Talk about Careers at home!

By talking about careers with your children as early as you can, you’ll be able to help them find a job or career pathway that offers them the future they want. But it can be difficult to know where to begin – or where to find the time.

Skills Development Scotland have provided discussion guides, written by expert careers advisers and designed to mirror your child’s milestones, will provide the steps you need to approach these conversations with confidence.

From subject choices to the jobs of the future, routes to entry, to what to do when they don’t get the exam results they need – we’ve got credible, up-to-date advice on critical issues.

Bridge of Don Academy staff raise £280 for charity with Bake Off

Over the last 4 weeks 12 staff members have been competing in the Great BODA Bake Off 2019 to raise money for 2 charities; Macmillan Cancer Support & The MS Trust.  Bakers were pitted against each other in round 1 and had to bake based on a theme including scones, shortbread, cupcakes and chocolate.  Staff voted and donated to both charities before the winners from each round went through to a semi-final.  Following victories in their respective Semi-finals Miss Mustard (PE), Miss Crawford (Art) and Mrs Forbes (English) went head to head on Thursday in the final with their amazing “showstopper” cakes.

Following all the fantastic efforts Miss Crawford was crowned BODA Bake Off Champion for 2019 but more importantly £280 was raised which will be split equally between Macmillan and the MS Trust.

Music Concert

Music concert

Well done to all the musicians who took part in the concert on Monday and Tuesday.

The standard of performance was excellent and it was nice to see a clip from the school show which takes place in June.

Thank you to the audience who attended. We raised £285 for friends of anchor.
