Today, Woodland chaired the first Arch Alliance School Council. Woodland welcomed the schools from the Arch Alliance to begin to discuss our community project. As this was our first meeting, we began by talking about our individual qualities, before discussing our individual school values and how they can positively impact our community.
"Respect, proactive and positive" were strong themes running throughout.
