School Council Updates 2020-2021

Autumn Term Updates

Week Commencing - 28.09.20

This week the School Council met for their first meeting of the year - the school council met in their bubble groups.  Each meeting began with the children introducing themselves to one another and sharing one thing they were looking forward to.  The children then began discussing what the school council is and what school council representatives do.  They then discussed why a school council is important in a school.  

 

They then moved on to establishing a set of ground rules that they would each follow during each of the meetings - these will be displayed in the School Council room. To complete their first meeting they began discussing some of their goals for the year as the new School Council for 2020-2021 - they will continue this discussion next week. 

 

Week Commencing - 05.10.20

This week the School Council met for their second meeting of the term.  They began their meeting by discussing the various different things the School Council has achieved over previous years at Park Walk. They then moved on to discussing goals that might be appropriate for the School Council this year.  They had many ideas such as; raising money for our school and different charities, being positive role models for the rest of the children, planning and organising fun events as well as many more ideas. They then each shared one goal they would like to have for the School Council this year and recorded in on their own rugby ball. These will be displayed in the School Council room and once the goal has been achieved the rugby ball will be placed in the goal post on the display. 

 

Week Commencing - 12.10.20

This week the School Council met for their third meeting of the term.  They met to discuss a potential fundraiser before the half term holidays.  They shared many potential ideas but most decided that given Halloween was fast approaching it would be nice to do something around the theme of Halloween.  Various ideas were suggested such as; cake sales, dress ups, sponsored events in all of the meetings.  However, given that there is not much time left until the end of term most agreed it needed to be something easy and simple.  They also decided that their first fundraiser would be to raise money for our school. 

 

Therefore, they decided that on the last day of the half term (Friday, 23rd October) they will host a dress up day and an in school cake sale.  Every child will be able to leave their uniform at home on Friday 23rd October and come dressed to school in a Halloween costume and during the school day, with their classes will be able to choose a Halloween themed cake to enjoy from our in school cake sale.  All for a small donation of £3

 

We are therefore kindly asking, if on Friday 23rd October, you could send your child to school dressed in a Halloween costume, with £3 and a Halloween themed cake, ideally individual cupcakes and definitely no nuts.  Staff will also be bringing in some cakes for the cake sale.  The School Council really appreciate your support with this and are looking forward to seeing all your creative costumes and cake designs - a little fun before the half term holiday! 

 

Week Commencing - 19.10.20

This week the School Council met for their fourth meeting of the term.  They met to discuss what needed to be done for their upcoming Halloween dress up and in school cake sale this Friday (23.10.20).    They decided that they needed to make sure that the bottom hall was free for the morning and that there were enough tables to lay out all the cakes out.  They also agreed that they needed to make sure we had, a table cloth, napkins, plates and cutlery to host the cake sale. 

 

They also discussed how they thought it would be beneficial to create posters to put up around the school to advertise the event and remind the staff and children of the date and details of the event.  As well as, how they thought it might be useful to get the office staff to send out a text in the week to remind all parents of the upcoming event. 

 

The final thing they thought would be a good idea would be to provide each class teacher with a labelled envelope so that they could collect all the money donated on the day to then give to the office staff to total up.

 

The School Council are really looking forward to their first fundraiser of the year and really hope that you will support them in making it a success.  Just a reminder of all you need to know: 

 

On Friday 23rd October, your child can come to school dressed in a Halloween costume, with £3 and some Halloween themed cakes, ideally individual cupcakes and definitely no nuts.  Staff will also be bringing in some cakes for the cake sale.  They will be visiting the cake sale during the school day with their class and will be able to choose a cake to enjoy during their morning break. 

 

We cannot wait to see all your creative costumes and cake designs - a little fun before the half term holiday!
