Last week we gave the opportunity to pupils in 3rd to 6th class to present their ideas for the student council. We got amazing feedback from the pupils and it was great to hear their ideas. It was very difficult to decide who would be on the first student council of the year but in the end the following pupils made it on the council – Amy, Jay Jay, Brooke and Thomas. We look forward to working in partnership with the pupils for the benefit of the school.
