Not In Our Name
Our student representatives were asked to leave a board meeting where a decision was taken to suspend our Principal, Susan Walsh. Given student representatives were not present when this decision was made, we would like to state categorically that this decision is Not In Our Name.
Furthermore, the manner in which the decision was reached is contrary to good practice within the sector and, more importantly, a possible breach of the "Colleges Scotland Code of Good Governance" which clearly states:
"Staff and student board members are full board members and bring essential and unique skills, knowledge and experience to the board. Staff and student board members must not be excluded from board business unless there is a clear conflict of interest in common with all board members."
Our collective voice cannot be silenced in this manner.
We urge you to lend your name to this petition against the undemocratic actions taken by the Board of Management against our elected Student Leaders and our suspended Principal.
