Lockdown Physical Activity

During lockdown, we have continued to promote the JASS and DofE award schemes for our pupils to complete. This encourages our pupils to stay physically active, develop new skills and contribute to our community during these testing times.

As today was supposed to be our annual sports day, “The Grammar Games”, some of our S6 pupils have put together the following video, showcasing the wide range of physical activities have been doing to stay active during lockdown. We hope you enjoy!

 

Duke of Edinburgh Awards Ceremony 2018

On the evening of the 26th February, Aberdeen Grammar School pupils were celebrating their success in completing their Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

The annual Aberdeen City DofE Awards ceremony took place at the Beach Ballroom and was attended by 11 Grammar pupils, along with Mr. Kerr, Miss. Waddel and Mr. Douglas. Over 180 pupils, were in attendance from across all the city schools, making this year’s awards ceremony the biggest to date.  Dozens of parents, teachers and volunteers were also present on the evening.

Over sixty Grammar pupils successfully completed their Duke of Edinburgh award at either Bronze or Silver level in 2017 – one of the highest numbers of any Aberdeen school.  Well done!
