Children in Need
Friday 17th November 2023
Christ Church School Council have been talking about what we should do for Children in Need. Children across school have voted for non-school uniform and extra play. Our theme is yellow and spotty or any bright colour. Please donate what you can to take part.
AND why not pay for extra play?!
Let's see how much we can raise this year for such a good cause!
Talulah, in Year 3, has raised money for the school by climbing one of the highest mountains in the UK. She has donated the money to spend on playtime equipment. The School Council designed a questionnaire for the school to find out the equipment children would like. We are looking forward to receiving our new playtime equipment.
We've had a very special day today in school holding elections for our new School Council Representatives.
Juniors all went to vote in our official polling station, modelling a realistic democratic election process.
Ballots have been cast, counted and representatives elected. Two of our older representatives will also have the important job of attending Cole School Council meetings in the town's council chambers, working with other local schools and the local community.
Our new members will be announced next week!
Well done to all standing in the elections, it's a tough process!
A truly democratic process!
The School Council have asked all classes about fundraising and we have all agreed across school that rather than collecting for Comic Relief this year, we would like to prioritise raising money for the earthquake appeal in Turkey and Syria. We will be holding a sponsored non-stop relay event for the whole school on Wednesday 22nd March. All classes will take it in turns to be part of the afternoon’s non-stop relay. Children will need trainers and jogging bottoms or leggings on this day.
Please donate what you can to support this natural disaster appeal!
Want to be a Playtime Buddy?
Don't forget to complete your application form and bring it back by Thursday 2nd February!
The School Council and Worship Council have been working hard together this lunchtime making final preparations for friendship day.
Don't forget, you can buy sweets at the end of the day and all money will go towards buying friendship benches!
We will also be looking for those children who want to train as Playtime Buddies!
The School Council would love to thank Friends of Christ Church who are running a coffee and cake afternoon to contribute to our fund raising
and a huge SHOUT OUT to Tracey Bolton for fetching and making up all our sweet bags!
It's a great team effort
Following our school survey, we found out that all children feel happy in school but sometimes some children don't always feel safe in the playground and some are worried they don't always have friends to play with. We have decided to solve this problem! We are planning lots of things through the year but to get it all going we are starting off with...

Thank you for supporting us!
A big thank you to our fantastic School Council for organising Children in Need fundraising today. Children dressed up in yellow, spots or Pudsey Bear outfits, enjoyed buns baked by Mrs Sutton and have taken home colouring competitions. We have raised over £320 so far! Thank you everyone!
We are looking for people who have a bit of spare time and experience building and/or gardening to help us create calm and relaxing spaces in our playgrounds. We would really like to make some benches and flower planters to make quiet areas for playtime. We would also love to have donations of wood and pots or containers. We hope you'll love to help!
We had our first School Council meeting this week, on Thursday 22nd September. We talked about what our roles and responsibilities as School Council members are and I'm pleased to say that from next week, Jamie in Year 6, will be our speaker and Reggie in Year 4 will take the minutes. Heidi and Bethany will have a go at managing this web page and Lucy and Amber will take care of our communications through our school notice board. Other members will join in and help whenever they can!
The Council decided to conduct a survey across school to collect children's views about school and see if there is anything we can do to improve it. Together we discussed the questions we could ask and talked about how we would manage it. Hopefully, we'll find out that there are lots of great things happening here to keep us all safe and happy!
Welcome to our School Council page.
Our second week back at school has been an exciting week! Our School Council members have been elected! It's been a hard fought battle with so many children putting a lot of time into their nomination process, applications and speeches, before a vote in each class. It has been a truly democratic process, reflecting our British Value of democracy, an essential part of our culture.
We'll be meeting every Thursday lunchtime to discuss issues in school that are important to us and we'll be looking to organise and lead events, sometimes to raise money for charity. So watch this space to see what we're getting up to!
A big THANK YOU to all who took part and well done to our winners who will be announced on this page next Tuesday..
