Congratulations to everyone who participated in Sports Day and to Kerloch - this
years house winners. It was an action packed day with many long standing records
being smashed. Full results to follow soon.
Ewan McMillan has been awarded a Gold CREST Award in recognition of his research
into Dark Matter and Dark Energy. Ewan carried out this research entirely on his
own, following up a long held interest in the topic. He communicated his findings
in the form of a poster and a powerpoint presentation which was attended by his colleagues
from the Advanced Higher Physics class and members of staff.
Ewans' presentation was interesting and informative and touched on many of the 'hot'
research topics in Physics. It was followed by questioning and some debate which
was ably handled!
The Gold CREST Award is a significant achievement. Ewan joins the STEM in the Pipeline
team and Calum Mackintosh who have also achieved the Gold Award this year. Well done!
Aberdeenshire council has changed the way parents receive online alerts about school
closures and changes to school transport. You can now sign up for these notifications
through myaccount on the Aberdeenshire Council website – if you currently pay for
school meals online, you will already be registered.
myaccount is a simple, secure way of accessing a range of Scottish public services
using just one username and password and 13,000 parents across Aberdeenshire are
already enjoying the benefits of it. As well as being able to sign up for alerts,
your home page will automatically give you handy information such as your bin collection
days, where your nearest recycling centre is and the names of your local councillors.
So, if you want to be kept up-to-date and take advantage of the other myaccount benefits,
sign up to the new system by going to the Aberdeenshire Council website and clicking
on the red register button in the top right-hand corner.
