Thank you to everyone who brought in donations this week for the class hampers for Paignton Community Larder. It has been lovely hearing the children talking so confidently about why they are collecting food and linking it to Christmas spirit. The child pictured below in Reception was so inspired by the project that she has made a complete hamper of her own. She told me, ‘There are people with no food who need food and I wanted to help them eat because we should all be kind’. This is a great example of faith in action, from our youngest of children, living out our Gospel Values. #advent #gospelvalues #kindness
Sacred Heart raised a staggering £300 hundred pounds (and still counting) yesterday for BBC Children in Need. Thank you to everyone who bought merchandise or gave a donation to wear their pyjamas for the day.
Each new school year there is an election campaign in September. If you would like to be nominated for school council you need to make a poster explaining why you’re the right person for the job. Each class are reminded of the roles and responsibilities of the representatives and the skills needed for the role.
Every child who wishes to be considered for the role then gives a small presentation to the class. This enables the class to have an informed choice about who they would like to vote for. At the end of September an election takes place by secret ballot where the epresentatives across KS2 are elected.
Don’t worry if you don’t get nominated this time. You are still an important voice in the school. The School Council are representatives of your class but they speak for everyone, not just themselves. They need to share all ideas and concerns.
We always like to keep those people who are really keen as reserves so that they can take part in some activities too.
Tell your class representative your idea or concern or put a note in the School Council suggestion box in your classroom.
Your class representative collates all the ideas and issues at the workshops and decides which issues should be put on the agenda for discussion at the next school council meeting.
Informal workshops take place every Friday at lunchtime with Mrs Day, our link teacher. Formal School Council meetings take place once a half term.
