School Councillors Lead Worship
This week the school said a huge thank you to members of the School Council during a special assembly this week as they end their term in service.
The School Council reflected on their year and all they have achieved which included fundraising for the British Heart Foundation by taking part in the Skip to be Fit challenge; collecting the views of their peers on the schools homework structure which highlighted that the majority of children are happy with the type and level of homework they receive as well as the huge benefit of the school homework clubs; attending governors meetings to feedback on their work; producing a school t-towel to raise funds for a worry and wishes box to be put into every classroom and, perhaps most importantly, being the ‘children’s voice’ in school.
Worries and wishes boxes are being distributed amongst the classes this week and next. Thank you to all parents who purchased t-towels; the governors of Bapchild and Tonge who topped up the funds to make sure every class had a box and Mrs Beech-Martin who helped put the t-towel design together. There are still limited numbers of t-towels available, should you wish to purchase one please pop into the school office.
Elections for new School Council members will be held during the week before half term; children will be expected to outline what they can bring to the school council before a blind vote is taken.
