Banchory Rotary Club held its annual Young Musician of the Year competition on Thursday
31st January. The new venue at Banchory Christian Fellowship Church was excellent.
The standard of playing for the fifteen pupils who took part was as high as ever
and the Judges had an unenviable task of declaring the winners. In the Vocal category
Melissa Drysdale came first and Amber Massie came second. Laura Smith won the instrumental
section and Imogen Leadbetter came second. They are now eligible to take part in
the next round of the competition. Huge congratulations go to all the participants
who provided a wonderful evening’s entertainment for the audience of two hundred
who gathered to enjoy some of Banchory’s best!
Young Musician of the Year
Some of the S1 pupils in the Art and Department entered the annual Edinburgh Fringe
Festival poster competition this year with great success.
Helena Grieve’s (1M2) poster has been chosen as the regional winner for Aberdeenshire.
Both Hannah Griffiths (1M2) and Zoe Barton (1L1) have had their designs shortlisted
for the exhibition which runs from 24th May to 26th August at the Museum of Childhood
on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. There were over 5000 entries this year so very well done
to all 3 girls!!
