150 Inspiring Teamwork Quotes To Motivate Employees In 2021

Last week our Pupil Council and House Captains Team met to work together to tackle what they decided should be their first job- playground resources!

Together they audited the equipment we currently have, cleared out and removed any equipment that was unusable, and made a wish list of some new equipment they would like to put in our Quiet Area.

They worked so well together! The resource cupboard was cleared, cleaned and re-organised really swiftly! Some of their wish list items have already been ordered, or sourced from our staff.

Next, the Pupil Council reps will be asking their classes for their ideas and input into new resources. Look out for a letter from them in the new term asking for any donations of old games and resources. The House Captains will have responsibility for managing and supervising the use of our playground resources, so they can look forward to that challenge in the new year!

Here are some photos of these 2 pupil groups working so well together. Well done to everyone for helping.
