The pupils were amazing, working both as a team and  for the team. Not only did we win the event but we had the fastest pit stops, now rank 30th of of 140+ UK teams and have been the only team to beat the reigning GTM team at Alford in over 5 years. Many thanks to the team mentors:Chris Engel, Steve Engel, Chris Charnley and Keith Roberts.  Pupils involved:-Duncan Amundrud, Mark Littlejohn, Phoebe MacLeod, Rory Pritchett, Bailey McKay & Matthew Mackinnon.





John Stuart Mill Cup Debating Competition



Congratulations to Banchory Academy pupils Cameron, Emma and Rishi who took part in the John Stuart Mill Cup Debating competition at St Andrews University last week.

Missing out on getting to the semi final, coming 2nd in their group with St Columba's just winning by 11 points, the team presented a fantastic case on the rights of transgender criminals to be placed in male or female prison where the charge was sexual assault.  The cases they discussed were picked at random and the topics were not easy ones for relatively young people to  discuss and handle. High School of Dundee were the eventual winners.

Horseback UK Royal Visit

On 25th June our Horseback pupils were lucky enough to get invited to attend Horseback UK for a visit by the Duchess of Cornwall. She wanted to recognise the charity for all the work they do with both the veterans and their youth development programmes.

It was a truly fantastic experience for us all and it brought the whole team together; Horseback staff, volunteers, the pupils, the veterans, the teachers, the mentors and the fundraiser's. We were extremely proud to be able to show the Duchess our skills working with horses and share this special day.  Click here to view photos from the day.
