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!

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.
