Hello, my name is Ailsa Russell and I am the head girl of Clydeview Academy. As head girl I hope to bring positive change to the school and our surrounding community that will last for years to come. I hope to make Clydeview a more eco-friendly place as well as strengthening our school values and, most importantly, making sure that pupils have a great experience during their years at school. I will work alongside the head boy, depute head boy and girl and house captains to make a meaningful impact on our school community and represent the pupil voice.
I have been a part of Clydeview Academy since S1 and it has helped shape me into the optimistic person I am today. I also have a love for music which has been encouraged by the school and I have performed as part of the Clydeview String Ensemble at our school concerts on multiple occasions. Outwith school I am an active member of the Scouts and this has provided me with some incredible opportunities as well as teaching me valuable life skills.
If it wasn’t for the school and the amazing friends I’ve made over my years at Clydeview Academy I would not be the person I am today; that’s why in my sixth and final year I hope to enable others to have the same positive experience I have had and create memories that last. I can’t wait to work with everybody and see what we achieve together.
Hello, I’m Callum Charteris, and I am delighted to be able to say that I am your new Head Boy at Clydeview Academy. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity and can’t wait to work alongside teachers, the S6 leadership team, pupils and the wider community to make it a successful year for all.
Despite the infamous COVID-19 pandemic that happened midway through my years at Clydeview, I have still managed to take part in many things like the table tennis club, the football team and the Mentor in Violence Protection Programme. I have also managed to attain, with the help of our brilliant resources at Clydeview, great National 5 results and subject awards in Business Management and Computing Science. I hope to keep achieving and being involved as much as possible in my last year.
During my time as Head Boy, it is important to me that I maintain the inclusive environment of our school, making sure pupil voices are heard and acknowledged. I hope to continue to build good relationships with my peers so that they feel comfortable talking to me. I am looking forward to representing the school and working with our local community and parent council. As well as that, I will always be present at pupil and school council meetings to encourage pupil voice throughout all years at Clydeview Academy.
I am struggling to believe that I am into my final year at Clydeview, it has gone by so fast! I can’t wait to get started in my new role and make this a year to remember for us all.
