Congratulations to the Class of 2024! - ׽ͼ: Specialist services & support for young people facing adversity


Posted: June 12, 2024

Senior learners from Goudie Academy dressed in their finest to celebrate their school prom and all of their achievements.

This year’s theme was Glitz and Glam, as decided by learners, and the afternoon’s celebrations certainly lived up to the glamorous title! Graduates were formally greeted at the entrance to the Gannochy Theatre – the glittering backdrop of the day’s events.  Fifth year learners were integral in the organising of the day’s events, including the planning, design and dressing of the room, under the watchful eye of their teachers.

It was a day of huge celebration and pride as senior learners graduated from Goudie Academy, with a special ceremony to congratulate them on their many achievements. Awards were handed out by key tutors to all graduates, who proudly and emotionally spoke of their key pupil’s academic journey, their achievements, all that they are and all that they will go on to achieve. The sky is the limit! Everyone also watched a video showcase celebrating their many educational milestones.

There was lots of toe-tapping, singing and dancing as the ׽ͼ band ‘The Komonauts’ took to the stage to perform a medley of popular songs in front of an excited audience. The accumulation of years of band rehearsals, performances and coaching.

Delicious food and mocktails were served by HE Teacher, Carol, and perhaps the icing on the cake was the doughnut wall and sweetie stall. With dressing up the theme of the day, there was much hilarity at the photo booth, with young people and teachers getting celebratory snaps in silly hats, glasses and other crazy props.

There was a real energy in the room as pupils invited important people in their lives, and were joined by teaching staff from Forest View, Mirin Academy and Skills Academy to enjoy the celebrations.

Leona Donnelly, Deputy Head of Education, commented: 

We’d like to take this opportunity to express our sincere congratulations to the class of 2024 and we know that they will go on to achieve so many great and wonderful things in the future. It’s been a pleasure and honour to welcome you to classes each day and share in all of your incredible achievements.
