The 2016 School Councillors have nearly finished their glorious year. They have filled their year so completely, from cakes sales to organising the decoration of a room, that one can’t help but be proud of them.
Very early in their year, the children accompanied Ms Skeats and Mrs Howard to the Nottingham University to give a presentation to many 15-16 year olds and their teachers about the success of our enterprise week. You may remember all that time ago when we turned our school into a supermarket to sell our handmade wears. They all took part until past their bedtime and were very well received.
Twice this year, we have visited the Council House, along with countless other schools, to take part in the primary parliament. During those visits, they took part in workshops focusing on feeling safe both in and out of school and presented their ideas to the other schools.
They have also held a bake sale in aid of Macmillan and managed to sell every single cake and raise over £120. I have to say that the cakes, which were donated by the kind parents and carers to the school, were absolutely delicious.
Never happy to sit and rest, they were not happy with the bare wall at the top of the landing and the walls with the purple room. As a result of this, the landing has now got a brightly painted mural on it and the purple room is now a lovely and fresh light blue, with new upholstery. They have also managed to get Mr Burgin to lower the mirrors in the girls’ toilets; apparently not every child was tall enough to look in it.
Finally, we are now holding a Christmas quiz to raise money for an entertainer for the children. You can purchase the quiz sheets from Monday 1st of December and be in with a chance to win a fabulously full Christmas stocking. They cost £1 and have questions that range from very easy to a little taxing. Adults are welcome to take part or just help their children.
A reminder that the new school council will be elected in the new year.
