Autumn 1 News update by School Council

Since coming back to school in September we have been very busy in our School Council meetings and we’d like to share with you what we have been doing.

Firstly, we all got allocated our roles and responsibilities for the Autumn Term. These are as follows…

Chair: Rosie

Vice Chair: Jack

Secretary: Zara

Noticeboard: Kara and Jack

Communications: Lewis

We’ve also been working on our Action Plan for the coming year which has involved liaising with our classes and teachers in school. This year our Action Plan has four main objectives…

  1. Support Charities. The charities we have chosen to support this year are… Children in Need, Leeds Homelessness Charity and Cancer Research.
  2. Improve our outside area. We are planning on creating a wildlife area in our school grounds and repurposing what is currently our sand pit.
  3. Update school policies. Mrs Holmes would like us to help her consult with pupils about certain policies that need reviewing.
  4. Complete music room refurbishment. The majority of the work in our music room is now complete and we are planning on an official opening before Christmas.

Our First Event … Children in Need!

This year we will be supporting Children in Need on Friday 17th November by having a non-uniform day. Our theme for this year is spots so… the spottier the better! School Council will also be running a cake sale at morning play. If you could help by donating any buns/cakes/biscuits that would be great! Everything will be on sale for 20p. Not only that…. School Council are also going to be organising a spotty treasure hunt at lunchtime too! More details to follow!

We have got lots of exciting ideas for the coming year already and hope you will support us in any way you can.

Thank you for reading our newsletter.

Autumn 2 News update by School Council

Since coming back to school after the October half term holiday we’ve been very busy working on lots of different things.

We’ve been concentrating on supporting two of the charities we have chosen to support this year; Children in Need and Leeds Homeless Christmas Appeal. We had great fun on Children in Need day wearing our own clothes, running our own cake stall and doing a treasure hunt which resulted in us raising over £450!

Imogen in Year 4 wrote School Council a letter asking if we could do something to support the homeless in Leeds and we thought it was a brilliant idea. We did some research and chose to support the Leeds Homeless Christmas Appeal. Paul Emmet, one of the organisers from the charity, came in to visit us on Thursday 30th November and told us about how important supporting the homeless is. We are currently collecting a variety of things to give to the homeless this winter which will hopefully make Christmas a bit more bearable for them.

In addition to that we have also been busy writing a script in preparation for leading our annual Carol Service at St Mary’s Church next week.

We are also pleased to announce that our Music Room refurbishment is now complete and we are underway with organising an official opening on Wednesday 17th January. There will be more details on this to follow in the New Year.

Thank you for reading our Newsletter and we will write again in the New Year to tell you about our future projects which include improving our outside area and updating school policies.

Merry Christmas

School Council
