Meeting One: 1st October 2019
After our Council election, we held our very first meeting, with our new councillors, Ella and Oliver from Foundation, Jasmine and Harvey-Jay from Year 1 and Henley and Dominic from Year 2. We are all very excited to see what the year ahead has in store.
Our first job from Mrs Whitton was to have a look at the school's new Safeguarding Policy. Mrs Ballard explained in a way we would understand, what Safeguarding was and how important it is to speak out if we are worried about our friends or aren't happy with something we are experiencing. We all decided that Safeguarding is important and all signed the policy.
Mrs Ballard promised to bring us some biscuits to the next meeting and she says she has something to tell us about a Christmas tree.....
Meeting Two. 11th November 2019.
This really was a meeting with a difference ! The Postmill Centre invited us at The Green to decorate a Christmas tree! Every child in our school decorated something special to hang on our tree and today we had the most exciting job of decorating the tree. We walked very sensibly with Mrs.Ballard to The Postmill Centre where we met our new friend Margo.
Margo works at The Postmill Centre and showed us where our tree was and we got cracking ! Mrs Ballard gave us three rules. 1. Coats off, 2. Hats on , 3. Have fun ! We had a great time hanging all of our friends decorations on the tree and we think it looks beautiful . Our new friend Margo thought it looked so beautiful she gave as a special treat of orange juice and a snack. When we got back to school Mrs Ballard told Mrs Whitton how well behaved we were and what brilliant school representatives we are.
We hope you love our tree as much as we do !
Ella ,Oliver, Harvey-Jay, Jasmine, Henley and Dominic
End of Year !
It's so hard to believe we have almost reached the end of 2019 ! The school council have been very busy indeed. At our last meeting we thought of questions to ask our peers to find out if they feel safe in school. These questionnaires were completed in school and issues highlighted by the children have been dealt with straight away. One of the issues were wobbly shelves in the hall, Mrs. Whitton got straight on the phone and our caretaker came and fixed them.
Our last meeting of the year was held on Sunday the 1st December. The Post Mill Community Centre, invited us along to the South Normanton Lights Switch On , held in the market place. We sang some carols and helped to to a big countdown. We had to use our biggest voices to say... "5 , 4 , 3 , 2 , 1 , LIGHTS" . What a lovely surprise it was to see the tree looking so pretty with its lights sparkling.
Ella, Oliver, Harvey-Jay, Jasmine, Henley , Dominic and Mrs Ballard wish you all a Merry Christmas.
