Introducing the School Council
The children in the school council introduced themselves to the rest of the school as part of an assembly. They spoke about their individual roles as part of the council and discussed their aims. The school council are thoroughly enjoying talking to their peers about new ideas and are taking their roles very seriously. They will be introducing more great ideas very soon! Watch this space. :)
Our Latest Agenda
This term, the School Council are working alongside the Mini Vinnies to develop and improve our prayer garden in school. We all looked around the prayer garden and made a list of things we thought were good about the garden as well as things we need to improve. We had a meeting afterwards to collate our ideas and we have some exciting new installments and improvements in the pipeline! We can't wait to make our prayer garden a more welcoming and peaceful place to pray. Watch this space...
SPRING TERM 1
We held our first meeting of the year on the last Friday of January. We thought it would be a great idea for our school to celebrate the forthcoming 'Chinese New Year' celebrations.
The council members collected ideas of Chinese food that each class would like to have on our lunchtime menu on Wednesday 6th February. Mrs Gardner and the kitchen staff looked at our suggestions and have kindly agreed to prepare a wonderful Chinese banquet for our lunch.
We have had a really successful celebration of 'Chinese New Year'. The Kitchen team provided us with a fantastic array of Chinese food.
Sweet and Sour Chicken
And by request from Lily in Year 4 ........Dragon biscuits!
We had lots of positive comments from everyone!
Guy - "I love the noodles."
Allana - "It's amazing, I love it!"
Emily - "I wish we could have it everyday."
LENT - CAFOD'S GIVE IT UP CHALLENGE
This Lent our School Council have been involved in organising Cafod’s ‘Give It Up Challenge’.
Each member had the responsibility of choosing the colour of fish for their class and to report back to their class how their classmates can support the charity this Easter.
Each week the council members will count how much their class has donated in order to add ‘fish’ to the whole school display.
Cafod's 'Give It Up' Challenge Update 22/3/19- We are doing fantastically well at giving things up for Lent! Lot's of people have wrote what the have given up in our School Council book ranging from chocolate, i pads and even teddy bears!
Our display is becoming quickly covered in coloured 'fish' from all the classes and they're 28 'Rainbow Fish' displayed in the foyer from children who have donated £2.50 by giving something up. Well done everyone, keep it up!
CAFOD's - 'Give it Up' Challenge
On our return to school following the Easter break the school council held a meeting to discuss the success of the campaign. We were able to count how many class fish were collected and also how many individual rainbow fish.
Erin (Year 5) "I think we have been able to collect lots of money because everyone could see how many fish were on the display and which class were collecting the most."
Mia (Year 6) "Lots of people wanted to have a rainbow fish on the display so they gave something up."
Year 5 were awarded a special 'School Council' certificate for collecting an amazing 14 red class fish and 10 individual rainbow fish. Mrs Graham said "Our class school councilors held a remarkable campaign during Lent. They reminded their classmates how important it was to give money to people less fortunate than ourselves!"
