  • poignant poppies

    Published 12/07/18

    A symbol of remembrance the world over, the poppies made today by Year 7s at Gordon's have an extra special meaning for those at the school. For each one of the 700 plus has been inscribed with the name of a Gordonian that was killed in the First World War. This year marks the centenary of the end of the First World War. The Gordon's poppies will be ‘planted’ next to General Gordon’s statue on the Front Field in the lead up to Remembrance Day and the Parade, which takes place in November.

  • trip to see jamie

    Published 12/07/18

    The thrilling behind-the-scenes tour of the oldest West End theatre included live action from current actors, and it was as intriguing as it was enlightening. But I have to say my favourite part of the event was viewing the West End show 'Everybody's Talking About Jamie', starring the incredibly talented and sensational actor John McCrea, who plays the main lead, Jamie New. We even got to meet him, his actor mother and his teacher in the play after the show, and also the mother of the real Jamie, who this play is based on, was there too. A 'Q and A' session took place, where both students and teaches alike eagerly raised their hands, and I learnt a lot about the theatre, the actor's lives and their successes through hard work. I would definitely recommend all parts of the trip to everyone, and I thank all the teachers involved for providing such an amazing opportunity. By Darcy Watson
