Firstly, we apologise for the lack of update on this page recently. Minutes of meetings continue to be posted in the usual place (Meetings tab) but our web editor has had competing external demands which left little time for other posts. However, the good news is that our Facebook page has been revamped by parent Linda Stromberg and you will find a lot of useful and timely information over there. Look for the Banchory Academy Parent Forum page - please like and share posts that you find useful.
Although not yet reflected in this website, we have embarked on an overhaul of our communications and hope to have all improvements complete by the end of the 2017/2018 session. We are particularly grateful for the opportunity to use the school’s GroupCall messaging system to send Parent Council information to all parents directly; this is new to us this year and we hope has been useful.
Our March meeting scheduled for March 1st has been postponed due to the snow. It will now take place on March 15th (7pm in the school library).
Among other topics, we'll be covering the following:
- health & wellbeing working group
- improving Tillybrake field
- additional support needs
- links with primary schools
- how to support PTA fundraising
- how the community can keep land set aside for an eventual new academy
- effect of anti-social behaviour on the community
- update from literacy, numeracy & careers talks working group
Please don't hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any suggestions or queries. All parents/carers of Academy pupils are welcome at parent council meetings and no advance notice of attendance is required.
