September 2020 - The School Council met for the first time. We learned about our role as a school councillor and discussed how we thought we could help.
Lots of us thought it was important to be representatives of our classmates and that we could be involved in helping to change things and make things happen.
We looked at how to hold meetings using an agenda, taking the minutes and listening to each others ideas.
We held a non uniform day in school and were encouraged to wear 'Autumn' colours! Donations were made to Water Aid and we raised £154.00
Our food donations went to a local charity 'Hospitality and Hope'. The Year 3 and 4 school council representatives helped pack the food ready for collection. We were overwhelmed by the amount collected and the charity were extremely grateful.
Children In Need 13/11/2020
The School Council helped promote the event in school by making posters, bunting and decorating the notice boards.
Help The Aged
The School council representatives plus our school's Head Boy/Girl helped make Christmas cards. These will be distributed to some of our older members of our community through the Help The Aged charity. It is an a nice gesture from the younger generation to the older generation.
"I think it will make them feel happy to get a card." - Laylah
"They might be lonely so to get a card might cheer them up." - Poppy
"If they have no family they might not get cards." - Oscar
Thank you to all the families that were able to produce a backpack for the Mary's Meals charity especially at a time when we have been thinking about issues so much closer to home. 22 backpacks were donated and I've been able to make a backpack full of 'Spare Resources'.
so well done!
I have been in contact with the charity and obviously, the collection has been put on hold for now so hopefully the children will be back at school to see the backpacks being collected and sent on to the children in Malawi.
Stay safe everyone!
29/06/21 - School Council Meeting - It has been a while since have been able to hold a meeting together due to Covid restrictions. We were asked to speak to our classmates and record what they would like to see happening in school etc
In the meeting we all shared our notes and discussed how some things were feasible and how some of the requests could still not happen in our school due to restrictions still being in place. Mr Woodhouse will give us feedback in our next meeting.
25/06/21 - School Council Meeting - Chloe (year 5) took the minutes. Following our last meeting Mr Woodhouse has informed us that he has been able to implement 2 of our requests.
The Prayer Garden will be developed and improved by The Mini Vinnies.
During the Summer holidays a new trim trail/ exercise trail will be installed in the Key Stage 2 area.
Both of these ideas were brought to us by our Year 6 councillors Jay and Poppy.
We were asked to bring suggestions on how to use/spend a £400 donation which the school has received. Some of the ideas that we have passed onto Mr Woodhouse includes; ice-cream for everyone, cake day, new football goals, a nature area, bouncy castle/inflatables and a raffle/summer fair.
