School Council minutes 23.9.13

Fundraising for Ghana (visitor)
Beth has been to Ghana twice. As a medical student, she has had the experience of witnessing the drawbacks of healthcare in Ghana. She was very enthusiastic to understand exactly why Ghanaiin women chose not to got to hospital to give birth- this led to a high mortality rate, and Beth was keen to know why. She has worked to encourage women to go to hospital to give birth, but because of this, hospitals resources have been stretched, which is why Beth wants to raise money.
School Council minutes 17.10.13

Fundraising ideas for Autumn Term: 
-          Non-uniform day: red, green and yellow.
-          Look into culture- Black history week?
-          Ghanaain food.
-          The children loved the beginning of Red Nose Day where there was a whole school event. They felt this united us towards a common goal. They would like to repeat this, and will open up to suggestions from the rest of the school.


A lot of children were unable to attend today due to Summer Concert rehearsal, therefore agenda of meeting is short.

No letters in the school council box and maple class are making a new box.

Maya is replacing Hannah as a rep from Maple class.

Suggestion from beech class – could we do a year 5/6 fundraiser for Childline?


10. 9. 13

Notice for next assembly – people playing football, please try to keep balls on the pitch as many children are going to first aid due to injuries from footballs. But also people not playing football (mainly KS1) need to make sure that they walk around the football pitch because this is why they are getting hurt.

Animal Club – in the mornings when they are cleaning out the rabbits- children are coming into the pen and trying to pick up the rabbits whilst they are being cleaned out. Children need to be reminded that they need to stay out whilst this is happened because they need to have special boiler suits.  Some school members have had the idea to make a sign to go on the gate to remind children.

Dinner report – very good but noisy when lining up in the que.
