Students from the Trust’s two secondary schools came together last term to discuss the establishment of a Trust Student Council. Meetings were held at Winsford and Fallibroome Academies to allow students to introduce their schools to their peers and discuss possible actions for a joint Council.

The Council will focus on joint actions to improve Recycling and worked up ideas for a Trust-wide ‘Pledge’ of opportunities that students would be able to undertake in their secondary years.

They also agreed to connect with Fallibroome’s partner schools in South Africa and enjoyed meeting their fellow Council members at Grabbouw High School in a Skype conference last week.

Trust students and staff were shocked to hear of a tragedy at a school near to Grabbouw which resulted in the death of four students.We have sent our condolences and support via a Facebook link and encourage all our readers to do the same.
