Another big campaign last year was on social spaces. We met with the Deputy Principal who agreed we could make better use of the sspace at college. We got students to make more outdoor benches which will be in place for September 2016. The Deputy Principal agreed that we need to upgrade the Wroxham canteen as it is one of our biggest yet probably most unattractive social spaces. We have already put some board games in there and we are looking into plans for getting some comfy furniture in there too.
We did look in to using classrooms during lunch breaks as common rooms however this proved really difficult. This is because there are so many classrooms around the college and each day they are used at different times by different people. Therefore it would be really tricky to organise and the rooms would have to change every day. Also there was a problem in deciding who would be responsible for monitoring behaviour and making sure the rooms stayed tidy for the next lesson.
Please feel free to give us suggestions for improving the college's social spaces.
