Andrew Tennant – Vice Chair & S2 Rep

As a parent of an S1, S2 and S4 I want to play a role in the parent council to help improve the outcomes for children.  Asking the big questions and challenging why!  Most importantly I want to work together to ensure children have equality and justice while being educated in today’s world.
