School Council

The school council is elected by pupils every September. It is made up of 1 pupil per class from years 1 – 6.

Regular meetings are held and decisions made such as how to improve the school grounds, ideas for charities we should support, and  future events to be held

A very big THANK YOU to the children at St. George’s who raised a fantastic amount of money! The MOST EVER!!  The School Council sold Pudsey biscuits and headbands as well as bringing in a donation.

We have carried on our partnership with  Kiamaogo School and our support of Christine. We have sent some letters and gifts to help with her school work and everyday activities. We find it important that we help others so they can learn and have an education like ourselves.

T    Times

P    Purpose

In the afternoon the children had discussions about bullying and what they must do if it happened to them or a friend.

They talked about telling someone that you trust.

The School Council decided that each class should make posters to highlight this issue and they wanted some to be displayed around the school.

Well done to all those children who made posters.

  • Children in Need 2015

Thank you to all the parents that contributed to the Children in Need Day. It was a real success and the school raised £428.27.  The School Council’s idea of allowing the children to dress up as a teacher was very popular and the rest of the children showed their support by coming to school in their pyjamas. There was also lots of children wearing Pudsey outfits. Here are some of our favourite photos from the day:

Our partner school is Kiamaogo School.

We have decided to sponsor Christine McKenna for the next seven years.  This is an important decision because it means she will be able to keep going to school.  They have to pay to go to school in Kenya!

Mrs Porter and Mrs Baker took our welcome letter to Christine in February 2015.
