Throwback Thursday: Drama Department – Fringe Trip

Throwback to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival Trip organised for Senior Drama pupils in the first week of term. Pupils had a great time seeing 3 different plays, touring Edinburgh and dinner in Nandos! Pupils were a credit to Bridge of Don with both the driver of the coach and several members of the public commenting on how mature and well mannered our pupils are. Very proud Drama teacher. 🙂

 

Bridge of Don Community Council Logo Competition Winner

Ewen Lindsay in 3F was awarded a £50 Amazon voucher by Bridge of Don Community Council for winning their council logo competition.  The council approached BODA directly to ask for our talented pupils to come up with a new design to be launched in both digital online format and in print.  We were thrilled to give a live project to pupils and to be involved in a project that would directly impact the local community.

       

For the project, Sam Longmire, – Creative Director at the award winning local graphic design agency FortyTwo Studio, was invited by Miss Crawford and Mrs Redpath to come in and speak with pupils.  This gave them support in the early stages of their design process.  Pupils learned a great deal from his visit and the Art & Design department hopes to continue a close partnership with the agency in the future.

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
