Head's end of year message
Posted: Friday 23 June 2017
As we finish the end of the 2016/17 academic year it is good to look back and reflect on the huge amount that has been achieved in that time.
As ever, time has passed incredibly quickly and it has been uplifting to see the pupils progressing in so many areas of their lives. Their academic skills and knowledge has been furthered in every case and we look forward to the SQA examination results in August for the S4-S6 pupils. The development of the pupils, younger and older, through their involvement in sport, music, drama, art, outdoor education and clubs and societies has been broad and deep. We are incredibly proud of their many achievements, both in and out of school. Equally the depth of interpersonal and ‘soft’ skills has been impressive. All of these contribute to the well rounded character - or the development of the whole person - that Gordon’s is noted for.
I would like to thank the staff for their dedicated commitment to all of the pupils in academic, pastoral and extra-curricular capacities. I would also like to commend all of the families at Robert Gordon’s College with whom we have a shared endeavour. We bid Mrs Mennie a very happy retirement and Mrs Angus a very good start to her new role as Rector of St Columba’s, Kilmacolm. We wish Mrs Webb every success as she begins as our new Head of Junior School in August and equally Mr Elder a good term as he takes over as Head of Senior School at the same time.
On behalf of the College I wish you all a very good and relaxing summer break before we return in late August for the 2017/18 session.
