School Council News – Jan 2015

The School Council had a busy half term just before Christmas, fundraising and organising the Toy Box Appeal, the Salvation Army Toy Appeal, the Children in Need Bingo session and also helping with the Christmas Fayre. A few of the School Council were also involved with the Christmas L.A.P Shindig, where they acted as hosts for the afternoon. This half term, they continue to promote the caring side of our community raising money for the British Heart Foundation.

On Friday 6th February the whole school is joining in with the “Wear it. Beat it” campaign. Pupils are invited to swap one item of their school uniform for a red item, in return for a £1 donation. Pupils must wear regulation school trousers, shoes and their blazer but we are hoping for a sea of red shirts/ties/hair decorations all to raise money and also awareness for the fantastic job the British Heart Foundation do. We hope you will also support this and join in with us too. Donations can be handed in to the school reception.

The School Council page on the website now has a suggestion box for pupils to offer ideas of future events and ideas for how we can improve our school environment. Over the winter, we have all been appreciative of the shelters in the yards, which were kindly provided for us by the legacy of Mrs Thorley Platt.
