SWINDERBY SCHOOL COUNCIL 2017-2018
The new school council has been formed. Each school councillor has a role. The year five and six children have taken on the roles of Speaker and Deputy Speaker and therefore lead the school council meetings alongside Mrs T.
Mrs T and the School Council have been busy already putting together their action plans for this term and plenty of fundraising ideas for charity... watch this space!
Friday 17th November- Children In Need!
'Let’s make Swinderby spotty for Children In Need'. Our day revolved around the slogan - ‘Show your spots, let’s raise lots!’ The school council organised a non-uniform day inviting all children (and adults) to come into school dressed spotty and donate a £1 for the privilege!
A spotty cake sale was also planned, organised and facilitated by the school council. Thank you so much for all your amazing cake donations!
We had a fantastic day raising money for a valued charity.
The school council are going to count up all the donations very soon so keep your eyes peeled for the final amount raised for Children In Need.
The school council would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved!
Meet the Swinderby School Council of 2016-2017!
On Friday 24th March we raised money for Comic Relief on Red Nose Day by wearing red noses and/or something red. Also we held a cake sale. Watch this space to find out the final amount raised.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SENDING IN SO MANY LOVELY CAKES.
From Mrs Lucas and the School Council.
Mrs Lucas and the School Council have been busy selling Red Noses ready for Red Nose Day on Friday 24th March. We have raised £80.00 for this good cause. Unfortunately the Red Noses have all sold but you can buy them from many retailers.
The whole school enjoyed World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March by dressing up as a book character and also bringing in a book to swap. Classes participated in their own book related activities and Mrs Lucas presented a World Book Day themed assembly.
Class 2 were fortunate to have two adults volunteer to read a book to the class. One being Milly Molly Mandy and the other The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. Thank you very much to Mrs Cook and Mrs Sumpter for giving up their time to do that.
Our next event will be Red Nose Day so watch this space.
Thank you for your support with Comic Relief's Red Nose Day. We have raised nearly £200 in all. Final figure to follow. The cakes were delicious and enjoyed by all. The children looked wonderful in their red clothing.
