Friday 21st June - A VIP guest
At the start of the year the school council were keen to know more about politics. We therefore invited Sir Graham Brady into our school to tell us about his job and give us some information about his party. Today he very kindly came in to talk to the children. We started with an assembly and then the school council had the opportunity to interview him in more detail.
Thursday 14th March
After the success of our last book swap we decided to run another on World Book Day. Again, we had lots of books handed in and the children were able to take home a book they hadn’t read before. The children were all very enthusiastic and enjoyed making their choices.
Saturday 1st December - Lantern Parade
For the last few weeks the school council have been working hard to promote the lantern parade. They have made posters and flyers and then stayed late after school to talk about the parade with parents and try and encourage people to attend. Fortunately, their hard work paid off and we had an excellent turn out!
Thank you so much to everybody that attended and we you had a great time attending the workshops, marching in the parade and singing Christmas songs with the choir!
Here are some photos from the event.
Thursday 15th November - Book Swap
One of our Year 5 school council representatives had a really good idea to do a book swap. The idea behind it was that everybody would get the opportunity to swap a book they had read for a new one. Lots of children took part and it was very well organised by our school council team. Thank you to everyone who brought in a book and thank you to all of my helpers.
Miss Wray and Miss Richardson - School Council Team Leaders
We have loved working with the children to come up with new ideas to make our school better. They have all been incredibly enthusiastic and well organised. If you would like to be a school council representative next year then please be thinking about what makes you a good candidate ready for the presentations at the start of the next academic year. If you have any ideas then please speak to your class representative. Thanks for visiting our page.
