth Learning Project 2017 which took place at the Montgomery Development Education Centre in Aberdeen.  All the pupils were given a certificate and you will be able to read their feedback from participation in the event in the next school magazine.


Manchester Trip

On the way back from a busy weekend in Manchester.

We arrived to Sport City for the Manchester City Fun Day with footballing challenges on their indoor artificial pitches. Then it was across the walkway to see the Manchester City v Chelsea game. After a slower start the visitors took control of the game and eventually ran out victorious.

A quick dash back to the coach meant that we could then get across to Elland Road for the Leeds United v Aston Villa game. With the fans behind them, it was the home team who bagged the 3 points here.

Day 2 included a visit to the “Theatre of Dreams” before heading over to the National Football Museum where pupils had the chance to test their footballing skills as well as their commentary abilities for Match of The Day.

We’re now back on the way up the road and are passing Glasgow just now (1900) – expecting to be back in Aberdeen for 2145. We will update the PE Twitter page ( @bodapeandsport ) if there is any change to this and the pupils will be making contact when we are at Stonehaven.

Drama Skills Evening a great Success!

Last Tuesday evening, family and friends of both the National 5 and Higher Drama classes, came together in the Drama Studio to witness the first of many, Bridge of Don Academy Drama Skills Evenings. The pupils did amazingly and the feedback from the audience was extremely positive. Thank you to all for the support to the Drama department so far.

And just a bit silly...Dream Team!
