Would you like to work towards an internationally recognised award? You could be volunteering within the community, developing new or existing skills and going out on expedition as part of the award. If this sounds like the sort of thing you’d get involved with then sign up for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
If you’re in S3 – S6 then you can sign up to undertake either the Bronze or Silver, depending on your age, award within the school. Speak to members of the staff team – Mr McNicol or Mrs Kidson – if you’d like further information. Alternatively, you can view the participant information and register for award using the links below.
Well, we’ve made it to the end of a very busy academic session. We welcomed Ms Penrose as Rector in August; we saw our pupils head up The Polar Academy; we held our inaugural Senior Sportsman’s Dinner; the U18s football team swept all before them; our partnerships with business and the wider community were strengthened through a number of initiatives; we worked closely with our cluster primary schools; our pupils starred on the stage at the Byre Theatre; pupils participated in the Scottish Learners’ Panel, and our pupils achieved success in a number of activities at local, national and international level.
We’ve enjoyed every minute of the session and hope that you’ve enjoyed sharing in the achievements of our pupils and staff. We hope everyone has a great summer and we look forward to welcoming everyone back in August.
You can see all of our videos on the Bell Baxter HS YouTube channel.
The Leadership and Expeditions teams for our Polar Academy expedition to Greenland in 2020 now have their own Twitter account, @BBPolarAcademy, to support their fundraising and enabling them to share their journey with you.
Check out the group’s JustGiving page to learn more about this fantastic opportunity for our young people and to donate to the project.
The Global Goals Group want to say a huge thank you to our Support Services Co-ordinator, Miss Doig, for her unconditional support in all our ventures, always updating the website, Facebook and Twitter with news of our events. The work we do wouldn’t be possible without her help, and her presence will be greatly missed.
We wish you all the best in Banchory and we hope to keep in touch.
