Another beginning to the school year and another exciting intro-duction to all the new faces of student council, including the new chairs Holly Chapman, Robert Gadsby and India Francis-Crossley from Year 13. We began our first meeting with ice breaker activities, in order to make sure everyone’s voice is heard. To kick start the year, each year group put forward a presentation on their chosen charity that they would like the money raised from non-uniform days to be donated to. The three successful bids selected by student coun-cil were the RNLI, the Nottingham Oxygen Centre and Autism East Midlands. The inten-tion is to also raise money through cake sales and other activities, such as name the teddy and sensory games. One final thank you and congratulations must be given to all the bid teams for their hard work as all the presentations were to a very high standard from year 7 all the way through to year 11.
