Last day of term

Hello From all at the PTA - who are we, what do we do ?

We are a very small group of parents who try our very best to offer sometime to raising funds to help support the children and teachers of the School. We never know when funding maybe required it maybe a student who has been offered the chance of a life time to visit another country or to play an instrument, sing a song or join in competitions to win an award both for themselves and for the school. Or a teacher looking for funding to buy something that will benefit your child on there Education journey.  As we all see our children leave there days of Banchory Academy behind them to start there new journey, we also sadly see the parents within the small group of the PTA leave offering an even smaller group to help to raise funds for up coming events, therefore if you are new to the school or your child has just joined the new path of secondary school, or have been meaning to come along and see who we are, then now is the time to do it why not come along and join the PTA or even offer contact details so that we can contact you if you would be happy to support any of the fund raising events.  Without parents/carers coming forward to join the PTA we fear that Banchory Academy may not have a PTA after all you never know when your child may require funding.

fancy having a laugh and doing good for your child then come along join us and have lets all have laugh on the way.   Please contact the School reception for further details...

BAPTA Announcement

Gold Crest Award

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!
