The School Council at Chalfont St Peter Infant School encourage the pupil voice with regard to the running of their own school. In this way, our children have a greater sense of belonging, become more confident when putting forward ideas and develop a greater understanding of the need to work co-operatively for the benefit of all.
The School Council members for 2019/20 are:
Jessica Poppy Charlie Olivia
Abbie Olivia Chloe Isla
Eva Ria Eashan Kate
The school council were proud to read this poem as part of our schools Harvest Festival. We learnt one line each and practised using our loud voices. We were a little nervous but performed brilliantly on the day.
Some of the school council were honoured to take part in the Chalfont St Peter Remembrance Parade. We lay the wreath from our school on the war memorial as part of the service. The whole school has been learning about the importance of Remembrance Day and why we should all wear a poppy with pride. As a whole school community we have sold poppies as part of the poppy appeal and all took part in the two minute silence.
Children in Need
School Council decided they wanted to do something for charity so we organised a cake and sweets sale for children in need. The staff kindly donated the cakes and sweets and the Year 2 school council children helped to run the stall. We raised £141.50 in total, a super amount all going to a very worthy cause!
When Mrs Jones retired she very kindly gave the school lots of bulbs to plant around the grounds. The school council loved planting them with the help of Mr Court. When the bulbs grow in Spring we will all remember the lovely Mrs Jones and her sunny smile.
Collecting for the Australian wildfires
The School Council decided they would like to try to help all those affected by the wildfires in Australia. They raised money by organising a 'guess how many sweets are in the jar' competition charging 50p a guess.
The children raised an amazing
all proceeds going to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery fund.
There were two lucky winner who guessed nearest to the total of 187 sweets (190) and they collected their prize in celebration assembly last week. Well done Ollie and Jessica!
