Pupil Ambassadors now have their own school fleeces which they will wear around school and at school events. Thank you to Mrs Broadfield for organising this for us.
Pupil Ambassadors would like to thank you for all the donations for "Bags for Schools". Your bags were collected yesterday and we should know by the end of next week how much money has been raised
The children have spoken to Mrs Abraham about having a kitchen where we can learn to cook. So this term Pupil Ambassadors are raising money to go towards the new kitchen. Our first event took place on 21st October. We are very fortunate that Mrs Abraham has ordered us lots of new books for our Library. We needed to make room for them so we held a book sale and sold our old books. The children were very excited and were helped by Mrs Zentani, Miss Sheppard and Mrs Haines. We raised £126 towards our new kitchen.
Today (7/10/20) we held our first meeting, socially distanced of course! We discussed the roles of the ambassadors, and our ideas for making our school even better than it is. We had some fabulous ideas so watch this space to see what events will be coming soon!
Mrs Abraham and Bailey visited each class today to announce who had won the Pupil Ambassador elections. We will have our first socially distanced meeting very soon. Congratulations to the successful candidates.
We held a vote to see who we wanted to represent us as our class ambassadors...we chose 2 pupils in our class who we thought would be good representatives.
On Monday 21st September we shall be voting for the new Pupil Ambassadors for 2020/21.
Do you think you could be a good representative for your class?
If you would like to be an Ambassador please speak to your class mates and tell them why you would make a good Ambassador for your class.
We have received a cheque for £90 from Bags 2 Schools. Thank you to everyone who donated bags of clothes. This money will go into our new kitchen fund.
The Bags2schools van came to collect all the bags we have collected. They will now be weighed. Once weighed we will find out how much money we have raised.
Mrs Broadfield and Rights Respecting Pupil Ambassadors have launched Bags2School. We are collecting old clothes to be recycled. Our bags of clothes will be collected on 28th February. These bags will then be exchanged for cash. The money raised will go towards our new exciting classroom kitchen project. Please continue to send in your bags of unwanted clothes. Thank you for supporting us.
Mrs Zentani, Miss Kemp, Ellie and Laci B went to Clarks at The Fort to deliver the shoes we have collected for shoe share. We had eight bags of shoes to donate. Thank you for all your donations.
Shoe Share update...we now have three large sacks of shoes to deliver to Clark's...we have sorted the shoes into pairs. We hope to collect even more by next week
Pupil Ambassadors have launched shoe share in conjunction with Clarks. We will be collecting any unwanted shoes up until the 14th Feb. We will then take the shoes to our nearest Clarks store. They will donate the shoes to UNICEF who will distribute them to people in need. Please send in your unwanted shoes and put them in our wheelie bin in the main office. Please make sure they are in pairs and in reasonable condition. We have made posters to inform our pupils about the charity. Thank you for supporting us.

Festive Jumper Day!

Festive Jumper day. Friday 13th December
This year Pupil Ambassadors are organising a festive jumper day to raise money for Good Hope Hospital. The money we raise will help buy Christmas presents for patients who have to spend the holidays in hospital.
We are aware that not all of our children celebrate Christmas, and we don't want your parents spending lots of money on Christmas Jumpers.
So... this will be a non uniform day, you can wear a Christmas Jumper or something festive. Please donate £1 which will go towards our fund raising. Good Hope Hospital have said for ever £1 we collect we can keep 50p for school. This would help us to buy some equipment for school.
