First school council meeting 2023. What a success! Suggestions discussed & some great ideas for the upcoming year.
SAY HELLO TO OUR NEW SCHOOL COUNCILLORS 2023-2024!
JULY 2023. A huge THANK YOU to this year's School Councillors! Thank you for your hard work. In September 2023, there will be a new team.
JUNE 2023. We were lucky enough to have our Caritas friend, Zach, join us in school today to help us with improving our school environment and taking care of God's creation. The School Councillors each planted a herb plant in our growing garden and planted the seeds of wildflowers that were sent to us as part of the King's Coronation. What a brilliant afternoon of Stewardship and Faith in Action.
APRIL 2023. Our fantastic team of school councillors for this half of the year. Discussing suggestions & helping to make positive changes across the school.
FEBRUARY 2023. Thank you to our wonderful school counsellors who completed their role in the first half of the school year. Now time to swap over to the second school counsellor for each year group.
We have an active and enthusiastic school council made up of representatives from each class in the school, from Year 1 to Year 6. Each class votes for their own representative at the beginning of the school year. These are the representatives for this school year:
2022 - 23
|Class||September - February||February - July|
The council will meet at least once in each half term. Our meetings always start with a prayer and we read and discuss the suggestions that people have put into our suggestion wallets.
Well done to the children who were voted for the,'Serving God and one another award'.

COURT VISIT - Zuzanna and Evie wrote:
'On the 26th February we ( the KS2 School Council) went on a trip to the Courts of Justice at Bournemouth Crown Courts.We met Judge Climie and asked him various questions about his experiences .Some of the most interesting things we found out were that it can be difficult to sentence someone as it can ruin their lives and we found out who sits where in the court.We also learnt that the Judge has guidelines to help him decide on a sentence.We really enjoyed this fantastic experience.'

FRIENDSHIP BENCH- March 2019
The school council decided that they would like a friendship bench for children to sit on when they are lonely or sad so that other children can see them and help them.Thanks to our mufti day and the donations we received, we have accomplished our goal and the benches are here and are now in the KS 1 and KS 2 playgrounds!!
Bournemouth County Courts Visit- 29.1.19
Oli, Lara and Alex wrote about our visit.
Today we went to the Crown and County Courts in Bournemouth and there we met Judge Forster.He showed us his wigs and the courtroom and where everybody sat.We had a fun quiz and we asked him lots of questions like, 'What is the longest sentence you have given?' It was 24 years!! We also found out why Judges wear wigs and that they are made from horse hair.We discovered that there are 12 jurors and that 10 have to agree before a decision can be made.We met a prison officer and saw where the prisoners wait before they go into see the Judge. It was really good fun and interesting and now we can't wait to tell or classes about our trip.
Congratulations to all the children who won the School Council 'welcoming all award' this half term.

Well done to all the winners of the School Council Award for Serving God and One Another:
Thank you so much to everyone who made up a box for our shoe box appeal.
So far this year, we have organised a cake sale in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. We also organise a School Council Award each half term, which is linked to our Mission Statement. We have organised lots of fundraising events in the past and continue to do so.
We chose some new furniture for the KS2 library area and have enjoyed coming up with ideas about how that space can be best used so that as many children as possible get to enjoy it.
We helped to bag up all the donations from our harvest festival. Thank you for your kind generosity.
