Red Nose Day
The school council surpassed themselves by organising the school's red nose day! They decided to set up a sports course in the hall and each class had 15 minutes during the day to complete the course. Each child made a contribution to the Red Nose fund to take part. Our school councillors ran the event by managing a sporting 'stall' each. The children LOVED it and we were very vocal about their enjoyment.
The school councillors have been working in conjunction with Plastic Free Communities and a parent of a child in the school to recycle crisp packets. Crisp packets are not widely recycled and so we have collected them and sent them to a special recycling plant to reduce landfill!
A growing concern for the environment....
The school councillors have recently been involved in raising awareness and doing our bit for the environment.
They met with a campaigner for a plastic-free Warwickshire (please see their facebook page: plastic free Leamington and Warwickshire).
The children have since (in association with one of our parent Mrs Elliot) a lunch time scheme to collect and recycle all crisp wrappers.
Radford School councillors have been very busy finding out the views of children in the school. They have asked about where children would like to see the school change. The children have spoken and made it clear that at playtimes and lunchtimes they would like to see calmer interactions between their peers.
To help support this the school councillors have planned and delivered (autumn term II) an assembly on how children should best conduct themselves on the playground based on what the school feedback to them.
