Welcome to our School Council
The School Council is made up of children in all year groups from Yr 1 to Yr 5. They meet with Mrs Ponton and talk about what is good in School and how we can make it better. They also give ideas about fundraising and even have their own budget to buy new toys for the play areas.
The School Council meet and talk about what their roles and responsibilities are. It was decided that a good School Council Member;
Last Year our School Council decided they wanted to make playtimes better. After sharing a few different ideas they suggested that Year One and Year Two could have different playtimes on a morning. This way there would be more space and everyone would get to play with the toys. Some children on the School Council said that they may miss their friends in other year groups, so they suggested that on an afternoon all children should play together.
I asked our new School Council how our new playtime routines were going, they all said that they liked it and were in agreement that it was better.
Westroyd's Election Day May
Big news at Westroyd this week, the School Council agreed that an election was needed to help decide on the very important question ... What colour should the new P.E Kit be?
The School council interviewed other class members, parents and staff on their views and still could not agree on a colour. It was decided that all school children would be given the chance to vote. All children were given a ballot paper and asked to vote on their favourite colour option for the 'New P.E. Polo shirt'.
The election took place in the ICT suite with Mr Coates over seeing the proceedings. It was rumoured that the colour Yellow was the favourite to win. However after the final ballot paper was in and counting done, it was a runaway with the colour red!
Red Nose Day - March
Since its launch in 1988, red nose day has become something of a British institution, its the day, every two years when people across the land can get together and do something funny for money. Comic Relief spends the money raised by Red Nose Day to help people living tough lives across the UK and Africa.
This year the theme for Red Nose Day is 'Make your face funny for money'. The School council have met and decided they would like people to donate £1.00 to Comic Relief to come in fancy dress (with a funny face if you would like to)! During the day the Infant School Children will take part in a fashion show assembly, where there will be prizes for people who can pull the funniest faces! All children including Nursery will be creating buns and biscuits with a Red Nose theme for adults to come and buy at the end of the School and Nursery day.
The School Council hope to raise lots of money for this worthy cause.
