Blooming Great Tea Party

S6 Leadership Blooming Great Tea Party

On Thursday the 22nd of June, Bridge of Don Academy pupils of the new S6 Leadership class held a fundraising event for Marie Curie. The class were given 3 days to prepare for this. Teachers and pupils were invited along to come and enjoy some tea and cakes. The event was a major success, raising £110 for a great cause helping support those in need. Marie Curie is a UK based charity that helps people through their illnesses by giving them emotional and physical support with nurses working night and day to meet these people’s needs.

Singing Successes

This week two groups performed at the Aberdeen and North East Music Festival and achieved outstanding success.  On Wednesday the senior choir won their class and we will post a photograph as soon as we can get them all back together.  On Friday a quartet of senior girls won second place in the vocal and choral light music ensemble 15 -17.  Given that there were 10 entrants this is a real achievement.  It is good to see hard work and practice bringing success and very positive feedback from the adjudicators.  Quartet

Look Again Visual Art & Design Festival

LOOK AGAIN Art & Design Trip

In March we were very lucky to be involved in creating a sculpture for the Look Again Visual Art & Design Festival.  Pupils from 1X3, 2X3 and 2X1 were chosen to work with Dundee Sculptor Jason Nelson to create a cardboard sculpture that portrayed different aspects of what life is like being a young person in Aberdeen.  The trumpet shaped sculpture links in theme to two interactive sculptures that Jason has created for the festival.  The wooden sculptures are on display until 1st May in Pocket Park opposite the Central Library.  The public are invited to sit on the bench inside the sculptures to hear audio of the people of Aberdeen recounting urban tales and memories of the city.

Sculpture Jason Nelson

We hope to have the cardboard sculpture returned to the school, to be put on display after the festival,  where pupils and staff will be able to view it in the school library.
