Blog; Student Council updates.
Year 7 and 8 –A collaboration between Year groups has formed to raise money for important causes. Last term we did a fun run during our PE lessons and raised over £500 for the school minibus and Dementia UK. This term we are currently underway with planning a Sweet tooth sale raising money for St Gemma's hospice.
Year 9 – Planning for Sports week has begun which will take place in June. This is a whole school event where each year has its own sports day. We have agreed on the format and over the next few weeks will be sending information out to form tutors
Year 10 – After our successful Children in Needs fundraising last term we have been gathering information from our year group on things they would like to change in school. On Tue 25th April, 8 students attended the Leeds Youth Summit at Leeds Civic Hall. The event was focused on getting students interested in politics, in particular the issue of voting from age 16. We had the opportunity to meet 7 out of the 99 Councillors of Leeds from across 33 wards.
Year 11 – We are planning from our leavers prom and gathering photos and quotes for the leavers book. We have ordered our leavers hoodies ready for the leavers assembly.
Each year group’s student council members will be meeting once a week during form time to give them the time to put these ideas into action. A whole school student council meeting will also take place at least twice a term where we hope to see both competition and collaboration between the different year groups.
The new councillors can be seen around school wearing their new badges with pride with each year group voting for their representative through an election with a twist; instead of voting for their favourite student they voted for their favourite manifesto. Students from all year groups entered in some fantastic manifestos with really creative policies and we look forward to seeing the councillors take their ideas forward and lead the agenda for change.
