Parent Council

The Parent Council represents the Parent Forum, which comprises all parents and carers of pupils at Stromness Academy. We are a group of parents and staff who work with the school to assist and give opinions on a whole range of topics, as well as raise funds for the school.

Parent Council members are representatives of parents of pupils in each year group. Our office bearers are generally appointed at the Annual General Meeting but we meet approximately once a term and welcome participation from any interested parents or carers We invite you to get in touch at any time if you would like to get involved. We have children throughout the school years and are a friendly bunch who welcome new faces at any meeting without any invitation being necessary.

We have recently set up a fundraising sub-committee which focuses on fundraising events. Parents are very welcome to participate in this, whether as well as or instead of the main Parent Council meetings.

Stromness Academy

On Monday 21st June, pupils took part in their first Sports day since 2019, with great success! Pupils in every year group took part in athletics, rounders, football, hockey, fun events, netball, badminton, dodgeball and volleyball. It was great to see such healthy competition with pupils trying their best to win for their house and displaying excellent sporting conduct at the same time. In S2, R house ran out the winners with a particularly strong showing in the Athletics. In S3, M ran out the victors with particularly strong results in Badminton and Football. In S4, R won with strong results in Athletics and Fun Events. In S5/6, T took the victory after a slightly stronger showing in Athletics than other houses. Overall, R took home the Phil Mackay trophy with a winning total of 763 points, M were in 2nd place with 710 points and T in 3rd with 694 points. Well done to R!Finally, a special mention to Max Linklater who broke the S3 high jump record with a height of 1.56m.
