The Wilmslow Academy School Council 2023 -24
Here at The Wilmslow Academy, we have a strong pupil voice.Our School Council is well established and the council plays an active part in school life. We have twelve school council members from Year 2 right up to Year 6. The councillors meet regularly to plan events, discuss school issues and share ideas. They also talk with school staff such as Midday supervisiors to ensure all children enjoy happy break times.
The council is always active in supporting our classmates in understanding how to stay safe and healthy. Last year the council planned the activities that took place when fundraising for The Children's Hospital Pyjama Appeal. They are considered how to further expand the equipment available to children during break times and lunch for outdoor play which resulted in the ourchase of some outdoor musical instruments. The council for 2023-2024 have already been elected.
One of their first initatives was to reprsent the school at a visit to a local care home to connect with our community. A great time was had by all.
They have also consulted with their classes over new books the PTA would like to buy for each class: some great reading ahead!
Some of out coucillors represented the school at Handforth Remembrance Parade. They placed some of our crafted wreaths at the cenotaph.
