The very first Elgin Academy ‘Sports Personality of the Year” award has been presented to Sophia Green, recognising her achievements in swimming, cross country and triathlon. The award was the idea of the PE department, who wanted to recognise the vast wealth of sporting talent in the school, and hopefully inspire others in the process. Also nominated were Joel McBeath (football), Chloe McIntosh (Taekwondo), Megan Edwards (Judo), Daniel Campbell (orienteering). In second place was Bradley McNairn (kickboxing), whilst third place went to Cameron Main for cross country and triathlon. In total, 898 votes were cast.

An evening of high quality musical entertainment was enjoyed at Elgin Academy on Wednesday 25 March, when our Spring Concert was held. We hear from our orchestra, the swing group, a string quartet , amongst several others. The evening was rounded off in style by a selection of songs from Les Miserables performed by Loris Davidson, Ross Cumming and Callum McLeod. Thanks got the large team of people who made it all happen, particularly our music instructors and music teachers.

A group of students from Mrs Forster’s S5 English class went to see Arthur Miller’s ‘View from the Bridge’ NT Live at Eden Court, Inverness. The students have been studying the play as part of their National 5 English course.
The play was live streamed from the Young Vic theatre in London and starred Mark Strong and Nicola Walker.
Emily Reynolds said “I really enjoyed the dramatic effects that were used in the play, especially the scene when all of the characters were covered in blood at the end”.
Joanne Watson said that she “loved the tense atmosphere in the play and thought it had been a brilliant opportunity to see a show which, unless you visit London, is usually inaccessible”.
Connor Milne “enjoyed it because Eden court is a lovely venue and I thought the performances were first class”.
Joy Dewhurst said that she thought “It was totally different and nothing like you would expect from the theatre. It seemed modern and exciting!”
A great night was had by all.
