They work hard to promote the academy in the community as well as keeping parents involved. Additionally promoting the work of the other prefect committees within the school.
The Fundraising Committee strives to raise awareness for worthwhile causes. Currently they have hosted a number of events which have raised generous amounts of funds for charities such as Macmillan. They hope to further raise for these charities as well as include others. They do a great job supporting charities and representing the school.
Peer Support Committee
Peer Support Committee helps others within in the school any way they can, aiming to encourage every pupil within the academy to achieve their best.

This is done by inviting primary 7 pupils up to the academy for guided tours, inductions and practical activities. They also go to these schools and speak to upcoming first years about the academy and reassure them on what life in the academy is like, they answer any questions pupils have.
