Pupils go to polls to elect cap­tain

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News -

Elect­ing a new school cap­tain proved to be a tough task for pupils at Air­drie Acad­emy.

Com­pe­ti­tion for the pres­ti­gious role was fierce due to the high stan­dard of can­di­dates in con­tention.

But fol­low­ing a“rig­or­ous se­lec­tion process”, Eman Qasim was the wor­thy win­ner cho­sen to rep­re­sent her fel­low stu­dents for the whole of the 2017/18 school ses­sion.

Ev­ery great leader needs a strong sup­port sys­tem, though, and Eman will be as­sisted by her vice-cap­tains, Re­becca Mor­gan and Katie Laing.

The trio are all“in­cred­i­bly ex­cited” to be cho­sen to fill the im­por­tant posts and they are pic­tured (above) with proud Air­drie Acad­emy head teacher Martin An­der­son.

A school spokesper­son said:“We wish Eman, Re­becca and Katie all the very best for a suc­cess­ful school ses­sion.

“They came out on top of a rig­or­ous se­lec­tion process to se­cure their new roles and were thrilled when they found out the news.

“Be­ing cap­tain and vice-cap­tains at the school is hugely im­por­tant and we’re sure all three girls will do a won­der­ful job.”
