The S1 U13 football team celebrated their success after winning the Green Final Trophy 5-1 against Bucksburn Academy. This is a great achievement by all the pupils who were a credit to the school, showing determination and confidence as a team as well as playing in a fair and competitive manner. This is the first time in ten years a football team has won a trophy and the last time Bridge of Don won this trophy was back in 1980. With the season now finished we look forward to the team playing again as U14’s in the S2 competitions in August. Well done to all players!
As part of Bridge of Don Academy’s drive to close the poverty related attainment gap and increase the health and well-being of all pupils the school have introduced free comfort closets. Each Guidance teacher, along with the school office have a range of deodorants, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes and shower gels for any pupil to collect free if they feel they need. Along with free sanitary products provided by Aberdeen City Council any pupil can approach the school office or guidance teacher and ask for any of the items should they need. We look forward to pupils using this resource responsibly in the schools drive to bring equity to the school day.
