Return of Art & Design folios

URGENT REMINDER – Art & Design 2015-16 pupils

If you want your folio back from the SQA from last year you need to get £7 (cheque payable to GGS School Fund or cash) to Mr McCrow by Monday 26th September for the SQA’s postage and packing charge.  SQA charge a huge fee for late requests, so don’t be late.

Work will be returned by December 2016, unless you have had a marking review, in which case your work will come back in December 2017.

The girls in pink are back!!

They only had to go and pick the hottest day of term for GGS U’15 rugby girls first ever game! Clad in pink, the girls, who were half expecting a 7s tournament, turned up at the Gordon Schools to discover that Keith and Speyside High schools had cancelled and the Huntly girls were the only opposition. Despite having never played in a “real” game, [and learning to do scrums about 2 minutes before the start of play] the girls fought bravely against bigger, more experienced players, eventually coming away with their first try.

Our S2 try scorer, had a great run down the wing and held off a chase from an equally nippy Huntly girl. As a team,  the GGS girls bonded well and as they were largely on the defensive, tackling skills have improved dramatically!! Huge thanks to Miss Duff, Mrs. Booth and Mrs. Blair ;]

GGS v Huntly  final score 5 – 32

Next match; GGS v Huntly – 29th September 2016 @4 p.m.
