In the Wildground Federation we believe that the involvement of our children is important in our drive to continually improve our learning environment and school community.

- have the opportunity to let the grown-ups know their feelings and opinions about things that affect them
- have a say about decisions and play an active role in making their school a better place
- develop life skills through participating
