Girls' Netball Tour

Girls' Netball Tour

A fabulous few days up North!

On Thursday 3rd March our Form 6 & 8 girls headed North to Gordonstoun, stopping first in Aberdeen to play games against Robert Gordon College. RGC were fantastic hosts, booking netball courts at the local Beach Club Sports Centre and providing competitive games. We then continued North to the beautiful grounds at Gordonstoun set in the countryside near Elgin.

Altyre Boarding House was our home for the two nights. The girls woke early on Friday morning to a stunning sunrise and joined the Gordonstoun Prep Boarders for an early breakfast.

We were then taken on a wonderful tour of the vast school campus including The Round Square, the Schools Fire Station, Michael Kirk in the woods, the School Chapel designed like a giant open book and spotting Prince Charles’ boarding house. It was great to see some of our former pupils again including Ruby, Sabine and Zara and then later Maclean and Austin.

The girls then split into groups and had the opportunity to try some of the school's facilities including rock climbing, shooting and the assault course.

After lunch we headed to the sports hall for our netball games. This included two Under 13 games and one Under 11. All games were of a highly competitive level with both schools highlighting their strengths.

The evening finished with marshmallows around the braziers at the Prep Boarding House.

Gordonstoun were fantastic hosts and we look forward to meeting them on the Netball court in the future.
