School Council 2018-19
Our school council consists of two members from each year group in Key Stages 1 and 2. Already this year the school council have held a cake sale to raise sufficient money to sponsor a guide dog and made a donation to the Guide Dogs for the Blind.
School Council news 29th March 2019
In our most recent meeting School Council have agreed to focus on being an Eco-School, they watched an introductory video and asked questions about their roles and responsibilities. This will be a major focus for the rest of the school year.
Look out for a virtual tour of the school, organised and filmed by School Council.
Report about our visit from GEMS Twickenham Primary Academy
On Wednesday 13th March 2019 we had a visit from GEMS Twickenham. First we got to know each other by playing a name game, it was fun because we had to remember everyone’s name, chosen animal and their action. We had snack with our new friends and then gave them a tour of the school.
We found out that Twickenham have the same core values, but our school rules are slightly different. We enjoyed sharing ideas with them about school council. We gathered around a table and had a meeting about what each school council did. We decided to look into having the same international charity to raise money for. During the talk about charities we shared ideas about how we raise the money. We talked about how we had a cake sale to raise enough money to sponsor a guide dog.
At lunchtime we ate together and then played outside. In the afternoon we went to the outdoor classroom and made journey sticks and looked for bugs. We had a lovely hot chocolate outside, it was a cold and very windy day.
Soon it was time for Twickenham to go home, we said our final goodbyes to our new friends. We agreed to have a joint meeting using FaceTime and we are looking forward to visiting their school in June.

A welcome speech for GEMS Twickenham that was prepared and delivered by one of our Year 2 School Council members.
I am six years old. I am a School Council representative. I love doing sports, my favourite is basketball. I am very glad to be touring you around at my school. I hope you will have a great time and find our school fascinating. Thank you for listening GEMS Twickenham.
