Primary School Councils Event at North Tyneside Council Quadrant Offices
Wednesday 16th October
Our new councillors had a very interesting and productive morning with Mrs Keane, Miss Wright and councillors from other local schools. The children worked brilliantly as a team, came up with sone excellent and ideas and presented them well. We will continue to work on our ideas back at school.
The School Council have decided to raise money for charity during Lent.
We have decided to have a 1p and 2p challenge.
Each class has a plant pot to fill with as many copper coins as they can.
Each class will also suggest charities we might donate to.
We hope you enjoy this challenge.
Healthy Food in School
This term the School Council will be getting involved with promoting healthy eating and snacks in school. They will be working as a group and passing on positive messages to other children in their year groups and phases.
Thanks to everyone who visited our stall at the Christmas Fayre. Lots of you had a go at guessing the name of the cuddly snow leopard. The lucky winner was Megan from Year 5 and the winning name was Robin.
The School Council will soon be having a meeting to count the profits and decide what to do with the money raised.
We have now carefully counted the money and the good news is we raised £21.50. After a discussion and a vote the councillors decided to spend the money on CAFOD World Gifts as follows.
Teach A Child to Read £10
Emergency Water £5
A Queen Bee For A Hive £4
An extra £2 was donated to CAFOD and the spare 50p went in a Charity collecting tin.
Well done everyone.
