Agenda 4 - Operation Christmas Child
 
During our Hands of Friendship Week, we launched our school campaign for Operation Christmas Child. We are asking St Matthew's children to donate a shoebox full of items for Christmas which will be sent to a child less fortunate than ourselves. At our school assembly, the children seemed very enthusiastic to take part and have already started bringing them in to school. Filled shoe boxes should be returned to school by 1st November, please!
Agenda 3 - School Dinner Surveys. 
 
The school council have been busy compiling, distributing and collecting school dinner surveys throughout the school. We are now collating and analysing the results to present to our lunchtime staff at a meeting on Tuesday 17th October. 
The children all loved coming to school in their jeans for Jeans for Genes Day, We have raised £335 to help improve the lives of children with life-altering genetic disorders. A big thank you to all who donated and to the School Council for organising it! Our winners for the "Design Jeans For Sponge Bob" competition have been picked and the entries have been sent to London to enter the national competition.
Agenda 2 - Genes for Jeans
 
This week, we have been advertising and  organising our Jeans for Genes Day, to be held in school on Friday 22nd September. We are asking everyone to pay £1 to wear jeans and raise awareness for this worthy cause. On Friday, we will be collecting money, running a 'design the jeans competition' and taking lots of pictures of our event...so watch this space for news!

Agenda 1 - Playground Equipment
 
 
Our Councillors have been busy asking their classes what playground equipment they would like for our yard. We have collated ideas, ordered equipment and thought about budgets. Today, we sorted out the first delivery and thought about where they should go on the playground. Using maps of the yards, we plotted zones and what equipment should go in each, taking into account space and safety. 
 
First mission accomplished - well done Councillors!
 
Hello and welcome to our school council pages. We have been very busy since the start of the term listening to pledges from potential candidates, then voting in our final council for this year.
