Australia Enrichment Day - Friday 14th February 2020
We have decided to celebrate Australia Day, learning about the country and raising money. With the recent events and devastation in Australia with the loss of wildlife and homes destroyed it is aboslutely heart breaking. The estimations are that up to half a billion of Australia's unique wildlife has already been lost - the koala population alone has been decimated.
This is a non-uniform day and children can come into school wearing the colours of the Australian flag - red, white & blue or Australia National/Sports colours - green & gold/yellow. To help raise money we are asking for a voluntary donation of your choice - all money raised will be sent to WWF Australia.
Thank you for your support
The aims of the School Council are to provide support to not only the school itself but also charities. Money raised for school is used effectively in order to make the school a better place.
School Council have led some Thursday assemblies where they can discuss their role and remind other children of their duties.
The School Council collectively think of ideas in how to raise money. Regular meetings take place and everything is well planned.
'We are the school council and we have a voice.'
What we do
We ask children for any ideas or worries they have, or things they would like to change at school. We then meet as a team to talk about these ideas to make the school better, and make it more fun for everyone. We see if we can do anything ourselves first, then we decide if we need to speak to the teachers. After a school council meeting we have some time with our class to feedback any decisions or ideas.
We think the School Council is very important because it is a way we can tell teachers what the children think about the school and how we think it can be even better.
Things we have done
So far this year we have raised money for numerous charities including Jeans for Genes day, Pink day and Children in need day. We also had some input in Diwali Enrichment Day.
We are looking forward to meeting and raising even more money!
Why we like being on the School Council

We get to make decisions
We get to meet and share ideas
We are part of making the school better
