Our Junior section is an empowering and vibrant learning community where each of our students discovers who she is, who she wants to become and how she will make a positive difference in the world. Through leadership opportunities, students energise one another, and our Junior School Council plays a big part in this. Working with peers in their classes, each councillor explores interests and contributes to a wide range of opportunities, developing talents and exercising leadership skills.
So far this academic year, the Junior School Council have arranged: a student quiz which was popular with all students who worked together with enthusiasm and excitement, a seasonal Reindeer Run raising funds for Wakefield Hospice and an Easter Cookie competition where winning designs will be created by our catering team as a special Easter treat. The councillors have also worked with the catering team to feedback on student views about our menus, helping to shape future catering options.
The councillors meet fortnightly with Year 5 teacher Mr Bray, who helps to chair meetings and guide the girls to become confident and articulate leaders. Our Junior Director (Mr Rowley) meets termly to discuss ideas for school improvements.
Well done to our Junior School Council !
