Peterhead Fire Station

Some great pictures below from an excellent partnership event with Peterhead Fire Station. A group of our young people from S2 and S3 involved in a mock emergency yesterday, with all parents in attendance to watch. They did fantastically well.

Mintlaw Academy/Rennie Farms Partnership

“In honour of a long standing partnership between Mintlaw Academy and Rennie’s Farm Shop, Morag Rennie presented Mintlaw Academy (on behalf of the family business) with a new whole school pupil award in memory of her Mother-in Law Ina, who spearheaded the partnership. The inaugural award winner was S4 pupil Calvin Strachan for his endeavour and commitment to the Fresh start project, which Rennie Farm Shop have supported for many years through the provision of fresh produce to allow Mintlaw Academy pupils to engage in an enterprise project as part of their learning.”
