We had a great first meeting of the Compass Council last week, and received a warm welcome from the South Rise Compass Council members, who were hosting the meeting. The children shared the opportunities they had had to experience the 11 before 11 in their schools. They agreed that we needed to do more towards learning First Aid and life-saving skills, cooking a health meal, and giving back to the community. The children then discussed ideas for capturing the experiences they are having across the schools and focusing on a couple of the areas each month, using photos and pupil voice to showcase their experiences. Finally, the children discussed ideas for generating income for particular projects such as creating a new dance studio or a soft outdoor surface for sports. We are excited to see how their ideas will be brought to fruition over the course of the year!
