Operation Christmas Child

Image
Once again this year, the School Council have wanted to help less fortunate children around the world by organising and taking part in Operation Christmas Child.
We had over 60 shoe-boxes handed in and were very pleased to deliver them to the charity Samaritans Purse, who oversee the shoe box appeal.

Thank you to all for your kind donations!





Adventure Playground Success

Image
During the recent Parliament Week, the School Council got the chance to put their case forward for the school to vote for new adventure playground equipment.

We worked very hard on our campaign, creating a very strong presentation and arguing our case for the benefits of our idea!

We were so pleased when later that day, we found out that we had won the vote, and that new adventure playground equipment would be the school's next big project! 

We can't wait and we thank all of the children who voted for us. 


Poppy Appeal

Image
The School Council have once again taken responsibility for selling poppies and other Poppy Appeal items before school. We hope to raise as much money as we can...but time is of the essence as Friday  9th November is the last chance for you to buy anything you would like from us!

Harvest

Image
The School Council led a Harvest Assembly on Thursday morning, celebrating the hard work that farmers, farmworkers and shopkeepers do to provide us with enough food to eat.  As part of the celebration, we asked for your donations of food and have been inundated with hundreds of items.   
Thank you to all of you who have donated food to provide a spectacular display in the hall. Your donations will be delivered  to the Caring Hands Foodbank very shortly and will be used to support those people in our local community who are in most need.

Again, a huge thank you! Mr Forrester and the School Council 





Litter picking team

Image
Recently, the School Council asked if they could start a lunchtime litter picking team.  A sub-committee was formed and the Councillors organised black bags, gloves and litter pickers.  They have been out in force, cleaning up litter during their lunch times! A very commendable group indeed!







Macmillan Coffee Morning

Image
Mrs Manion, Mrs Whitehouse, the School Council and other members of staff worked hard recently to organise a Macmillan coffee morning to raise money for the charity.
Many, many delicious cakes went on sale, as well as hot drinks, and the School Council assisted by serving and chatting to the people who joined us!










Battle of Britain Remembrance Service

Image
On Friday 14th September, members of the School Council, alongside other year 5 representatives, took part in a remembrance service to commemorate those who had lost their lives during the Battle of Britain.
The service is particularly relevant to Evesham, as Evesham hospital was used used as a joint RAF and Canadian Air Force hospital during this time.

We represented our school flawlessly and were glad to have been given the opportunity to pay our respects to the service men and women who sadly lost their lives.
