Introduction

Your school has been given a grant of �10,000 from the govt. Of behalf of your year group, write a letter to your head-teacher to offer advice on how the school should spend it. Dear Mr English, I am writing to you, on behalf of Year Eleven, with the intention of offering advice on how best to spend the government grant. As students of the school, we play an intimate role in college life; I therefore believe our input will be most beneficial to you. The most important issue is to outline factors that need to be addressed. They include: providing more advanced sporting equipment; installing interactive facilities in the classrooms; improving school meals and focussing on making our school more 'environmentally friendly'. Every child, whether they are a boy or girl, has an innate passion for sport; they enjoy kicking balls around the playground and exercising on treadmills. ...read more.

I am not saying last years results of eighty percentage A's and A*'s is anything to be ashamed of, on the contrary; I am suggesting that we could improve this accolade to eighty five or ninety percent - tell me this is not an advantage! School meals. What a disaster. I am sure you remember last year's complaints from the parents and students; the noisy protests that disrupted your meetings? A portion of this money could be spent on allowing our food to taste cooked; allowing our food to be served warm and allowing the fruit we eat to taste something other than mouldy. Cheap and practical solutions are available: employing cooks rather than allowing the chemistry teachers to cook our dinner might be a start! Installing ovens rather than using electric heaters to warm up the food would give us the benefit of hot meals. ...read more.

Conclusion

half thousand pounds on the sport facilities; three thousand pounds on interactive classroom facilities; two thousand on supporting the new lunches scheme - some of this, however, will have to be funded by the school bill (not that this is not the case at the moment!). The cost of focussing on the environment is minimal, but it could have immense effects. The best thing about my scheme is that there is surplus money, leaving you with the opportunity to improve factors that suite you! If you follow the advice I have given, you could: improve the student's exam grades by five to ten percent; improve the schools reputation; prevent students from getting diarrhoea; provide your students with more enjoyable break-times and, possibly, improve the general behaviour of the pupils. I hope you found my advice helpful and pray you don't find my comments concerning the current lunch scheme too offensive. Yours, J. S ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
