School Council 2017-18
United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) Article 12 states:
“Every child has the right to have a say in all matters affecting them, and to have their views taken seriously”
This year the School Council has a new link with the school in Otavi, Namibia and has organised for the red sweatshirts we used to wear to be taken there in the spring term.
Over the half term the School Council and House Captains have worked with Mrs. Mira Howard to prepare a powerpoint all about the school in Otavi, Namibia and the journey of our sweatshirts.
We were really thrilled that Mrs Howard came into school on Monday 13th March to collect our letters and to talk to the the school about her trip which starts on the 23rd March. You can click on the link below to see the powerpoint that Kara, Max, Ruby and Mia have produced with Mrs Howard.

The School Council takes responsibility for working with the Senior Leaders to identify and lead whole school projects throughout the year. Last term one of the School Council projects was to organise the purchase, storage and playtime charter for new school games and equipment to be used at playtimes. This was a highly successful project and has really made playtimes much more fun!
