To raise funds for Christian Aid Week on Friday 15th May the school dressed up as cows or in black and white because we are trying to raise £150 to buy a cow for a village in Ethiopia. The School Council and the Christian Committee organised the event which was introduced by a School Council Assembly. Cow Friday raised a fantastic £118!! Thank you to the parents for their support.
We are also organising Cow Wednesday to raise the remainder of the money through games and by selling Cow Pat Cookies.
School Council Speaker's Award - Highly Commended
We are very pleased to announce that we achieved a Highly Commended for our energy saving project which we entered in to the Speaker's School Council Award.
This is what they said about it:
Less than 20% of participants received this special award, so congratulations to your school council!
We received our certificate in the Friday Mentions Assembly and the special award badge can be seen on the website home page.
The School Council would like to be able to raise enough money to sponsor a Hearing Dog each month and also to bring back the Fun Friday tuck shop to fund this (which was stopped after the products were no longer available). Last term we asked parents for their views about the prices of a new supply source and we had a big response. Thank you for your interest. The graph below shows the answers to the yes/no questions. Parents kindly added further comments which the council is now considering along with the results and will decide what to do next soon.
We have been running a project to raise awareness of the importance of saving electricity. We believe that we can all do our own little bit to help to save the planet from green house gases and global warming, as well as saving money by cutting bills. We have organised an assembly, put up posters, created a whole school pledge and taken lessons to help pupils and staff learn about saving electricity.
Our top tips to save energy include:
On the 14th of November 2014 our school dressed up as heros for Children in Need. Our school raised £200 pounds. A big thank you to the people who donated.
Our school was on the radio with Pudsey Bear! We were all excited. It was an amazing day.
Below are the winners of the crazy catch competition, the colouring competition and some more photos from the day.
