Alwoodley Youth Summit

On Friday, 7 children from Years 4, 5, and 6 attended the Alwoodley Youth Summit hosted by Allerton High School.

Almost 70 children from local primary and secondary schools attended the summit where they learned about democracy and had the opportunity to ask Councillor Cohen lots of questions.

The children also played the shopping game deciding in order of preference which activities that they would like to take place in the area with their budget of £20,000 (this is the figure that Leeds City Council have available to spend on children’s events and activities in the Alwoodley area).

Lastly in groups they prepared and gave a presentation on an event or activity that they would like to spend the money on.

Following the summit the organisers will be discussing all the children’s ideas and will look at their preferences before deciding on how they will spend the money.


Festive Jumper Day



to everyone who came to school today wearing their festive jumper and donated £1.

Meeting – 6th December

This afternoon, School Council talked about the forthcoming Festive Jumper Day (Monday 11th December) and also completed evaluation forms for Leeds City Council Health & Wellbeing Department following the Recycling Workshop that the councillors had recently attended.

It was also last meeting before the Christmas holidays so School Council decided to pose for a silly photo.

Next meeting Wednesday 10th January 2018.
