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!

Open Morning

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.

Pet Survey

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.

The School Council have had a busy first week.  They have elected their Leader, Deputy and Secretary and have carried out a survey about a suitable school pet.  They are now in the process of preparing the tuck shop and organising the next Children In Need event.

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.

Pat joined the School Council to eat lunch wearing a blindfold to experience the difficulties people with impaired vision face.

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!

Tuck Shop

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.
