Mr Holt with this update on the first School Council meeting of the year:
“What a way to kick off the School Council Year! Eighty-eight students packed the boardroom area of the Adshead Hall after school on Thursday and got down to business. Outgoing chairperson Oliver Donnelly (Year 12) welcomed new members and led a review of last year’s events and achievements (of which there were many!).
A review of our end of year festivities and Wellyfest were on the agenda and this year’s event is sure to benefit from the ideas put forward. However, it was our charity involvement which set most pulses racing. Students have been asked to start nominating a local charity which may benefit from our annual sponsored walk in February and discussions around this will spill over into tutor time next week.
Finally, applications are open for new members to join the Executive Committee and letters should be with Mr Holt by next Friday at the latest.”
