School Council Meeting 06.03.18

Mr Walker from South Tyneside Catering Service visited our school council members today to discuss our school dinners. He told the children all about the ‘Healthy Food Plate’ and they had lots of fun working together to sort the different types of food onto the correct part of the plate.

The school council members then talked about the healthy food they like on the current school menu, as well as the food they would like to see added to the menu. Mr Walker was very helpful and listened to all of their suggestions. He is going to make a draft of the final lunchtime menu and send it to the school council so that they can see what has been changed. Everyone is so excited to see the new menu!

School Council Meeting 20.02.18

In this meeting, the school council members thought about ways that they could change the school lunchtime menu to make it healthier. They decided that they would ask the children in their class what they would like to see on the menu and then discuss their findings with Mr Walker at South Tyneside Catering Service.

School Council Meeting 24.01.18

In this meeting the School Council members met up to discuss the results of the questionnaires that they had previously sent to each class to find out the children’s views on what sort of running track we should get for the school. The children came up with lots of great ideas for our running track and chose the most popular design, colour and layout for the track.

School Council Voting

We voted for our new school council members this week. Each child put their votes into a ballot box and the votes were counted up. Two children from each class were then chosen to be our new school council members. They are all feeling very excited!


School Council Meeting 17.07.17

This was the last school council meeting of the academic year. The children were incredibly pleased to have received a letter from Hospitality and Hope Food Bank thanking them for arranging the themed lunch, whereby all proceeds went to the charity to help individuals and families in crisis in the local community.

We had a little tea party as a celebration of all our hard work and everything we have achieved this year. Well done, everyone!


American Independence Day Lunch

The school council helped to organised an American Independence Day themed lunch on Tuesday 4th July and asked for a donation of 50p per child to go to the Hospitality and Hope Food Bank. The children really enjoyed their lunches. Thank you to everyone who kindly donated to this amazing charity and thank you to the lunchtime staff for organising such a lovely lunch!

School Council Meeting 26.04.17

In our previous meeting, Mrs Luke had spoken to us about the importance of the local food banks and the children were extremely interested in finding out more. In this meeting, we talked about what food banks do to help people and we decided to think of ways that we could raise money for the local food bank, for example by holding an ‘American’ themed day on 4th July.
