The minutes from the AGM and the September 2016 meeting are now available via the Meetings tab.

Three particular points of note:

  • New members - We welcome Alfi Smith, Colin Macelod and Jacqueline Conroy to the parent council. For a full list of 2016/17 members, see Who we are.
  • Homework - You'll see from the minutes that Depute Colin Nicoll attended the meeting to discuss the results of the Banchory Academy homework working group's survey. To read the survey report, click Homework Survey findings
  • Traffic safety is a great cause of concern at present and we want to keep all members of our community safe. The main problems are risky behaviour by youngsters out and about in the village at lunchtimes and by vehicles in the school car park. After the meeting, Cllr Jill Webster contacted the local police regarding a safe parking/drop-off initiative that runs elsewhere in Aberdeenshire. We hope to introduce something similar for Banchory. 

The next parent council meeting is on Thursday October 6th at 7pm in the school library.
