We held our 2016-2017 elections early in the Autumn term where children from the infant and junior classes were able to vote for their representatives on the School Council Committee.
The School Council Committee is involved in a lot of important activities throughout the school year, including fund raising events and attending some of the meetings of the school governors. Last year we were involved in purchasing new playground equipment.
We held our first meeting of the year. We elected a new Chairperson, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Sports and Wellbeing Leader. Already we have lots of great ideas to work on over 2016-2017, including organising a sale of old books and thinking about how to raise money for Children in Need. If you have any ideas for how to make our school even better, remember to tell your School Council representative.
The new School Council Committee was elected. We designed our badge.
We created a new display board. It shows the minutes of our meetings, photos of events and posters.
We drew bonfire night safety posters to display around school. We organised events to raise money for Children in Need. We collected pennies for Pudsey in the hall, dressed up as superheroes and had a competition to decorate Pudsey pictures.
We carried out a survey about school dinners. We asked children from each class what they thought about the new school dinners and how we can improve lunchtime in the hall. We wrote a report for the Governors and presented it at a governors meeting.
We selected £100 worth of toys for the playground, including skipping ropes, bats and balls, airflow balls and sponge balls for each class. We hope that everybody will enjoy playing with the new toys.
