Meet the team!
The School Councillors and Eco Warriors joined together to lead the whole school in Waste Week. The children had lots of fun creating three murals using recycled crisps packets. Thank you to the CHAPS for all your help!
It has been a very busy week selling cakes and collecting shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. The School Councillors would like to thank all those who supported the project. We collected 55 shoe boxes and raised £56.00 – Fantastic!
Operation Christmas Child project has officially begun!
The School Councillors invited some guest speakers, from the charity, to tell the rest of the school all about this project.
The School Councillors had a lovely time at Starbucks this week learning all about Operation Christmas Child. They are really looking forward to launching the project after half term.
During our school council meeting this week, the first item on the agenda was biscuits. All children voted in favour! We then looked through the suggestion boxes and discussed any future projects.
Well done to our new school councillors, we know that you will be an asset to our school!
To celebrate the end of their year and to recognise all their hard work, the 2017-2018 school councillors were invited to the Council House in Birmingham by Local Councillor Olly Armstrong.
Our 2018-2019 School Council Elections have taken place this week, good luck to all our candidates!
The school council have decided to take part in the ‘Send My Friend to School’ campaign and have called on the rest of the school to join them.
This project brings together thousands of children across the UK to speak up for the right to education, and remind world leaders of their promise that all children should get the chance to go to school. We have been making safety signs that we will be passing onto the Prime Minister via our local MP Richard Burden.
At our meeting today we have been sharing all your ideas from the suggestion boxes. Our next project will be presented in class next week, we hope you’re excited!
Representatives from the School Council served refreshments to the Parishioners after Mass and welcomed them to our St Patrick’s Day Parade.

We teamed up with Global Gang and Northfield Eco Centre to discuss how we can benefit from the 3 R’s - Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. This informative workshop has made us think twice when making our packed lunches!.
This week, representatives from the school council have been busy raising money to support Hannah Perry, who has been accepted on a University led 2 week placement, in summer 2018 to Laos in South Asia. During the two weeks, Hannah will be working in a local village school teaching English and of an evening will be caring for elephants at a Conservation Camp. The school council have been selling tickets to raffle off this large stuffed elephant.
Raffle tickets will be sold during break time in Miss Skerrett’s classroom.

Brake Giant Walk
As planned all the children from Reception to Year 6 took part in this annual event on 10th June 2015. This was a very successful event which all the children and adults enjoyed. We set off at 10am with everyone chanting for safer roads around all schools. We would like to thank everyone who raised money which came to a total of raised £430.14. Well done!
School Council Protest – 4th June 2015
Thank you to everyone who supported our protest for a reduction in the speed limit outside our school. We were delighted that our local councillor Steve Booton, and Teresa Deakin from our MP Richard Burden’s office joined us on the day. Others who lent their support which we very much appreciated were Trish Jones, Sue Robertson, John Robertson and Anna O’Driscoll, and all the parents/cares who took the time to sign our petition. Hopefully we will be presenting this petition at the Council House in the near future.
Road Safety Petition.
Well done to those School Councillors who have braved the elements to gather as many signatures as possible on our ‘Road Safety Petition’. There are plans to hold a protest on 18th May 2015 as we continue our campaign to reduce the speed limit outside our school.
