SAVE Our Youth Worker Posts!

The youth workers at Peterhead Academy, are at risk of losing their posts. Mrs Val Buchan and Mrs Julie Coban are very well respected and liked by the young people that they work with. We think that without their help and support, many of us could end up going to residential schools and not manage to stay at Peterhead Academy. If the Education Authority want to save money in the very short time and spend a lot of money in the long term making Val and Julie redundant is the way to go.
