We have been very busy these past few weeks planning for Children in Need. We sold headbands and Wrist bands everyday as well as organising a non uniform day. Once we have counted all our donations we will let you know how much money we have raised.
We have been finding out about Child Activists, children who have used their voice to make a difference in the world. Next week on Universal Children's Day we shall be sharing these amazing stories with the rest of the school.
Look out for our Hawthorn Tree of Dreams!
We have been very worried about the parking outside school and the speed of the traffic. During road safety week we shall be asking parents to sign a petition to ask the Council for a crossing. Please support us by signing the petition.
We will be organising a shoe appeal shortly in partnership Clarks Shoe Shop...details to follow.
Pupil Council want to help people in the wider community, we know Christmas is an expensive time of year for families so we tried to think of a way we can help others less fortunate than ourselves that doesn't involve us raising money.
Mrs Broadfield explained to us that her family volunteer to help homeless people and during the cold winter they need extra warm clothing as well as blankets.
So... we thought this was an excellent project for us to support.
Next week we would like you to donate any old jumpers, hats, scarves or blankets you may have and on Saturday 5th December these will be distributed to the people living on the streets of Birmingham.
If you can help us please send any items into school next week.
Lets help keep people warm this winter.

This is years theme is "Champions of Change" we would like you to dress up as a profession or person who has made a positive change to our world.

Welcome to The Pupil Council page
Our Pupil Council has been set up to help ensure that all our pupils throughout the school have a voice.
We value every child's opinion and idea. The Class representatives from Year 1 to 6 meet regularly (every Wednesday) in order to contribute ideas on behalf of their class, discuss, listen to others and to help create change where and when necessary at Hawthorn.
Keep looking in on this section of the website in order to find out more about what's going on in Pupil Council!

Our elections took place in May 2015. Alongside the rest of the country we took to the ballot box to vote for our class representative. The votes were counted and the new Pupil Council elected. The out going Pupil Council held a picnic to celebrate their year of office.
