This year the school council have organised a sponsored run which they completed in conjunction with the World Marathon Challenge.  Schools, colleges and organisations from around the world worked in teams to run the marathon distance of 26 miles, 385 yards.  The school council split the distance into 100m sections which had to be ran 422 times.  We had a great day and raised £1547.  The money was used to buy 2 defibrillators for school.  

In December they organised a 'Wear a Christmas jumper day'.  Monies raised went towards buying treadmills.  

The council were busy in February arranging a Valentine's disco.  Everyone had a great time.  

With our friends from the Merseyside consortium, we have helped to make shoeboxes to send to children less fortunate than ourselves.  We attended an event at Liverpool Town Hall to celebrate our achievements.  

At the end of June we will visit Runcorn Town Hall to meet the Mayor, tour the Town Hall and view the council chambers.  

Elections will take place in early July for our school council who will begin their roles in September.
