Our student leaders are making a lasting impact!
One of the ways in which students have a voice in the decisions that drive our school is through the Board of Directors. Each term, one child from each Year 1 to Year 6/7 class is selected at random to serve on the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors provides students with an authentic experience of leadership, as they meet weekly with David, our Head of Learning and Teaching to discuss, plan and implement ideas to improve the school.
At our first Chapel of the new term last week, our Term 3 Board of Directors shared the meaningful action they have taken to restore and implement the use of our playground ‘Buddy Benches’. This video shows the process the Board of Directors went through and includes a role play the students chose to create to inform their peers about how the Buddy Benches can be used to help ensure nobody at Annesley is left out at playtimes. Another initiative from our Term 3 Board of Directors which is coming to fruition is the establishment of a student Art Gallery at the entrance to Gillingham Hall. The students wrote to Luke to secure funding for the project. New picture frames have been purchased to and our first exhibits of outstanding student artworks should be on display by the end of next week.
Term 4 sees a new team of Directors take up the mantle, we look forward to seeing what their impact will be!
