Palfrey Junior School
Our School Council is made up of one child from each class. To become a class representative on the council, children who were interested in the job had to give a speech describing; why they wanted to be on school council, why they would make a good school councilor and what they hoped to achieve. The rest of the class then voted for the candidate they thought would best listen to and share their ideas and thoughts. They are YOUR CHOICE for YOUR VOICE.
We really enjoyed helping out with the Macmillan Coffee morning on Friday 27th September. We helped to set out the tables with all the delicious cakes and biscuits that children, staff and parents had donated. We welcomed all of our visitors and helps selling the cakes and raffle tickets. We also set up the cake sale for the other children in school.
Palfrey Junior School raised a massive £697!!
School Council Elections
Well done to all the children who put themselves forward for the job of School Council Representative. I am pleased to announce that following manifesto speeches and a democratic class vote this years School Council has been selected. All our elected School Council Representatives have promised to;
School Council working hard sorting through all the children's suggestions.
We are also part of the CADMUS School Council- Mohammed and Asad go to meetings at Chuckery school to share all of our ideas with the other schools in the family. We were asked to come up with a mission statement about CADMUS. We asked everyone for ideas about what CADMUS meant to them and we got lots of great ideas. We used those ideas to create a motto and a statement.
School Council asked their classes to bring in plastic bottle tops for an art project that we will be doing in the summer as part of the WASUP Campaign- Walsall Against Single Use Plastic. WOW -what a response!!
Take a look at the fantastic art work created by Palfrey Junior School with all the plastic bottle tops donated. It was displayed at Walsall College as part of the WASUP exhibition.
They have already been busy distributing roles and responsibilities within the School Council, have created posters about themselves to display in their classrooms and are working on suggestion boxes for every class.
We have been given an exciting new job to do- we are now Digital Leaders. We will help support others in class and make sure all children know how to be safe online. Our first job has been to work with Mrs Rudge from Walsall LA to design a questionnaire for all the children to complete. We will then go through all the answers with Mrs Rudge and make a plan. We are going to be doing an assembly soon to let everyone know who we are and what we are going to be doing. So ..... watch this space....
We turned a 'grot spot' into a 'hot spot' with our art work. It has really brightened up the Year 6 cloakroom. We are proud of our art work and hope everyone else likes it too.
We went around school looking for areas that were hot and others that were grot. We really like our school, there are loads of great things to see and lots of hot spots like; the toilets are all new clean, bright and colourful, there are lots of amazing displays, we have a lovely playground with lots of equipment with lots of things to do and play with.
The only places that we thought were grot, were the cloakrooms between Cl 10 and 9 and Cl 11 & 12. We thought they were rot because they were plain, dull and boring.
So we have decided to create some colourful pieces of art work to display in the boring cloakrooms to improve them and turn them from grot to hot. Take a look at our action plan.
