We have held our first meeting of 2016. During the first few weeks of this term we shall be monitoring the corridors and hall at lunchtimes to ensure children are walking around our school in the correct manner. We are also monitoring the toilets as we find that tissue is being dropped on the floor. Please help us by trying to keep the toilets tidy and remember to always wash your hands after you have been to the toilet. Look out for our posters which we are making this week!
We have now delivered our blankets and warm clothing to the homeless people. Thank you for your donations.
Helping the Homeless.
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.
