Thank you all for supporting the Junior Highland Games at Gordonstoun - It was a great Success!
The annual Junior Highland Games took place at the Junior School sports grounds, Gordonstoun, on 30th of April 2016.
From the Junior School Headmaster, Mr Robert McVean:
I am delighted to welcome you to the Junior Highland Games 2016 for what will be our 11th Junior Highland Games within the grounds of Gordonstoun.
I am very pleased to be looking forward to welcoming many teams and visitors this year and thank you for coming along to enjoy the day.
We will have many stalls and activities on offer, you are sure to have an action packed day, and all the money raised at the 27th games will be given to our chosen charities, Step by Step in Moray and Friends of Chernobyl Children (Moray).
Last year we raised over £4000 for our chosen charities.
This year, we are hoping to give Step by Step in Moray and Friends of Chernobyl Children (Moray) some much needed funding to help them with their great work with young children in need.

Friends of Chernobyl’s Children Moray is a new charity run by local families (Scottish Charity No. SC045530) set up to support children affected by the Chernobyl disaster by providing a “month of love and care” in Moray each year. Our first group of 16 children from Belarus came to Moray in September 2015.
Everyone involved in our charity is a volunteer and every penny we raise locally goes towards the cost of supporting our children and their trip to Moray each year.
These children benefited from relief from the harmful effects of the radiation absorbed through their food, drink and the air around them as a result of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.
Step by Step is an exciting parent and toddler group which offers a safe, relaxed and friendly meeting place for families with young children. We are based in a number of places around Northern Scotland.
We aim to give a warm welcome to everyone, whatever their age, relationship to the child, culture, religious background, colour, gender or disability. Offer the hand of friendship and a safe and happy environment for play.
We offer true friendship to everyone who comes to our group and create an environment where friendships are made among the parents and children. Encourage parents to enjoy playing with their children and to assist and participate in all activities, as they are an essential part of the group.
