School Council

Our school council elections took place on Thursday 13th September 2018. There was excitement in both schools as children prepared their speeches. We are very proud of all the children who gave a speech and thank them for their contributions. This year we have elected one person from every year group from year 1 – 6.

This year the school council will be asked to assist their fellow pupils by helping the schools decide which charities to support, representing their fellow pupils at events such as Harvest Festival, working with the teachers to improve aspects from the school development plan and other activities.

Fundraising

The School Council take great pride in their fundraising efforts. The School Council members decided to have a collection during the Christmas Nativity performances and raised a fantastic £146.70 for Parkinson's UK. The following is a contribution from the Chair Person:

The reason why the School Council chose to give a donation to the Parkinson’s charity is because the cause of Parkinson’s is unknown. The charity badly need donations to help them find a cure for the disease to help people with the disease to live longer and have a more normal life. My Grandad also suffers from Parkinson’s disease and I know others in school have people they know with this.

Children in Need - On 17th November 2017, the School Council were involved in a bake sale and encouraging all the children and staff to dress up for the day, raising £168.70.

Wear Red Day - On Friday 19th January 2018, the School Council were involved in another bake sale and encouraging children and staff to wear red for the day, raising almost £250 to be donated to the Childrens Heart Surgery Fund at Leeds General Infirmary.
