Elections for our Year Group Committees took place towards the end of September. Each Tutor Group can elect up to two members for each year group committee. The document below shows the formation of the Year Group Committees for Session 2013-14.
The first task of each Year Group Committee when they meet after the October break will be to nominate and / or elect their member(s) for the whole school Pupil Council, and to co-opt a teacher representative who will support and advise the work of each committee. Our Depute Head Boy and Girl are automatically members of the S6 Committee and are joint chairs of the Pupil Council.
One member of the Pupil Council is co-opted onto the Parent Council and vice-versa.
The work of the Year Group Committees and Pupil Council will be to ensure the education and well-being of all pupils at Charleston Academy is enhanced. The various groups may look at issues such as canteen queues, homework policy, class based learning intentions, awards etc. Each group will decide on their specific focus at their first meeting. Depute Rector Miss Rona Macpherson coordinates the meetings and work of our Year Group Committees and Pupil Council. She assisted by our Youth Development Officer.
