26th November 2021- Meeting

The new School Council met for the first time today. We started by drawing our portraits for the web site.

We talked about the new school menu and how the Council need to ask their classes what sort of meals they would like to see on the new menu. We also looked at the Pupil Survey and the Council found out how to help their classes to complete it.

Finlay told us that we would like us to plant some more flowers in school that would attract butterflies and the Council agreed to go away and find out the sort of things we need to plant.
