Every child at Winmarleigh is a member of our School Council.
Each year children prepare speeches and vote to elect a Chairperson and Vice Chairperson.
This year's Chairperson is Joshua and the Vice Chairperson is Jasmine.
The photographs below show some of the most recent things the Council have planned, organised or purchased with funds they have raised.
Each year the children have a project that they decide on at the start of the year. Things they have worked on included a project to rebuild and develop the pond outdoor area of school. They were supported by Mrs Darling in securing funding, and by the Wyre Countryside Ranger - Greg Robinson -who was very helpful and arranged for all the hard work to be carried out by his team of volunteers. They have also designed and comissioned a bench to be made for the front of school.
Last year's project was to improve the playground. Children held fundraising activities and purchased benches, chalk boards and new friendship signs for the playground.
Recent events include a vegetable stall where children sold the vegetables they grew in the school garden.
