School Council

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
 

‚ÄčThe School Council's aims are:

  • to make the school a better place
  • to keep the school clean
  • to improve the school

Our Council is made up of 2 representatives from Years 3, 4, 5 & 6, usually chosen by their class teacher.  The Council meets weekly during term time to work on particular projects.

Eco Brick Flower/Veg Beds

Members of the School Council have been putting the donated 'eco bricks' to good use by making raised flower/vegetable in our garden area on the field.  Hopefully the beds will look lovely come the summer!

School Council ‘Suggestion Boxes’

Members of the school council have engaged their peers in discussions (within their classes) about ideas to improve the school.  Suggestions included; outdoor apparatus on the field, cookery clubs and other club ideas, updating the forest area with a path and trail, more benches for the field and fish tanks for key areas in the school.  The feasibility of these ideas, and the many other ideas raised will be investigated further.

 

 

 

House Shield Competition 2020

The school council committee from 2019/2020, previous to lockdown, had planned to run a competition for pupils to design a house shield (see below for details) to be hung in the school hall.  This competition has been rescheduled for this half term (first Autumn half term) and we are asking for entries via the attached form.  Paper copies can be obtained from the school office if required. 

 

At Preston Primary we have 4 houses: 

  •  Ranulph Fiennes (Red)
  •  Captain Cook (Blue)
  •  Helen Sharman (Green)
  •  David Livingstone (Yellow)

Each 'house' is allocated a colour as indicated above.  Please design a shield for your house including the background in the colour (as above).

 

Full details of the competition are attached.

Eco-Brick Challenge

Please help the school council fill plastic bottles

You will need a clean, dry 1.5 litre plastic bottle with lid.

Cut up clean, dry plastic items that cannot be recycled.

After each layer, compress with a stick to pack tightly.

Once full your bottle should weigh 500grams or more and should be solid, like a brick!

Have fun!
