Deeside school pupils put their creative skills to the test when they partook in what is now an annual event for the school.

Banchory Academy staged the Enterprise Challenge with year S2 working alongside local businesses to help develop creative and business skills with the pupils.

Among the local businesses involved were Tor-Na-Collie Hotel, Deeside Photographics, the Bay Chip Shop and Granite PR.

The S2 year was divided into four categories where a series of designs were completed.

One of the objectives was to design a front cover for a Banchory Academy School cook book.

The book will be sold locally and the proceeds will go to a chosen charity.

Another task was to design an advert for afternoon tea at the Tor-Na-Collie Hotel.

Another group designed a carry home box for the Bay Chip Shop in Stonehaven.

The last group had to create a starter dish, using locally sourced produce, with the winning dish being served at the Tor-Na-Collie in the spring.

The final took place at Banchory Academy and all the business people (from Bay Chip Shop, Tor-Na-Collie Hotel, Granite PR and Deeside Photographics) gathered to judge all the entries.

The wining starter was a noodle broth, created by 2T1 team: Rhea; Louise; Myles and Graham.
