Willowbank pupil council is now well established. The council is made up of a class representative from each class and all pupils in the Senior Phase. The agenda is pre-set and issued to classes prior to the meeting.
School Rules are often discussed and the opinion expressed that certain rules need to be reinforced to continue the positive ethos of Willowbank School.
Everyone is given an opportunity to contribute their ideas, make choices in what they do and learn and plan for school events.
Annual elections take place where all pupils and staff have the opportunity to ‘vote’ for their School Captain and Vice Captain.
The Eco initiative allows us to present a modern day Curriculum for Excellence where Eco targets are embedded into all areas of the curriculum includingEnterprise, Health Promotion and Citizenship.
Willowbank is the first school to hold Six Green Flags. Eco is very much part of our school ethos and there is a strong sense of community spirit with all parties including children, staff, parents, multi-disciplinary team and the local/wider community.
Pupils have received recognition for their efforts being Runners Up in the Active Citizenship category (Scottish Education Awards) and several classes have been awarded the Diana Memorial Award. The school has gained Fair Active status.
