Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has hailed the performances of competing schools in Banff & Buchan after attending the Aberdeen round of the Global Rock Challenge, a drug and crime prevention vehicle in the form of a performing arts competition for secondary schools. The event is run by the Be Your Best Foundation, a registered charity.

The two-day event saw pupils from Peterhead Academy, Banff Academy and Fraserburgh Academy all put in strong performances that led to them winning several awards.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“I have supported the Global Rock Challenge for several years now, but every year I am consistently impressed by the standard of performances. It is wonderful to see this competition go from strength to strength, and I am delighted to have been able to see local schools compete again.

“Banff Academy and Peterhead Academy’s pupils were excellent when I saw them, and I am sure that Fraserburgh Academy’s performance the following day must have been extremely good as they finished in second place on their day. The competing pupils really were a credit to their schools and their local communities.

“The Global Rock Challenge is a wonderful initiative that pupils from throughout the region enjoy taking part in, and I am sure that the future holds only further success for it”.
