Leaving a print…

This morning our year 6 school council members placed a hand print on the wall in the lunchtime club room, leaving a print before they depart Broadmeadow Junior School and move onto secondary school. All other school council members will leave their hand print during the first few days in September. The room is looking a lot brighter and will hopefully be enjoyed by children during the next academic year.

Time to paint…

Today all of our school council members changed into their ‘work’ clothes and they worked really hard to paint the hut that we use for our lunchtime club. The children chose the colour of the paint and ordered all of the materials needed for painting. Years 3 and 4 started first thing this morning and completed the main wall. Years 5 and 6 took over after break and finished off the side walls. The room is now looking very calming and will soon be ready to enjoy. Some time will now be spent tidying up and organisng the resources in the room ready for the new academic year in September. Thank you to all school council members. You did a fantastic job and the room looks great. And thank you to Mr Henry for supervising and helping with the cutting in of the more intricate areas!

Anti-Bullying Workshops – Year 6 Role Play

I would like to say a huge thank you to our year 6 school council members for their amazing contributions in preparing for and taking part in the anti-bullying workshops. The role play scenarios were fantastic and they performed really well. The commitment and enthusiasm to take part was really appreciated and made the workshops even more worthwhile. The children should be proud of themselves because I certainly was!All together anti-bullying

The school council have met twice so far this half term. We have newly elected roles, such as a chair person, promotions officer and communications officer. We have drawn up a set of rules for all council members and these will be shared soon. Our current project is preparing to paint the lunchtime club hut. Council members have been looking at resources needed and purchase costs. We plan to start painting after half term.

After looking at lunchtime club we decided it needed brightening up, so we will be decorating it, we have already started getting new furniture for which I think you will agree is very bright and colourful.

Exciting times for the Queens birthday

This has turned into a very exciting afternoon,

One of the packages for the Queens birthday has arrived – We had some fun checking everything was there and that everything fits.

Starting to get excited about the party now. We have started to come up with ideas for our school council assembly to introduce the plans to the infants and the juniors.

A meeting with the infants

Today was a very exciting day for the school council, we took a handful of members over to the infants to have a meeting with Miss Horton. The meeting was to present the school councils ideas about the Queens Birthday.

Miss Horton was very impressed with the ideas which will be presented in assembly in the Juniors and then the Infants to inform the rest of the school what will be happening.

A fantastic effort from all of the school council members with planning and preparation for this event. We are going to be very busy in the coming weeks.

Once again a huge thank you to all school council members

Well Done.

A belated message of excitement

Well, the school council have been working incredibly hard this term – even with Mr Barton away with year 6 at Kingswood.

The liter picking has continued and the school is looking much better well done team.

The newsletter was a complete success.

Now we are currently working on something top secret for Mrs Gaynor – so keep your eyes peeled on the School Council noticeboard for more information and for how you might be able to get involved.

Remember: Be proud of your school!
