This year’s Science Festival once again provided the pupils at Banchory Academy and the cluster Primary Schools with an opportunity to showcase their Scientific talents.  With over 45 stalls and around 300 visitors we celebrated all things scientific, from robots to microbiology, from memory tests and hand steadiness to satellites and neutrinos our pupils once again did themselves (and their teachers) proud. Thank you to all the participants for all their hard work in putting together a night to remember. See you in 2021!

Aberdeenshire Council would like to invite you to take part in a consultation on the pattern of school holidays, term dates and in-service closure dates.  The consultation will run from 25th March 2019 until 6th May 2019 and is available online here

The current pattern of school holidays & term dates was approved by the Education, Learning & Leisure Committee on 29 May 2014. This covered the sessions from 2014/15 to 2019/20.

The pattern of school holiday & term dates currently takes into account the following factors:

Congratulations to S4 pupil Tom Blackhall who has been selected to play for the Scotland Blues U16 Rugby Team, this finishes with a 10 day tour of Wales.

The festival will be held at locations across Wales, where the Scots will play fixtures against several Welsh teams including the Ospreys, Scarlets, Dragons, Blues and RGC.

The philosophy behind the festival - which runs from 15 April to 24 April - is to enable players to develop their individual and team performance.

Good Luck Tom!

Banchory Skatepark Crew had a very successful trip to Edinburgh which included a visit to the Scottish Parliament & sessions in 3 different skateparks. After a very early departure from Banchory, having loaded up our minibus with the skatepark crew, our volunteers and a van with bikes, scooters & boards, we arrived in Edinburgh in good time for our meeting with our local MSP Alexander Burnett and a tour of the parliament.  We then attended First Minister’s Questions, which we had prepared for by watching it live the previous Thursday, so we knew what to expect.  Having checked into our apartments at Leith we had a fast food lunch and then made our way to Saughton outdoor skatepark where a great time was had by all.  In the evening we visited Transgression indoor park in Leith and after a restful night we set off for East Kilbride on Friday and had a superb day in Zone 74.  Some of the funding for the trip was from our own Tesco Bag Pack, but a substantial amount was from Aberdeenshire Youthbank and we had a top up from South Marr Community Safety Group so many thanks to both of those organisations for making the trip possible. Thanks also to our volunteers, Russ & Debbie Crichton, Derry & Megan Douglas, our wonderful volunteer minibus driver Graeme Hansley & also to Banchory Academy for supporting the trip.
