A belated Happy New Year and a quick update from the Parent Council.

  • Meetings - Our scheduled January 7th meeting was cancelled because of the adverse weather and early closure of the school. The next meeting will be the scheduled meeting on February 4th at 7pm in the school library. Please contact us with any agenda items. If you already raised something for the January agenda it will be carried forward to the February meeting. All parents/carers are very welcome at the meeting.

  • Homework Survey - If you haven't already done so, please find a few minutes to complete the online Banchory Academy Parent Survey on Homework - link to it from the main school website www.banchoryacademy.co.uk. There is also a pupil version, so everyone can have their say. S1-S3 take (or have taken) the pupil survey in school; S4-S6 should take it at home.

  • NPFS careers leaflet - The National Parent Forum of Scotland website is always a useful source of information for parents about education. Hard copies of their latest leaflet, Career Education: A World of Possibilities, will be distributed to all pupils via the school.
