The Student Council - posted 8th Feb
Soar Valley College has a new Student Council! This is a convenient way for the student body to share their ideas on how they would like to continue Soar Valley College to be an outstanding school.
There is a new system for students to make suggestions. Firstly, the student body will give suggestions to their Form Representatives who will then deliver the ideas to the 12 members of the School Council. Each year group has 2 student councillors to represent them. The Student Council have also installed a suggestion box that can be found outside the Welfare Office. The aim of this box is to give the students various ways to share their ideas. Two student councillors haiukve been given the responsibility of checking this box regularly.
Head Boy-Om Kathrecha, Head Girl-Nada Mohamed, Assistant Head Boy-Kushal Parsh Mehta and Assistant Head Girl-Devika Tailor will then discuss key suggestions with the senior leadership team. Suitable proposals will then be discussed with the relevant bodies who will hopefully be able to help accomplish the change that the students wish to acquire. The 4 student leaders will then convey the new changes to the student body via the Student Bulletin, The Newsletter, The School Website and The Twitter Account.
We hope you have a lovely half term and we hope to keep you updated.

MFL Christmas Competition - posted 14th Dec
We were all amazed when we received this outstanding entry for the MFL Christmas competition from Sahana Anpukanthan in 7.5. All the languages teachers gathered around the cake and there were many admiring comments, with full agreement that it was the most beautiful Christmas cake ever seen! Hopefully you will notice the shoes; on Christmas Eve French people put their polished shoes at the bottom of the tree, Father Christmas then puts the presents on top of these and hopefully they are completely. The remaining question was who is going to eat the cake? Sorry everyone, students in 7B2 have that pleasure next lesson.Read more »
