During the first week back at school in September, each class will be holding an election to choose their new school council members for this year.
We have lots of exciting projects this year so keep looking for details of our meeting minutes and recent photographs of our achievements.
Our first meeting took place in September where we updated our display board and decided on our first course of action - we received a letter from Mrs Beard who urgently needed our help to save money on our utilities bills!
We put stickers around school to remind everyone to turn their light switches off and taps as well as reminding our classes and teachers to be more careful!
At the moment (October 2017), we are working really hard to improve our lunchtime behaviour - School Council members are monitoring the dining hall, playground and corridors and will be choosing pupils for a special award in each star of the day assembly!
As of January 2018 - The School Council have begun working with The South Area Tidy Team, Barnsley Council and Jump Environmental Group. Each class has participated in a litter pick - collecting over 50 bags of rubbish from our community! We were shocked at just how much rubbish we found. From this, we began to think about the importance of recycling in order to make our community a better place. We have some very exciting projects coming up over the summer term including our very own eco-greenhouse - watch this space for more details!
