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.
Recently, the Global Goals Group started collecting used crisp packets to be recycled. We are doing this with the help of TerraCycle and Walkers. Every time we send crisp packets to TerraCycle, they will make a donation to MacMillan Cancer Support on our behalf.
We look forward to recycling many more crisp packets next term and ask pupils to bring in their own packets from home, rather than sending them to landfill. You will find the recycling station in front of our Eco noticeboard in the Dining Hall.
We would like to pass on our thanks to Castlehill PS for collecting crisp packets to be donated to the recycling scheme.

The Global Goals Group marked World Refugee Day last week by raising money at Sports Day. The group managed to raise the magnificent amount of £230 which will now be donated to the Scottish Refugee Council.
Well done to everyone for raising awareness of the work undertaken by the Scottish Refugee Council.
Health & Wellbeing staff would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone, pupils and staff, who participated in and/or supported all of the House matches and athletics finals this week. There was a great turn out for events and the faculty were impressed by the support athletes received from the crowd.
Congratulations to this year’s sports champions:
S1 – Ruari Barr and Maya Knight
S2 – Fraser Lessels and Karina Costner
S3 – Hamish Barr and Aimee Williamson
Senior – Mackenzie Williamson and Niamh Crofts
The House Sports Champions were Howe.
Thank you to World Challenge for their help selling ice creams on such a hot day, with the Global Goals Group also raising funds to mark World Refugee Day.
Well done to everyone for making the event such a success!
The Global Goals Group held their inaugural pupil-led Climate Action Conference on Tuesday. The aim of the conference was to share the work undertaken by the group this year and to look at developing activities/partnerships for Session 2019-20.
Pupils invited members of local action groups, elected members, members of the Parent Council and other partners into the school, in order to deliver presentations about the work undertaken this year. A lot has been achieved by group with planning for new projects already in the pipeline.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the group this year. If you’d like to join the group, please just speak to a member of the staff team, or pop along to one of our weekly meetings.
Ms Pour, Mrs Harvie & Mrs Kerr
