Working Together for the Good of Each Other

School Councillors

Democracy in action

 

Our school councillors have been working super hard over the last few weeks. They are doing their best to make ideas happen, as suggested by children from across the school. So far this half term they have purchased goalie gloves for the playground and arranged a fundraising pyjama day on the 9th February. There are also lots of other exciting plans in the pipe-line so watch this space. Keep up the good work team!

Festive cheer

 

The Christmas dress up day competition, hosted by the School Council, came to it's conclusion today. The council members secretly judged the best dressed and the winners were announced in assembly. Our lucky winners are pictured below.

Christmas dress up day

 

Our defibrillator fundraising began today with a Christmas themed dress up day. Each child donated £1 to come in their own Christmas clothes. The money has been counted and we are pleased to announce that we raised a wonderful £126!. Many thanks to the children and parents for their efforts. Take a look at the pictures below to see the children entering into the Christmas spirit.

Lunchtime fun

 

A suggestion came in from a child in Year 3 requesting books and teddies in the playground at lunchtime. The School Council listened to this suggestion and made it happen. As you can see from the pictures below, the teddies and books are going down a treat! Keep those ideas coming in and we will do what we can.

Our defibrillator fundraising launch

 

We were very fortunate to have a visit from two Event Management and Training representatives in assembly this week.  They kindly agreed to come into school and talk to the children about the importance of defibrillator machines and why we should strive to have one in school. The children were treated to a demonstration of how the machine works and they all found it very interesting. Our first fundraising event will be a Christmas dress up day and hopefully it won't be be too long before all our fundraising efforts pay off and we have one of these vital machines in school.

Meet Our School Councillors

I'm pleased to announce that our School Councillors for this coming academic year have been elected!

I have no doubt that they will be just as committed and effective as last years school council. As they progress in their new roles they will hopefully realise that as well as helping to run our school, they are also growing and developing their own skills and confidence at the same time! 

 

So far this school year we have already organised a fundraising Christmas Dress Up day which I am sure will be great fun. The focus of our fundraising will be playground improvement and a defibrillator. Representatives from Event Management and Training will be coming into school soon to launch our efforts.  We are also working on lots of other exciting, secret plans which we will reveal another time. Watch this space!
