The School Council had a very busy meeting today. They discussed what to fundraise for this year (as a starting point) and the events that the school had suggested in assembly that they would like held.

A new school year – a new School Council!


Last year, the School Council raised money to buy a Friendship bench.

They had two cake sales, a stall at the Christmas Fair in December and another stall at the Summer Fair. They bought the bench after Easter and decorated it to make it look more friendly. A big thank you for all their hard work.


With a new school year, we have a new set of School Councillors.

 Welcome to Lizzie, Charlie, Jenna, Izzy, Angus and Ros!


They have been busy finding out what Westwood school would like to fund-raise for this year. Their questions, posed to the whole school in assembly and in class discussions will result in a decision this coming week. The school community came up with some ace ideas and some great fundraising events they would like to take place.

So far this term (we are only at the end of week 3), the School Council have been busy – they have had two meetings, a whole school assembly and a litter pick in the vegetable garden.

Our next meeting is on Tuesday 27th September at 1:20pm on Orchid. Please leave any ideas below for the School Council to discuss.
