Falmouth College has elected a new student presidency team for the next year following a tough interview process.

With the quality of applicants high, it was a difficult decision for the college team, but they eventually appointed Sam Holland as the new president, who will be deputised by Hannah McMillan-Pardoe and Millie Revell. Jack Pentecost will take up the new role of environmental lead.

The new team will begin their tenure when students return from the Easter holidays on April 16, taking over from the current team of Ruby James, Eleanor Daniell, Jonas Van-den-Heuvel and Amazon Doble. There will also be a formal handover process on April 18.

The new team’s first task, will be to welcome the new Falmouth College students by starting a mentoring scheme, to ensure next year’s year 12s are made welcome and have a smooth start. The new environmental lead, Jack, will be working to reduce single use plastics in the college and wider community.

Head of Falmouth College Dr Matt Fox said: “All four students who were appointed impressed the interview panel with their ideas and enthusiasm. We’re really looking forward to working with them to continue to make Falmouth College an excellent community and environmentally friendly place to be."
