Fundraising total for 2016/17 School Year is............
Friday 9th June 2017
Friends of St Joseph's called a School Council meeting to propose the idea of purchasing some sheltered seating to go around the trees by the school playground. It was a unanimous decision to go ahead with this, resulting in excitement and further discussion on which colours to go for.
The seating is made from recycled plastic that requires no maintenance and come in a choice of attractive colours. Each class was given a laptop for their School Councillors to view the product website and then a vote was taken on which colours would be popular.
It was agreed that we would purchase at least 2 rainbow seats, one red, one blue and one green if the colours are available.
We also tackled the problem of rubbish around the school playground and field by unanimously agreeing to purchase three brightly coloured bins for the playground, also made out of recycled plastic.
It was fabulous for the children to have a say on what we spend and for them to put their stamp on it by selecting colours. Well done to our school council for such a successful outcome.
What have we bought this school year 2016/17:
Nursery and Reception children's Christmas present from Santa on party day
New pump for the school pond in the quad area
Christmas Panto paid for all children
Dance session for each class on World Book Day with a professional Dance company
E- Safety day for Pupils, Parents and Staff
Refreshments for our Race for Life Sponsored Walk
New resources for displays
Circular tree seating and outdoor bins for the playground
New play equipment for the Nursery and Reception outdoor area
A NOTE FROM US........
Your generosity and support is overwhelming.....thank you!
The school budget is getting tighter so our help is needed more than ever to ensure that resources and equipment are kept up to date to aid the education of our children. If you can help in any way at all, I would love to hear from you!!
