A message from Cara Cameron, the school’s Youth Development Worker…
I just wanted to send a quick email to highlight how proud I am of the young people who attended Thursdays area youth conference in Lairg. Craig, Chelsea and Tom attended as Sutherland youth forum representatives. Part of the day was allocated to elections for Highland youth parliament representatives and it was with great delight that Tom stood for election. Tom only had half hour to compose a speech but what an amazing job he did. So out of 8 standing for election and only 4 official places Tom was elected as a HYP reserve. Although Kieran was unable to attend the day, Craig and Chelsea had composed a speech for Kieran on his behalf as Kieran had also expressed an interest in standing. Kieran never made it into the main 4 but he did get onto the reserve reserve list J.
The role of Highland youth representative is a vital link between young people and the higher policy makers so not to be taken lightly and holds a lot of reasonability. I would ask that Tom is given full support in his role. It is a privilege to have Tom supporting our school and community in this role.
