Rugby Success

Congratulations to the Three Counties Combined Schools team who won the Under 18s Scottish Rugby Schools’ Bowl 45 – 34 in a hard fought match against Gordonstoun on Wednesday evening. The team, captained by Fergus Nicol, and comprising of pupils from Nairn Academy, The Gordon Schools Huntly, Speyside High, Milne’s High School had 6 players from Elgin Academy, including Fergus. Their dedication in getting themselves  to Nairn for joint training on Monday evenings for many weeks has paid off, even after the huge disappointment of being deprived of playing the Final in Murrayfield. Congratulations to Alex Miller, Rhys Jones, Marcus Huby, Gabe Beadle, Mathew Ness and Fergus Nicol, and congratulations and thanks  to Chris Lee Development Officer and Scott Macdonald, Coach, for their time and encouragement.

Presidential Performance

The term of office of our Head Teacher David Barnett as President of School Leaders Scotland came to an end at their annual conference in St Andrews last week. To mark this, a very talented group of musicians travelled to perform at the pre-dinner reception on Thursday 22 November. These were ‘Papa Dadams and the Dadams Five’ – Euan Adams, William Bliault, Alex Hadfield, Jacob Holder, Blair Jackson and Oliver Stalker. Delegates and guests were hugely impressed with their performance. Thanks go to Mrs Ross, PT Music, for her support, including driving the minibus to take them there and back. Thanks also go to S4 pupil Rory Stanley for producing a video clip which introduced Mr Barnett’s presidential address.
