Scottish Youth Parliament Elections

Congratulations to Michael Low who was elected as a member of the Scottish Youth Parliament on Friday 25th March.  Commiserations to Alia Ghafar who was a close runner up.  Both pupils carried out excellent campaigns and took a large percentage of the votes from across the secondary schools involved.  Michael and Alia will also participate in the East Dunbartonshire Youth Senate.

We were delighted to have two S4 pupils, Alia Ghafar and Michael Low, standing for the Scottish Youth Parliament Elections for the Strathkelvin and Bearsden Area. Voting took place on Tuesday 15th March when almost 1000 pupils voted for their choice of candidate. This is a great opportunity for our pupils to have their voice heard nationally and to help participate in shaping the future of the country.
