OUR NEXT MEETING – ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
Tuesday 2 November at 7pm
If you wish an invitation to the online meeting, please contact our email address, below.
Welcome to our PARENT FORUM!
All parents and carers of the students of Speyside High School make up The Speyside Parent Forum.
All parents and carers are welcome to attend Parent Council and Parent Forum meetings.
We need as many people involved as possible. Everyone is appreciated, no matter how small you feel your contribution can be.
Please come and join us!
SPEYSIDE HIGH SCHOOL PARENT COUNCIL
Speyside High School’s Parent Council has been in existence since August 2007, replacing the previous School Board, under the terms of the Parental Involvement Act.
The Key purpose of the Parent Council is to ensure that parents and carers are involved in and consulted about the life of the school as much as possible. We aim to involve and support parents and carers as best we can, to help the whole school community.
The Parent Council meets at least once each term. The Parent Council members and office bearers are elected at the Speyside Parent Forum Meeting and Parent Council AGM each September.
At least 6 parents or carers, chosen from the Parent Forum
Two senior students, two members of staff, at least one of them a teacher, and one other member of the community
The Head Teacher, in an advisory capacity.
The Moray Councillors for Speyside will be invited to attend each meeting.
The input of EVERYONE involved is very much valued.
THE CURRENT COUNCIL
Due to the difficulties of the past year and the fact that membership of the council in the previous year was largely made up of parents of students who have now left, a Speyside High School Parent Forum meeting did not occur to choose council members until January 2021. An interim set of co-officers is currently working on re-igniting the flame of the Parent Council.
|Co-Chairs||Elidh Myrvang-Brown & Liz Egan|
The geographical area SHS covers obviously makes attending in-person meetings hard for some. During the 2020/21 school year online meetings allowed parents to be involved, who might in normal times have found it difficult to attend or take part in Parent Council and Parent Forum meetings.
When in-person meetings are allowed to re-start, we may still keep the option for those interested to attend via an online meeting in order to allow a greater proportion of the Parent Forum to take part in the Parent Council and Speyside Parent Forum.
Meetings are currently being held via Zoom or Microsoft Teams. If you do not have the app on your computer or Mobile, links to download the app are:
