16/11/2018 Pyjama day for Children In Need
I would like to express how much the school council were impressed by everyone's effort in coming to school in their pyjamas. The school council delivered a fantastic mini presentation that they had prepared including all facts and figures from the past BBC Children In Need events. The organisation, enthusiasm and effort from the whole of the council made this even a great success. The School council chose to wear pyjamas to raise money this time and from spreading the word and having a positive approach, we raised a great big £202 to help those in need.
I would personally like to thank each member of the school council for being a pleasure to work with, their dedication to our school and care for other charities makes me extremely proud to work with them.
I can't wait to see what our next event will be.
At lunchtime today we met to prepare a short presentation for assembly this week. The children had to use their research skills to find new information to share with the rest of the school. The children did a great job at finding out how much money BBC Children In Need has made since it began in 1980, who and which charities our money helps, how much money was raised last year and various fundraising ideas. We then made cue cards to help us speak in order in assembly.
15/10/2018 - Children in need meeting
Today school council met and finalised ideas for Children in Need this year. The children decided that they would like to come in pyjamas and bring in a donation of £1. We shared our thoughts on why doing this kind of event is important and how to make it a success. The school council are now fully aware on what any money raised would mean to children who are not as fortunate as we are. We then spent the rest of our meeting designing posters to put around school to promote our event.
This week the School Council had a very important job at taking part in an interview process. They used their responsibility to discuss and decide on several questions that they would ask the candidates, Mr Johnston was really impressed to see how creative and useful the questions were. On the day, the children were very punctual and on time for the interviews and were extremely professional when asking their questions. House points were awarded for all their hard work.
