Throughout the course of the year, our school council meet regularly to voice the opinions and needs of their peers and work alongside teachers to improve school life. Any ideas that children may have can be passed onto school councillors who will discuss these at our meetings with Mrs McKie.
This year’s school council project is a challenge open to all Strand Schools and it invites schools to run their own ‘Creativity Challenge’ with a focus on Equality and Diversity. The suggested categories are:
- Design a poster
- Create a piece of writing (short piece; essay; story; press report; letter etc.)
- Compose a poem
Whatever the creation is, it must have an Equality and Diversity theme or focus.
Work created by pupils and selected by schools as suitable for public viewing will be exhibited at the Celebration Event on July 5th 2018 at CLAC.
Last year we were involved with a very exciting project working alongside STAND Partnership schools to create a virtual map of Bootle History.
In 2015 the School Councillors raised money for the Oliver King Foundation with their aim to provide defibrillators within the local community.
Oliver Passed away suddenly in March 2011, aged 12, from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS). Oliver’s parents have set up the Oliver King Foundation to help raise awareness of the condition as it can be controlled and monitored if detected. The money raised by the school contributed to the purchase of defibrillators placed in local sports centres and shopping centres etc. and assisted staff with relevant training.
