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.

Greenpower recruits needed

Greenpower is an international project to encourage interest in STEM subjects. Here at Banchory Academy it is open to all students up to the age of 16.  The objective is to design & build an electric racing car that will travel as far as possible on a single charge of the batteries.  The present car was built in academic year 2017-18 and competed at Alford in June 2018. Being a new-build, it had some teething issues and did not perform particularly well.  In the 2018-19 school year the project team made a number of improvements and won both Alford races in June 2019, beating the Scottish champions who have held the title for over 10 years and are unbeaten in Scotland.  The team plans to race at East Fortune on 22nd September & at Silverstone on 17th October in the international final.   The current team comprises 7 students and 4 external mentors. The project is an after-school activity held on a Tuesday afternoon from 15.40H -18.00H (day may change next term).   Students are briefed on a range of subjects including mechanics, electronics, programming, electrical, aerodynamics, design, practical workshop skills, fabrication, strategy, problem solving, fundraising, PR, project management, driving, teamwork and even some life skills!  This session we hope to begin the design and construction of a 2nd car to race. The team is keen to recruit some new members and would welcome potential applicants to attend a briefing session later this term.  We would also be keen to encourage some parent support and involvement – especially for track test and race days.  For more information please speak to Mr Grey in Science
