P7 had a great time during their Monday co-curricular training session with a friendly against St Margaret’s. We had 16 girls out playing and all trying different positions on the court. They all worked very hard and had a great deal of fun. P6 took part in their Easter fun possession shoot competition across 4 teams.

Senior Netball held their annual House Netball tournament on Monday after school, which is always a great fun event! Well done to the winners, Blackfriars, 2nd Collyhill, 3rd Straloch and 4th Sillerton. Mrs Hardie, Mrs Axten and Mrs McEwan said an emotional goodbye to their S6 players at their final session of RGC Netball! 

On Tuesday afternoon our S2 and S3 teams travelled south to Strathallan School for a series of fixtures. S2A worked very hard and enjoyed their match despite the loss. Anastasiya R was Player of the Match for her versatility at playing both GA and the WA, listening to all coaching points and working hard. She also stepped in to play in the S3A game afterwards. Strathallan awarded their POM to Saso A. It was a very close, nail biting match for S2B who won by just 1 goal! Miss Stephen moved the girls around positions which made them really think about their passing options. POM was Titi O for her outstanding interceptions and also Isla M for her excellent feeds into the circle.

It was also a very exciting match for S3A, winning by 2 goals, who were challenged due to missing a couple of their players. POMs were Tammy O and Sofia H with both girls showing excellent movement in the circle and such a big improvement from the start of the season. S3B were also delighted to win their match, down to the wire with just a 2 goal lead. POM was Grace H for her hard work at C and then GK while also making many interceptions and showed great leadership on the court.

S2/3 held their House Netball tournament at co-curricular training on Wednesday where numbers were strong and face paint was out in abundance! Well done to winners, Sillerton, 2nd Collyhill, 3rd Straloch & Blackfriars. 

Girls Football

On Tuesday after school our newly formed S1-3 Senior Girls Fun Football group ended their season with a friendly match against Albyn's U15s. Our RGC Girls have worked hard this term and found out that there is some stiff competition out there. However, our team of 8 dug deep and fought hard to the very end. There was some passing and shooting to be proud of, however, our 2 goals weren't quite enough to come out with a victory. The players had great fun and it was a great way to see out our first year of Girls Football. Mrs West is very proud of her small but fierce team. We look forward to seeing what 2023/2024 brings for Girls Football!


Senior Basketball played in their final match of the League on Tuesday against Aberdeen Grammar and what a game to finish on! Their win by just 3 points secured their place as winners of the Aberdeen City School’s League, remaining undefeated in League and 10-1 overall in the season. The team got off to a fast start but all credit to Aberdeen Grammar for keeping the game within 10 points and finishing with a flurry to get within 1 with just over a minute to play. RGC kept their composure and clamped down on defence the rest of the way. It was a great team effort on both ends of the court, with Andrew G leading the way on defence and rebounding. Man of the Match went to our captain, Asher C for helping the team keep focused, his defensive effort, and for making some huge baskets including a lay in with about 10 seconds left to put the team up by 3!


A group of 20 pupils from P5-S5 travelled to St Andrews on Wednesday to play in the annual St Leonard’s School Golf Championships across 4 golf courses. This is always an excellent event for our pupils to be involved with and gives them a fantastic experience competing against pupils from other schools. Harry M (P5) won the Flag U10s and Harry C (P6) was 2nd in the Flag U12s, both in the Balgove Competition. Diego O (S4) was 2nd in the Eden Course Net Competition. Well done to all our players.


Well done to Sillerton on winning the S4 mixed House Hockey on Thursday. 2nd place went to Collyhill with Blackfriars and Straloch sharing 3rd place.



The College recently had two National Cup Tennis matches in the Boys and Girls knockout competition. The boys were drawn against Aberdeen Grammar School in the second round of the Cup so were very keen to play against opponents that they knew well. The matches started off well for RGC with a great win for Jake L over his opponent in the boys singles. Kevin S also started off strongly in the singles by winning the first set 6 - 1 but was then unable to resist a strong surge by his opponent in the second set and tie break. The number one and two singles matches saw our captain, Conall C and Zack W bravely battle against very high quality opponents who took the remaining two singles matches. This was a very high quality match overall with our best wishes going to Aberdeen Grammar who are moving on to the next round.

The girls were drawn against Albyn in the first round of the National Cup, which was played at Westburn Tennis Centre. The team, Zoe L [Captain], Jennifer G, Bonnie C and Sophie J started with two singles matches and a doubles. Bonnie played really well to win her singles match along with Jennifer, and we were also successful in one of the doubles matches to tie the match 3 - 3. This meant we needed to play a 10 point doubles tiebreak. The two players picked for the tiebreak, Bonnie and Jennifer, really fought hard to get the score to 7 - 7 before succumbing to a 10 - 7 loss. What a match, so close and full credit to all the girls involved.


Sunday morning was a fantastic day for RGC Rugby as our S3 and S4 teams competed in the finals of the Scottish Rugby Caledonia Cup at Sheddocksley Pitches in Aberdeen. RGC S3 won the Caledonia U15 Bowl 64-20 against Strathmore Rugby with their most complete performance of the season. Defensively they were solid for the majority of the game, putting Strathmore under huge pressure and forcing them to make mistakes. In attack the team put together some excellent phases of play, attacking space at pace and supporting the ball well. A delighted Mr McKay gave his thanks to the whole squad for the season, not just those who played on Sunday, for all their hard work and (some times over) enthusiasm throughout the competition!

The success continued as the S4s won the U16 Caledonia Bowl against Kirkcaldy RFC 39-19. Since the pool stages of the competition finished, there has been a lightbulb moment within the squad in terms of understanding the detail in how we want to play the game. In attack, our shape is now near muscle memory and we were able to move Kirkcaldy’s large pack about, shifting the point of contact constantly and causing their defence all sorts of problems. We were defensively very solid, stopping their pack at source and preventing any real go forwards for them. A special shout-out to Harry M who scored a hat trick with an outstanding 10/10 offensive performance. Mr Riddle and Mr Beattie thanked their squad for all their hard work this year. They are very proud of the team they’ve become and this was a great way to finish the season.
