PHARRELL WILLIAMS’ ‘HAPPY’ VIDEO
This year we are aiming to re-create Pharrell Williams’ ‘Happy’ Video. We are looking for pupil volunteers, boys or girls, from any year, who are willing to take part. The video can be found here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbZSe6N_BXs. Each scene is numbered so pupils will simply have to pick the scene number(s) they want to do. There are 118 scenes so there is plenty of choice for everyone. Most scenes are just a few seconds long so nothing too taxing. Last year’s re-make of Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ was a great success, hopefully this year it will be even better.
Technician Mr Shorrocks will shoot the video and this can be done at teachers and pupils convenience. This should be done outwith class time if possible but you must get your teacher’s permission to partake if during class time.
If you want to take part, please liaise with your teacher or see Mr Shorrocks who can be found in the Reprographics base or in Technical.

Head Teacher’s Welcome

Welcome to the Turriff Academy website. One of our senior leadership classes is currently working on revising and improving the website and keeping it up to date with our successes and achievements as well as informing pupils, parents and the wider community about key dates and events.

Turriff Academy is a community which fosters Respect, Ambition and Achievement for all. Turriff Academy has a long history of upholding the values of honesty, hard work, fairness and ambition and it has a strong reputation as a school where pupils feel safe, secure, supported and included.

I am impressed by how Respect, Ambition and Achievement are promoted throughout the school.

We aim to develop our young people to be the best they can be in everything they do to enable them to make a positive contribution to the local, national and global community. We aim to ensure that all our pupils secure and sustain a positive destination beyond school.

We have an exciting year ahead and are looking forward to working with our partners in the community in developing our young people.

I hope that you find the information provided useful and that it gives you a flavour of the ethos and aims of Turriff Academy.

Ms Lee Menzies

Head Teacher
