The first three ideas the School Council worked on were: ordering play equipment, sponsored walk and UNICEF posters.
Ideas achieved in terms 1 and 2:
- The School Council audited existing play equipment, asked children what they would like to have in the playground and ordered £400 of equipment. The children are now really enjoying playing with the new equipment. Maya is organising zones to improve the organisation of the play equipment. The School Council are proud they raised the money last year and were able to provide equipment for the school.
- The School Council went on a sponsored walk around the local area and raised £132 for Children In Need. (Click here to see photos from our walk)
- The School Council have organised the gymnastics group to perform in an assembly in January.
- The School Council UNICEF posters are looking good and supporting the school in promoting the UNICEF values.
