School Council


Our School Council Need Your Help

Our theme this year is ‘helping others’. 

Christmas Shoebox Appeal

We would like to join in with the Christmas shoe box appeal this year and would like to make up 1 shoe box for each class that we can send off.  We would be very grateful if you could send in the following items:

  • WEAR: eg. scarf, woolly hat, gloves, underwear
  • WRITE: eg. crayons, pencils, paper, colouring books
  • WASH: eg. toothpaste, toothbrush, facecloth, soap etc.
  • WOW: eg. a game, puzzle, or sweets.

Our school council will then make up the shoeboxes and I will drop them off at Church on Sunday 10th November.  If you have any empty shoeboxes these will also be greatly received.

Plastic bottle tops

Our second appeal is for plastic bottle tops.  Over the next couple of months, we're going to be collecting plastic bottle tops. These bottle tops can then be exchanged as tokens towards helping disabled children such as Nicholas being able to get a wheelchair.  Please send your clean bottle tops with your children and they can add them to the class collection.

Many thanks in advance


Mrs Wallace


All classes are asked to vote for a boy and a girl to sit on the school council.  They meet regularly with Mrs Wallace and the head boy and girl and their deputies.  Over the next year their focus is to help others.
