Competition Success for the School Council !

A big well done to the School Council for winning 2nd prize in a competition entered before lockdown. The £500 cash prize was awarded by the Rotary Club.

The Council successfully put forward a case for improving and extending the play area, to include a bark chip surface where tyres, logs and other natural resources can be used. In the future, they would like to add a summer house, raised beds and reflection area. This money will help kick start this project.

School Council plans for Children in Need

This year, the School Council have chosen three ways to help raise money for Children in Need.

1) From 15th October, round pound coins will be going out of circulation. Please ask your children if they could bring old pound coins into school. We will be collecting the old pound coins and donating these to the charity. Please bring the coins in as soon as you can and School Council reps from each class will collect them.

2) When your child comes to school, they can wear full non-uniform and bring in £1. (Friday 17th November)

3) We will also be selling Pudsey and blush glitter jewel pin badges for £1.00. School Council will let you know when these are in stock and available to buy at morning playtime.Holly and Eryn, School Council
