Banff Academy pupils enjoyed their day at Haddo House on Tuesday 11th June, playing in Drake Music’s concert, ‘Book of Beasts.’ Our ensemble consisted of three xylophones, a guitar, accordion, iPad and triangle. Many other Aberdeenshire schools were also there and their audience was treated to a fantastic show of new music and colourful visuals depicting the ancient Book of Beasts, a medieval text kept in Aberdeen University. We’ll done Joshua, Rebecca, Carrie, Buddy, Niall and Robin whose playing was excellent.
Well done to a number of our S3 (new S4) boys on their fantastic football achievement. The Deveronvale U15’s completed their season not only winning the league but being undefeated for the whole season winning all 24 League games. Congratulations Ahren Duncan, Steven Jamieson, Logan Cumming, Leyton Boyd, Lewis Edward, Brook Whyte, Brook Duncan, Bruce Esslemont, Bailey McLennan, Jordan Johnston, Gary Noble and Rhys Irish. A fantastic achievement, well done boys!
