Suggestions for the new student common room

Introduction

This report is to recommend a room in the school for a student common room.

Location of the common room

The most popular choice is S1 next to the library. This room is big enough to be used as a common room and perfect for students studying in the library.

Furniture and decoration

Most of the furniture could come from the tables and chairs that are stored in S1 at present. Several students have also said that they have old furniture that they can give to the school.

The room needs painting, but students from the Art department have offered to paint during the summer holiday, if the school will pay for the paint. The floor is in good condition.

Final recommendation

Therefore, I suggest that S1 be used as the student common room. A decision should be made quickly so the room can be ready for the new term.
