The second ever Bridge of Don Academy Summer Festival was held on Wednesday 26th June in glorious weather on the sports fields. The day began with the whole school being led out by class representatives and house flags and then was officially opened by the Aberdeen Assassin Lee McAllister. Throughout the day featured a range of athletic events including shot putt, long jump, high jump, and 100m & 200m races. All athletics events built points towards the Barbers Pole Inter House Sports Trophy and it was a close run affair all day. The relay’s and tug of war helped Drum House earn enough points to be crowned this years Sports Champions.
Alongside the athletics events we were lucky to receive fantastic support and sponsorship from local businesses and companies to provide a wide and exciting range of fun activities for pupils to take part in along with delicious food being provided by external providers. Thanks to our sponsors: ASDA, Scotmid, The Barbers Pole, Kenway Tyres, BP Garage King Street, Pure Gym, Murcar Links, BME UK Ltd, Probe, Striders Coffee Shop, Imenco and the Parent Council.
