NEW starters at St Aidan’s Technology College have been given the opportunity to represent their schoolmates by stepping up for the school’s leadership team.

Three representatives were chosen from 10 candidates after giving a short speech to their peers on issues and ideas on how to improve life at school.

The chosen trio were keen environmentalist Anna Jenkinson, 11, from Stalmine, who hopes to improve the school’s green credentials, Aled Hughes and problem solver Douglas Burke.

Douglas said: “I have got a lot of good ideas that I want to tell people about and think that being part of student leadership will help me show off my ideas.” Head of Year 7 Mrs Bernie Johnson said: “These three gave very good presentations and definitely are the community representatives of the future.”
