OpportunityTwo of our long-standing members, Peter Wise and Clare Gordon are stepping down at the end of this term as neither of them will have children left at the school next session. Peter has been our chairperson for the last few years, and Clare has been a year rep and also a parent rep on the school's Health and Wellbeing committee. Our heartfelt thanks go to both of them for their sterling service.

We are therefore looking for replacements for both positions for the 2015/2016 session. Anyone from the Parent Forum (that's all of you who have children at Banchory Academy, not just current members of the Parent Council) can volunteer. If this might interest you, why not contact one of us to find out more? Next year's Parent Council will be constituted at the annual Parent Forum meeting in September (Thursday September 3rd at 7.00pm).
