School Council Selevino Writing Competition
School Council have been very busy in this week judging their recent Selevino writing competition. School Council challenged children to write to Selevino about themselves and their class. Children were encouraged to think about what made their class special, interesting facts about themselves, and to illustrate their entries. School Council were delighted with the great number of entries and had the difficult task of picking a winner from each class. The winning entries were posted to Selevino in Mozambique to tell him more about our school, and the competition winners were awarded special prizes by School Council in our Friday Awards Assembly!
African Themed Afternoon
At the end of the Spring term School Council organised an African themed afternoon to help children learn more about the continent of Africa and the country where Selevino lives, Mozambique. We sponsor Selevino through World Vision to give him access to education and the children enjoy receiving regular updates via post and video about his life there. During the School Council event Key Stage 2 were visited by the Telford African and Afro-Caribbean Resource Centre, who ran workshops for the children on African culture, whilst Key Stage 1 and EYFS enjoyed art, music, dance and geography activities. Mrs Perri also prepared some delicious exotic fruits for us to try at lunchtime. The afternoon was really successful and the School Council did a fantastic job of organising everything!
Our pupils wanted to find out more about what local government does. They asked some great questions, such as ‘What does Shropshire Council do?’ and ‘What are the biggest problems for the council at the moment?’
They found out LOTS of information which we’ll share in assembly on Monday. Well done everyone.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all of our School Councillors who have completed this role over the last year-two years. It has been a challenging 18 months but you have all taken pride in your role and we are all very proud of how you have represented the school throughout your time on the School Council.
⭐️ Keeping our School tidy ⭐️
A huge thank you to our wonderful School Council and Eco Council members who completed a litter pick around school yesterday afternoon. They were very excited to attend the first meeting of the year where in their teams made sure our school was litter free. Even in the rain all of them had a huge smile on their faces. 💙💛
Our job is to listen to our peers and inform them of new initiatives throughout the school year. We have a very important job to do in influencing decisions and putting forward pupils ideas for discussion.
This year we decided to go with the national theme for Children in Need and came to school wearing spots. We sold Children in Need merchandise and Pudsey helped Mrs Benge to give out certificates in assembly.
Your School Council have a noticeboard in the hall, which allows us to keep all pupils updated with our work. We will regularly update this site with a summary of our latest initiatives, so 'watch this space'.
Remember if you have an idea or suggestion, write it on a piece of paper and put it in your class suggestion box or talk to your class rep.
You School Council
