Scottish Schools Indoor Rowing Championships 2015

On Friday 20th November a group of 31 S1-4 Bridge of Don Academy pupils traveled to Glasgow to take part in the Scottish Schools Rowing Championships.  All pupils raced in an individual race and a team race against pupils from schools from all over Scotland.  The pupils all performed brilliantly and represented their school in a manner they should be proud of.

Due to the excellent performance of these pupils, and all other pupils that took part in the Scottish Schools Indoor Rowing League, Bridge of Don Academy were successful in winning the Scottish Autumn League Trophy, beating Albyn School into 2nd place.

Well done everybody.
