Each year group representative attends the fortnightly School Council meetings where any school business is proposed. The results are then discussed back in class and updated in the next meeting.
In the spring term, we have help meetings and debates to think of different ways to raise money throughout lent by holding weekly activities. All activities will be £1.
We decided Week1 - 27/02 - Bake cakes for thr Fairtrade Big Brew
Week 2 - 05/03 - Dress up as a book character for world book day
Week 3 - 11/03 - Bingo with Chocolate Egg prizes
Week 4 - 18/03 - General knowledge quiz in school houses
Week 5 - 25/03 - Decorate your egg.
Throughout lent, the children can buy raffle tickets for 50p a strip. The prizes will be chocolate Easter Eggs.
All information is posted on the School Council Notice board.
Our first Lenten activity was to bake and sell cakes in aid of the Big Brew to support Fair Trade and CAFOD. Thank you to every one who baked and bought. School council and Mini Vinnies organised and ran it. It was a huge success. Thank you.
Our second activity was dressing up for World Book Day. Look at wonderful costumes.
Our third activity was Bingo. We won Easter Eggs.
Our last activity was to decorate an egg. Look at what our creative imagination has allowed us to produce.
Finally, on the last day of term, we held our Chocolate Raffle. Through out Lent, children have been buying a 20p raffle ticket, in the hope of winning a chocolate Easter egg. Here are all our winners.
School council, with Mrs Gaye and Miss Ellison, organised a BJD Got Talent competition. We had lots of entries, although the snow prevented some performers.
This term we have chosen to be buddies in the school yard. This ensures all children have some one to play with and look after them.
One of our main aims is to raise money for different charities.
We are helping to fund Fr. Ejaz in his building of an orphanage in Pakistan.
We were allocated an amount of money to spend on prizes for the school Christmas party. We planned the music we wanted, the games children wanted to play as well as party food. Together, we went up the street. We were very careful and, after using our maths skills and knowledge of money, we bought the required goods. Afterwards, we needed to wrap up the prizes. Holly was DJ and Sam was the compare. The rest of us ensured dancing and games all ran smoothly. All had fun.
We help with decisions around school. We audit playground equipment and keep resources neat and tidy. We decide upon which type of rewards to be given and how to spend the money raised for CAFOD. We help collect, sort and donate towards Food Bank.
We will soon be thinking about activities that the school can participate in during Lent to raise money for CAFOD.
