THE HOLLINS STUDENT COUNCIL
The Hollins student council is made up of three forums which are held each half term.
Year council – representatives from each tutor group will meet with their year team including their Head of Year. They discuss agenda items relevant to their year group. Matters that are not resolved at this meeting are then escalated as an agenda item to be resolved at the student council meeting where representatives from all years are present.
Student Council – is made up of representatives from ALL year groups and agenda items are brought forward by each year group. Minutes are circulated to form tutors by Mrs Johnstone. These minutes are fed back by form representatives.
Student Leaders – Any agenda items that are not resolved at Student council level are discussed with Mr Campbell at this meeting. Once again, minutes are then circulated back down to tutor groups which are fed back by form representatives.
