The Woodlands Sport Committee consists of one learner from each academic year. The committee are designed to create a unique environment which develops a sense of ownership and belonging for all young people involved. The group meets twice every term with the purpose of promoting healthy activities in school and planning events. This is a club owned by learners to help them develop a sense of initiative and responsibility.
