Barrs Court have a brand-new School council who have been working very hard already as role model pupils and representatives in the wider community. The team is buzzing with ideas and they can’t wait to bring ideas from their peers to the forefront of our projects to make this school and even better place for learning and play!
Who we are…
We have been working very hard this year and we have achieved the following for our school:-
- Devised the new toilet rules ‘Code of Conduct’!
- A cake sale which raised £143.85 for the Wallace and Gromit Grand appeal.
- Oak benches for the school field from a local donation.
- We wrote to South Gloucestershire Council and asked them to repaint the yellow lines outside of our school.
- Developed ideas for the new school garden.
- Hair Raising day – raised £240 for the new school garden.
- Fruit Tuck – we devised a questionnaire and then changed fruit tuck so that the majority of people could have a whole piece of fruit as requested.
Cake Sale for Ukraine
As a school council we decide that we wanted to raise money to help the people in Ukraine that have been affect by the war. We decided to hold a cake sale. We raised over £800 for the DEC fund. Thank you to everyone to eat a cake!!!!
We are very proud of the leaders of our School Council who represented the school at The Children's Parliament. They took part in two live debates, and both showed great confidence to speak in front of over 250 people. Well done.
