School Council 2017-18
Care For A Bear
The ‘Care For A Bear’ initiative, organised by School Council raised £925.71.
Children brought a little wooden bear home with suggested activities to help to care for him/her. They looked after their bear and collected donations to help support the work of Myton Hospice. Well done to all our pupils who helped to raise funds for this important local charity.
NSPCC School Council Penalty Event
It was a freezing cold February morning when eight determined Year 6 children and one Associate Headteacher braved 3°c weather and spent the day fielding penalty shots and organising nearly 400 children to raise money for our School Council charity the NSPCC. Following an assembly by Deborah Sharp from the NSPCC, where the children learnt how Childline helps at risk and vulnerable children, School Council decided to host a penalty shoot out as part of the Big Workout campaign.
It was a very successful day, thoroughly enjoyed by all the children. The School Council Committee, chaired by Fraser Grant-Rae, planned, ran and inspired the children to take part in the event and what an amazing job they did. A spectacular amount of money has been raised, over £3000! We explained to the children that it didn’t matter how big or small the amount was it was important to get as many people to support them as possible.
Thank you to everyone at home and in the community who sponsored the children.
