Well done School Council, you were shiny ambassadors for St Martin's!
School Council Educational Visit to Houses of Parliament, September 2017: Part of the School Council had a successful trip to London to visit the Houses of Parliament. The day was very busy. They were lucky enough to see a live debate in the House of Commons, tour the palace of Westminster and had a workshop about Campaigning - which they hope to use during the year. They also met our MP John Penrose who kindly talked to the School Council about his job as an MP and answered their questions. The children were a credit to the school, and families, and thoroughly enjoyed this trip.

Worle Community School Photography Project
During Term 3 the School Council took part in a photography project with Worle Community School, which involved taking photographs of school life, which will be used to illustrate our school's vision statements. These will eventually be displayed around the school. The children were then invited to Worle's Apple Suite, where they edited their pictures. This was an exciting project and a chance for our children to be taught by staff and children from Worle.
