Student Council Update!

Student Council participated in their very first meeting yesterday and although we are starting off slightly later in the year, it is clear that this group of students have great ambitions and lots of energy to fulfil them! Miss. O´Fee and CCEP educators Sigrid and Caro will meet with this group of eager student representatives each week. One of the first tasks was for students to reflect on the work of the Winter Market this year and where proceeds will go. The Student council agreed that they would like to continue the work done in previous years with the Berlin based organisation, Akinda, and all proceeds raised by the Primary School students at the Winter Market would be donated to this project. Student representatives will be reporting back to their classes each week following the student council meeting and sharing ideas and raising issues More Information can be found below.
