Our School Council meets most weeks on a Friday. Two children are chosen twice a year from Y1-Y6 to be councillors and a different teacher runs the School Council each year. Our School Councillors are:
Year 1: Tilly and Teddy
Year 2: Sienna and Jack
Year 3: Ruby and Max
Year 4: Isabelle and Harry (Secretary)
Year 6: Haroon (Chair) and Ollie (Vice Chair)
This year, Mrs Parkin is helping to run the School Council.
The School Council themselves are responsible for the content of this page.
Please see below for the minutes of our meetings.
What have we been up to so far this year?
- We supported Jeans4Genes day on Friday 20th September and raised over £215 for the charity, thank you to everyone for their support.Children also designed their own jeans as part of a colouring competition and the School Councillors had the very difficult task of choosing the winning design which belonged to Edward in Year 1.
-We supported Children in Need day on Friday 15th November by coming to school in in odd/bonkers clothes. Thank you to all the childrenparents/guardians and staff for your support, as you can see from the photos on the newsletter, everyone looked amazing! Thank you also for your kind donations of cakes and biscuits for our cake sale, so far we have raised over £260 and we will be holding another cake sale on Monday 18th November after school to sell the remaining cakes and biscuits. The School Councillors will update you on the final total this week.
Total update: We raised over £280 for Children in Need-thank you.
-We have been asked by the PTA to discuss and collect suggestions from children about a new project the PTA could support with funding. We are very fortunate to have a wonderful PTA which helps to fund school events as well as projects such as the outdoor reading area. Each class has been asked by their School Councillor to suggest ideas for a new project this year and we have had many suggestions. The most popular suggestions include: new football nets, basketball/netball hoops, a sheltered area on the playground, storage for children's waterproofs and additional equipment for lunchtimes. Each class is going to vote for their favourite over the coming weeks.
- We are preparing to support the charity Save the Children by participating in 'Christmas Jumper Day' on Friday 13th December. Children can come to school in their Christmas jumpers and non-uniform for a donation of £1. There is no need to buy a Christmas jumper to particpate, children can come to school in their favourite jumpers and decorate them.
