We were fortunate enough to have three candidates who put themselves forward to stand for election to the Official Scottish Youth Parliament this year – Elliot (S5), Monty (S3) and Lillie (S3). They worked incredibly hard on their campaigns and spoke well to large groups at school assemblies and other events in the community. All three candidates wish to thank the teachers and pupils of Wellington School for supporting them.
We are delighted to announce that Elliot was elected as an MSYP for the Ayr constituency. Lillie was also elected in East Ayrshire as MSYP for Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley. They can’t wait to begin their work in earnest to represent young people in their respective communities.
