School Action Team Elections
Our children elected their school action team. On Friday 1st October 21, they were shortlisted by their class mates. They read out their manifesto before 5 children were selected. The polling booths will be set up in the hall so that the children could cast their final votes. Children voted for 2 children from their class.
Our children attended the Pupil Parliament to discuss what they wanted as their Global Goals!
Rights Respecting Gold Award
We hold our 'Rights Respecting' Gold Award. Our School Action Team played a big part in representing our school and sharing our school ethos with the assessors.
Our school action team wanted to adress the parking issues outside our front gates. They had a discussion and felt it would be appropriate to assemble outside school to make our views know. We made banners, wore light reflective jackets and invited our head of school, Mrs Croke and our local MP, Mike Kane to join us.
