Say hello to our Councillors...
Each class from Year 2 upwards has School Council representatives. These are children who have presented themselves to the class as candidates and explained (along with others) why they would make an outstanding class representative and why their classmates should vote for THEM in the democratic vote!
The School Council make a BIG difference in school. They organise fund raising events, raise money for school fund and also their own projects.
The Council meet every two weeks, the children bring the thoughts and ideas from their own classes to share and we plan for the half term ahead.
We keep a log of all of our meetings and actions which can be found in the entrance hall for everyone to look through. Keep your eye on this page and on our log book for further School Council activities.
Mrs Kendal, our Chair of Governors, joins our meetings once a half term to catch up with us and help us with our projects!
Wow! What a turn out for the Valentines Bake Off!
All cakes that were entered were well-made and fantastically decorated. Well done to everyone who took part. Here are a sample of some of the great entries!
We wish we could have given everyone a prize, and while it was a tricky decision we did finally decide on our winners.
Winner of 'Most Creative'
Thank you to everyone who took part and to Mrs Kendal (Chair of Governors) for coming to help us judge!
Our next meeting will be in March and hopefully we can come up with some more exciting opportunities to help raise money for our school. If you have a great idea, please pass it along to your class councillor.
During our Spring term planning meeting with Mrs Kendal, we finalised the details of our Spring term fundraiser (see below). Mrs Kendal will also be joining us on the day to help judge your LOVEly cakes - hint: she likes well-decorated cakes, strawberry and chocolate!
This year the School Council are fundraising to improve our school environment.
BAKE A CAKE FOR VALENTINE'S DAY!
Wednesday 12th February
Bring your 'Valentine's Day' theme cake for a chance to win the hearts of the judges.
£2 to enter, cakes to be brought in on the day.
We will be holding sponsored events, sales, competitions and dress-down-days throughout the year.
What have the School Council been up to?
Last year, the School Council organised sponsored events, raffles, competitions, dress down days, ran a stall at the October Fest and had cake sales to raise money. They worked exceptionally hard and raised over £2,200. What a phenomenal team they were!
We want to build on the success of this and continue the hard work this year.
