AHS Parent Council Dear Parents/Guardians Since our last newsletter the Parent Council continues to be active on your behalf. We have met three times over the last six months and a parent member attended a joint meeting of the Shetland Parents Councils. We are delighted to have the continued support of local councillors Jonathan Wills and Cecil Smith at our meetings. We also appreciate the attendance of numerous council officials to keep us updated on recent developments. We are disappointed to be losing our clerk Zoe Anderson who has worked tirelessly on your behalf. Hopefully this position will be filled as soon as possible. We are also delighted to welcome four new members to the council, Donna Jack, Cathy Mann, John Fraser and Stuart Polson. The construction of the new AHS has been an ever present item on our agenda. Your Parent Council is anxious to hear about the three options of the new AHS Gateway process:

• • •

Do Nothing Refurbishment of existing school New build at Lower Staney Hill

At the time of writing, a new AHS seminar for parents is being organised for Monday 3rd October. Please do come along. You will have the chance to find out about the Gateway process and the implications of these options for our children. Details will be circulated nearer the time. Our Drugs and Alcohol Awareness Evening was held on 20th September 2011. The Head Teacher has continued to keep the council up to date regarding the integration of Scalloway pupils into the AHS. Thanks to all staff involved who have ensured that this has been a smooth transition. The Parent Council is looking forward to meeting with the newly elected SRC members who do a great job in representing student opinions and ideas. Members of your Parent Council will be in attendance at all forthcoming parent evenings in the school. Please feel free to come and air any concerns, issues etc which you may have over a cup of tea or coffee. Members of your Parent Council are as follows: Ms Catriona Barr Ms Lisa Crooks Ms Joyce Davis Mr Alex Fullerton Mr John Handley Ms Clare McMillan Ms Lise Sinclair Ms Sarah Taylor Ms Patricia Wright Ms Donna Jack Mr John Fraser Ms Cathy Mann Mr Stuart Polson Mr Michael Spence Miss Caroline Watt Mr George McGhee Miss Emily Shaw Miss Nicole Mowat Ms Valerie Nicolson Mr Cecil Smith Mr Jonathan Wills
