School Council 2013/2014
The Vauxhall Primary School council is made up of representatives from Nursery to Year 6. They meet fortnightly to discuss issues, plan events and think about how they can have an impact on their school and local environment. Our School Council adviser is Mr David Dennis.
This year so far …
- Children from Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 have been making a positive contribution to the dinner hall at lunch time. These children have donned aprons and gloves to help keep the dinner hall tidy and safe. They are responsible for ensuring that children throw their leftovers away and stack their plates carefully. The impact they have made has been immediate.
- We raised £166.34 for BBC Children in Need on our ‘Dress in SPOTS, IF you dare’ fundraising day in November. All the children and staff has a fantastic time and our school was completely spotty.
- At Christmas time we raised £103.51 for the Great Ormond Street Children Hospital Charity. Marian and Tunde, our chairperson and vice chairperson collected donations for this worthy cause during our Christmas production and at the Winter Fayre.
So what’s next:
- Lots more charity and fundraising events to follow.
- The school council would like to improve the appearance and condition of the school toilets.
- The school council would like to establish play ground leaders during lunchtime with the help of Mr Costello, our PE Co-ordinator.
And much much more .... We’ll keep you updated!
