St Mary’s Catholic Primary School Blackbrook
Update from the School Councillors
We have been in post and on duty from October 2019 and we are enjoying being School Councillors.
We hold regular meetings and gather information and discuss proposals and ideas.
This is what we have been up to so far this school year (2019-2020)
We have helped and organised charities events in school – E.G. we sold poppies for the Brirish Legion, helped to orgainse the Food Bank donations from our Harvest. And organised the Jumper Day during December 2019 for the Save the Children Charity, we were thrilled that school donated £385.00 to the Appeal.
Our most recent work, has involved the School Councillors putting forward a proposal to Mrs Ashton for Bike and Scooter racks. Mrs Ashton has agreed to the Scooter racks idea, and we are busy finding costs and looking for safe places to locate the racks within our school site.
We have also organised a whole school vote, for a new playground zone for both Infant and Junior lunchtime breaks. The new zone for the Infants is a hopscotch area and a dressing up zone. The Junior zone will be Rubix cubes and fidget spinners. Hopefully these changes will encourage children to have a happy lunchtime with their friends. We have also discussed the idea of the Infant children being part of the lunchtime sports club, and hopefully this will start during the Summer term.
Keep coming back to our School Council page – we will keep you up to date about all of our ideas..
