Last year's school councilors worked incredibly hard as a team to make some brilliant positive changes around school and organised many great events. We started our year with a trip to Westminster to learn more about the democracy of our society. This has helped with our teamwork when having to reach final decisions. Thanks to the school council we have been involved in discussions about how to improve our school, initiated new play time rules and routines agreed by the children and introduced a new 'marvellous manners' reward around school. One of our favourite projects was organising and leading the 'Woodloes got talent' competition where we watched and rated incredible talent from every year group. We also invited the professional sports team 'Wasps' to visit our school where KS1 and KS2 enjoyed a day with members of their netball team. In the summer term, we had fun designing a stall for the summer fair 'Guess the name of the donkey'. We raised over £60 with this great idea to support the Friends of Woodloes funds.
We also put much effort into raising money for some chosen charities:
Autumn A: £314.83 raised at our Macmillan coffee morning
Autumn B: £722 raised for Children in Need
Spring A: £200.03 for the Warwickshire air ambulance
Spring B: £920 for comic relief
Summer: £260 with a 'shades day' for Guide Dogs
