Meet our School Council teaching team for 2020-2021!
Autumn School Council competition
During the Autumn term, our school councillors have taken part in a ‘Road Sweeper Competition’. This campaign was led by Walsall Council who pledged for children to create a poster that would be presented on the side of one of 7 local sweepers. The purpose of this was to encourage everyone to keep our environment clean. For the competition, the children were asked to create their own poster for the chance to have their design and chosen sweep name printed on one of the new local road sweepers! School council discussed with their classes the importance of keeping our local area and our school clean and tidy. School councillors fed back to their classes and we had a number of fantastic entries from lots of our pupils. It was brilliant to know that some of our children were runners up in the competition in Years 3 and 4 and we are very pleased to announce that one winner was chosen from Blackwood School - Theo Petrie in Year 5! Well done, Theo!
Upcoming project ideas
Miss Neuenhaus and the KS1 school council team
Next we will be looking at saving energy in school by making sure everyone is turning off lights and other electrical appliances when they're not being used.
Miss Brady, Mrs Bradbury, Miss O'Dowd and the KS2 school council teams
The Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 and 6 school council teams are currently making a decision on suitable equipment they would like to purchase to support P.E lessons and playtimes. The children will feedback to their classes and following that, they will have a meeting with Mr Pearce (our PE Lead teacher) to share their findings and most desired equipment.
We have also joined the ‘Superbug Health Initiative’. The initiative educates children on superbugs, vaccines and viruses and pandemics in the context of today’s world. It explains how and why we all need to take responsibility for our own health in order to save lives. The initiative holds a competition with fantastic prizes encouraging learners to create their own public health message. The school council’s role will be to share the information with their classes- encouraging them to create their own public health message.
Well done to all our school councillors and school council lead teachers for your hard work this term. We look forward to taking part in your next upcoming projects!
