Year 9 Democracy in Action

Following the successful election of our Year group representatives, each of the new candidates were given the opportunity to put their names forward to represent the Year group at the whole College council. Colbie, Hayden, Ray and Billy all presented their manifestos in assembly by giving a short speech to their Year group, or in Hayden’s case a prerecorded video! 

Each tutor group had also previously nominated a charity that they would like to be considered for the Year group to support, the nominations were: 
  • The Little Princesses (who provide real wigs to children who have lost their hair) 
  • Cancer Research UK
  • St Luke’s, Keep me close (neonatal intensive care unit at Derriford) 
  • Meningitis Research 
  • Support for raising the profile of the Meningitis Research Foundation through sponsoring an ex-student to climb Kilimanjaro 
The winners of the College council and Year group charity were decided through tutor group voting which were collated and announced in assembly.

Congratulations to Billy Smith and Colbie Bishop and the Year group charity Cancer Research UK.

I look forward to working with the Year group representatives to decide on how we can raise funds to support Cancer Research UK.
