    • Post on our Facebook page titled ‘our improving school’
    • Bring your ideas to school and hand them into the office. Please mark it ‘our improving school’
    • Share your ideas with your class rep for them to bring along to the next meeting.

If you have ideas as to how you can get more involved with improving our school we would really love to hear from you, please ask to speak to me. Learn Well Live Weel
