This week School Council have decided that they will launch their fund raising efforts and hold a Christmas cake and cookie sale. The sale will begin on Monday 7th December and will continue til the Friday that week. More information will follow and Mika will be designing a flyer to distribute around school and to parents this week.
A Christmas raffle will also be launched on 7th December. Milly has informed Mrs Pilling about which prizes School Council would like to award as the winning prizes. Mrs Pilling will be buying them this week.
Further discussion was held about our Christmas competition. School Council have decided to invite children to design a Christmas card. Freya and Luke will design a sheet to give to classes ready to go out next Monday. The cost of entry is 20p and there will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in both EYFS/KS1 and KS2.
School Council have decided that we will be supporting and collecting for the charity Nordoff Robins. This is a charity we have been raising money for for a number of years and we feel that at the time leading up to Christmas, this is a well deserved charity. School council will decide what fund raising activities to do next week.
Our newly formed School Coucil have spent the last couple of weeks talking to their classes about things to focus on this year. We have decided that we will organise some fund raising for next half term and that we will speak to Mr Wood and Mr Gubbins about our school yard. Many members discussed how children wanted parts of the playground resurfaced.
School Council is made up of 12 elected members from Year 2 through to Year 6.At the beginning of each academic year, children vote for which 2 class members they would like to represent their class on the School Council for that year.
School Council have regular meetings throughout the year when they collect ideas from their classmates and also feedback to their class after each School Council meeting.
As a group together they come up with really good ideas and there are times when they have to make decisions on behalf of the rest of the school.
Each year our School Council members do us proud within their role, they take their responsibilities seriously and develop a mature attitude towards decision making.
We look forward to meeting this years School Council members…
