School Council Training

Our annual school council training happened last week with each year group coming together to get to know one another and build key skills that will be used throughout the year in school council. The morning was planned and delivered by our fabulous Head Girls and Sixth Form Exec leads.

We began with team building and ice breaker exercises such an the human knot and if you were stranded on a desert island with said items which would you priorities to use and why would you use them. This section of the morning finished with the famous spaghetti tower building game which is now synonymous with school council training. Lots of fun was had by all and an extra element was added this year, extra points were awarded to the year group who were the tidiest. Year 8 & 9 were fantastic at this 🙂

We then spent time explore the year group focuses which are as follows:

Yr 7: How can we improve transition into secondary school.

Yr 8: Reforming and developing the buddy system

Yr 9: Celebrating Global Learning days

Yr 10: exploring options for a new rewards assembly

Year 11: The AGGS News Blog.

Well done to all involved it was a great morning and I sense this is going to be a great year for school council 🙂
