Hundreds of pupils have celebrated the 60th anniversary of their school.
Students and staff from Northfield Academy marked the occasion by arranging themselves in the shape of a number 60 for a commemorative photograph.
A drone camera then took an overhead picture of the school.
Head teacher Neil Hendry said: “We felt we wanted to capture the school of 2016, 60 years after the school opened in 1956.
“Six hundred pupils and more than 80 staff are included in the photograph.
“The drone allowed us to get an image which will certainly be one for the school archives.”
In addition to the unusual school photograph, the school has also created a special Northfield Academy app charting the changes in education over the last 60 years.
It highlights the distance education has travelled over the six decades.
Mr Hendry added: “We are also delighted to be launching our new school app which anyone associated with the academy will be able from the Apple Store or Google Play free and use it to keep up-to-date with the life of the school.
“Again, we feel this development shows the journey travelled by the school in the last 60 years.”
Councillor Angela Taylor, Aberdeen City Council’s education and children’s services committee convener, said: “Neil, his pupils and staff have come up with a wonderful way of celebrating the anniversary of their school and one that will be looked back on with affection for years to come.
“Northfield Academy has been an integral, and constantly evolving, part of secondary education in Aberdeen for 60 years. This special anniversary will, I’m sure, spark fond memories for former pupils and staff spanning generations.”
10 years ago the school celebrated its 50th anniversary by launching a book of memories.
Northfield: The First Fifty Years was compiled by the school’s librarian Mandy Wilson. It featured dozens of stories from lessons, teachers, school trip through to tales of the school’s construction.
