By the close of nominations at the start of term, we had received one nomination for the vacant post on the Parent School Partnership. Under the rules, this means that no election is required and the nominee, Vicky Cole, is duly appointed!
Vicky is an experienced secondary school teacher with a child in first year at Knox. She is enthusiastically looking forward to contributing to the work of the PSP.
At next week’s AGM, an updated Parent School Partnership Constitution will be considered by the meeting to decide whether to adopt it. A copy of the draft can be read by clicking revised-draft-constitution.
The metting agenda can also be viewed by clicking agm2010agenda.
The Knox Academy Parent School Partnership will hold its AGM on Thursday the 21st of January in the school hall starting at 6-30pm. Please come along if you can. A report on the activities of the Partnership over the last year will be presented; the results of the membership election will be announced; and there will be an opportunity for parents to raise any matters.
We hope to see you there.
Early in the New Year the Knox Parent School Partnership (PSP) is hoping to arrange a meeting with the school to discuss the issue of the Knox Combined Cadet Force (CCF). We welcome comments from parents and interested parties on this issue which will be used to inform our discussions with the school. Comments can be submitted to this post. Comments already submitted can be read on our previous post on this subject.
The minutes of the meeting will be posted on this web site as soon as they become available. The Knox Academy PSP meet on a regular basis and copies of all minutes can be viewed at the following address
The last PSP meeting was held in Knox Academy on Wednesday 2 December 2009, the next meeting is scheduled for February 3rd, 2010.
The topic of the disbandment or otherwise of the Knox Academy CCF was not raised at the December meeting so news of the cessation of this activity has come with some surprise.
3rd of February Update:Thanks to all who submitted comments on this topic, which were very informative. We have now closed this post to further comments.
