On Friday 7th September the revamped Bridge of Don Academy PE Interhouse competition was launched with an exciting and energetic S1 Badminton game. Mixed teams of 6 competed against each other in doubles and singles in front of an excited and supportive crowd with Drum house taking full points from the first event. Fyvie picked up 30 for second place with Crathes receiving 10. Well done to the house captains in their first role in organizing teams. Next week’s event is S2 futsal where teams of 5 are needed to represent their houses.
On Wednesday 27th June Bridge of Don Academy hosted its first ever Summer Festival which incorporated sports day events along with inter-house competitions.
The event began after break and saw the whole school organised in their houses outside of the field before it was launched by Olympic curler and BBC Commentator Jackie Lockhart. Following this pupils were able to take part in a wide range of practical activities ranging from a climbing wall to zumba, volleyball to velcrowall and mountain biking to bungee run. Sports finalists for S1-S4 were also crowned in the 100m, 200m, shot putt and high jump.
Inter-house events were staged at the end of the day and saw Crathes, Fyvie and Drum go head to head in tug of war, relays and Tyre flipping with Crathes coming out on top in a very close competition.
