Whave informed students about the ISSU survey on Covid in schools. We have discussed issues that year groups have brought up including eating arrangements. We have had several meetings with Ms. O’Rourke about issues that have arisen in school. One of the major policies we have discussed has been the new uniform policy of the introduction of trousers. As a group we have discussed potential designs and ideas for the new trousers 

We organised our 12 Days of Christmas competition in December in collaboration with the music department. The competition was a huge success, each year got involved with answering the festive questions. We would like to say a massive thank you to all the students who got involved in our competition.  

Most recently, we have begun the process of organising ISIC cards for Maryfield students, which will begin this week. If you would like an application form make sure to come and collect it from us before the due date.
