The Leadership and Expeditions teams for our Polar Academy expedition to Greenland in 2020 now have their own Twitter account, @BBPolarAcademy, to support their fundraising and enabling them to share their journey with you.
Check out the group’s JustGiving page to learn more about this fantastic opportunity for our young people and to donate to the project.
Last night saw the Senior Awards Ceremony marked the end of the school year and our celebration of achievements for our senior pupils. It is always inspiring to share some of the incredible things that our young people manage to do during the session.
Thank you to The Polar Academy’s, Luke Robertson for being Guest of Honour on the night.
The “unseasonably” bright night meant that our photograph didn’t quite turn out how we planned!
We would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of everyone, to wish you all a fantastic summer!
The Global Goals Group want to say a huge thank you to our Support Services Co-ordinator, Miss Doig, for her unconditional support in all our ventures, always updating the website, Facebook and Twitter with news of our events. The work we do wouldn’t be possible without her help, and her presence will be greatly missed.
We wish you all the best in Banchory and we hope to keep in touch.
June 13th, 14th and 15th saw four amazing performances at the Byre Theatre, St Andrews. This was the culmination of months of hard work from a dedicated cast. Not only was this the premier of a brand new musical, but it was a first for Bell Baxter, performing at the Byre Theatre. The cast and crew loved working in a professional theatre with incredibly helpful theatre staff. This made the run very special for everyone involved, as everyone approached the project as a professional production, not a school show.
So, the expectations were high and (judging by the flood of praise we received) the audiences were not disappointed. All of the actors owned that stage with enormous energy and confidence. The crew enjoyed using the professional standard equipment and facilities to lift the production to a new level with the sound and lighting and backstage.
The show was the incredible reward of three years of work for Mr McNicol and Mr Robb. A huge thank you and congratulations to all involved and to everyone who came along and supported us. Keep your eyes peeled and you ear to the ground for news of the next show. Mr McNicol and Mr Robb are already in discussion about the possibilities. No definite decisions yet, but rumour has it that “Bring It On” is a strong contender. Have a great summer.
Mr Robb & Mr McNicol
