September 2018

This half term school council have taken time to settle into their role. They have worked on updating the School Council Notice Board . Last term Weschools  came and worked with School Council about setting our priorities for Autumn 2018. This half term we have had a Homeless workshop in Years 5 and 6. On 5th October the Depaul Charity is coming to work with School Council so they can work  on developing raising money and the profile of what it means to be homeless and what a homeless person really needs, this Harvest


New School Council Weekly Award

Every Friday we have a Celebration Assembly. To help the children remember to look after the school equipment and resources we have designed a weekly competition. This term we are asking the children to look after the dry wipe pens. Every week we collect certain glue sticks in and announce to the school the class who has looked after their dry wipe pens the best.

November 2018

School Council have been thinking about how to bring the problems of being Homeless to the attention of us all at school.

When the DePaul Charity came to visit us, they told us about the things that Homeless people really need. It is things such as toothpaste, deodorant, clean socks, soap bars and clean underwear.

We are asking parents and pupils to bring essential items into school so that Mr Keaney can take them to our local Homeless Charity.

We are sending out a letter this week to our families asking for help with this on Friday  16th November.

Have a look in our reception area for our “WE Won’t Rest!” box and please give generously! Thank you.

Homelessness Assembly

School Council presented the information that the DePaul Charity told them about to the rest of the school. They also updated the school and asked the children to thank their parents for donations that have been given towards making life on the street better. So far we have had lots of donations for toothpaste, soap blocks and deodorant. All of which are really useful if you are homeless. We are taking our donations to a Homeless charity in Ashton nearer to Christmas.
