Whiteley Primary School

Young Governors

October 2016

This year the Young Governs have been very busy.  Over the last two years they have set up a film club for KS1 and KS2 children.  They have shown lots of interesting and popular films and raised over £2000.  The Young Governors decided they would like to spend the money on replacing broken equipment in the KS2 adventure playground.  The whole of KS2 have been enjoying using the new play equipment and the younger children will benefit from this as they move up the school.

LOOK OUT FOR MORE FILM EVENTS THIS YEAR!

The Young Governors had a trip to London and were able to tour around Westminster.  They had a workshop about “pupil voice” and met our local MP Suella Fernandes.  The Young Governors had the opportunity to ask questions about her job.
