Cow Friday 

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. 


Tuck Shop Survey

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.

Energy Saving Project

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:

  • wear a jumper and turn the heating down one degree
  • only boil enough water for the number of cups you need when using a kettle
  • take your phone off charge when the battery is full
  • close the curtains to help keep the heat in
  • make sure all appliances are off standby when you go out
  • turn lights off - remember 'last out, lights off!'
  • Here are some photos of what we have been up to. 

Children in Need 2014

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.

Lions International World Sight Day 

To support the Lions awareness week on the 9th October 2014 for World Sight Day we blindfolded some of our members and they had to eat their lunch with the Headteacher, who was also blindfolded. The Hedteacher stated, 'I felt vunrable.' The members thought it felt weird and can now appreciate how hard it is to do normal daily activities without sight.
