The School Council were recently invited to have Afternoon Tea with Mrs Kingman. They were eager to use the time wisely and prepared by choosing some important points to raise. The School Council enjoyed some delicious cakes made by Mrs Gower and were all actively involved in discussing what they would like to see achieved by the new School Council this year.
Several points were raised, such as making improvements to outdoor environment as well as being eager to engage in and initiate a community project. The School Council also discussed our upcoming School's Parliament week and spoke about options for voting, petitions and debates within our school. The School Council are looking forward to our next meeting where we can start to put our ideas into action!

On Tuesday, we went to Buckingham Palace to explore and have a wonderful tour. Sadly, there was no Queen to be seen, but we got to have a sneak peek at all of her luxurious belongings. Willow and Emma absolutely loved seeing the gold-crusted ceremonial carriage while Aaliyah felt regal as she climbed the royal stairs to view Queen Victoria’s family portraits.
On Monday 23rd September our newly elected School Council made their way to London to visit the Houses of Parliament.
