SCHOOL COUNCIL 2017 2018
We celebrated Sport Relief this year with a Dizzy Dancing/Whacky Walking competition. Lots of us joined in at lunch time and had fun dancing and walking in many different ways, as crazily as we could. The School Council had a difficult time finding the winners because, as you can see in the photos below, it was quite the mad affair! All good fun but very exhausting too! We raised a fantastic £106 for Sport Relief so a huge thank you to the parents and carers too for all their donations.
Children in Need Dotty Art Competition
Take a look at the fantastic entries to the dotty art competition in the slide show below. It was very hard to judge and the standard of the winners work was very high. Well done to all who took part!
Children in Need 2017
We had a great response to our fundraising events for Children in Need. There were 40 entries to our 'dotty, spotty art' competition - winners to be announced soon!
Over 93 people bought items from the tuck shop - a record morning! Profits from which will also go to Children in Need. A massive thank you for all your support!
The School Council were very proud to represent the pupils and lay the wreath and plant crosses at the school's remembrance service this week.
The older members of our council represented the whole council at the Open Morning and really enjoyed talking to the new prospective parents and pupils. They did a great job of providing an insight into the important role of the council and giving information about the many activities they take part in.
One of the first tasks the School Council had this year was to survey the classes about what kind of animal they thought would be best for our school attendance pet. Mrs Liley then consulted with the local pet shop and we are now the proud owners of Nibbles and Rosie, the two new Guinea pigs.
Congratulations to our new school council!
We were delighted to welcome Lion Pat Phillips to school to raise awareness of World Sight Day. This is an annual day of awareness held on the second Thursday of October, to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment.
School Council 2016 2017
The School Council have been supporting the Lions by donating tins of food. The Lions have an ongoing programme to Feed the Hungry.
On 7th June these cans, together with thousands more collected by the Lions in the East Midlands area, will be placed on the Humber Bridge as a publicity project to commemorate the Lions Centenary, 100 years of Service. The cans will then be distributed to Food banks and Soup kitchens.
On a beautiful sunny day the school council built their own "Humber bridge" of cans in support of the Lions initiative!
Meet the School Council
for 2016 2017
We continue to run our Friday Tasty Tuck Shop and have widened our stock to include: cheesy bites, chocolate raisins and Scrummies (special dried fruit treats) too! Popcorn still remains a popular choice, although pear and apple crisps are always in demand. Remember to bring either 50p or 60p for your break time treat every Friday.
The money we have raised through sales of tuck shop has sponsored a whole year of education for a child in India too! How fantastic!
Meeting Our MP
Following the Google internet safety event, we invited our local MP, Victoria Atkins, to answer some tough questions we had prepared about the campaign for all children to be in education, Send My Friend to School, that we support annually. We also asked her a lot of questions about what it is like to be a Member of Parliament. We really enjoyed listening to her answers and finding out about Westminster life. As a result, Victoria has invited us to 'her place of work' so we hope to go to London sometime later this year.
Children in Need Assembly
We held an assembly to introduce the 2016 Children in Need campaign. We showed a film of an example of how last year's money had been spent and told the school how they could support the charity.
Our First Event - Red, White and Blue Day
This year our first fundraising event was to support the different Armed Forces Charities by holding a Red, White and Blue day. We made bunting with the triangles of cloth kindly donated by many of our parents and children and decorated the school. Everyone dressed up in red, white or blue clothes and donated money for the non uniform privilege. A massive thank you to all who helped.
