News of our next event from Margaret Alcorn, SELMAS convenor
It may be the summer, the sun may be shining, but for a small group of SELMAS people all thoughts are on Hallowe’en when we will have our first ever event designed to promote student leadership. In keeping with the date, the theme will be The scary world of student leadership: What will education and schools look like in 2023 and how will you play a role in leading that?. We will be inviting young people from primary and secondary schools and their teachers to come along to Larbert High School for a stimulating and challenging day of presentations, discussion and debate.

The SELMAS Committee (open invitation to join – all welcome!) is also beginning to look ahead to the annual SELMAS Conference which will be at Stirling Management Centre on November 19th. We are hoping to develop and extend the learning that emerges from the young people’s event and will be inviting delegates to look ahead to the many and significant changes that lie ahead for the Scottish education system. As always we’d love to hear any ideas, suggestions, thoughts you might have on how to make this a significant and positive contribution to the on-going education debate.
