2018-2019

2018-2019 is a VERY exciting year! Miss McCulloch & Miss Tarlowski are thrilled to lead the school council this academic year.  We are really please with the events and improvements so far, especially our regular lunch time meetings where we share ideas. WATCH THIS SPACE!

COMING UP IN SPRING AND SUMMER...

 

BUDDY STOP!

The amazing School Council were asked to consult their classes about any improvements that could be made in school.  Many children agreed that there could be more done for children who were feeling a bit lonely on the playground. The council members came up with the brilliant idea of a 'buddy stop' on each playground.  This will be a place where children can go if they are feeling a bit lonesome and would like some company.  School Council are announcing a competition over February half term.  Pupils are invited to make a buddy stop sign.  Two winners will be chosen and made into buddy stop signs.  We will be reusing benches that are no longer required elsewhere in school so we are also doing a great job at reusing unwanted items too!

COMIC RELIEF - 15TH MARCH

It's coming - be prepared to have FUN and raise money!

!Summer Fair and Old Basford's FIRST Enterprise Project!

Each class will be loaned a set amount of money.  They will be asked to create products or experiences to sell at the Summer Fair. The aim is to raise as much money as possible for the school!  Pupils are then required to pay the 'loan' back.  Which class will raise the most money?

AUTUMN 


 

PROUD POUNDS

The School Council asked their classes what rewards children would like at school. This was to be linked to the school's current proud points system.  Together, we came up with a cracking list of tempting rewards that children could choose to 'buy' at the end of term, or 'save' to buy at a later date.  The system worked really well at the end of Autumn term.  Some children chose to spend all of their proud pounds, some spent a little and  saved some, while some children saved ALL of their proud pounds to swap for a bigger reward later in the year!

CHILDREN IN NEED NOVEMBER 2018

A fantastic time was had by all! Our theme was 'spots' and we dressed up in spotty things, donating some money to do so.  The School Council split into teams and selected a fancy dress winner form each class.  Class 11 raised the most money from getting dressed up.  WELL DONE! We also sold donated cakes during the week.

WE RAISED AN INCREDIBLE £495

Result of School Council Elections - Monday 17th September

Our School Council members are elected at the beginning of each school year. Two children represent each class from Year 2-6. Each council member is elected by their fellow class mates. Each one makes a brief presentation to their class as to why they would be a good representative. Class teachers are usually very impressed at the standard of those children who put themselves up for election. We enjoy working together to improve the school, provide a strong student voice for our school and raise money for worthwhile causes.

School Council

Congratulations to both Shivam and Zofia who this week represented Old Basford School within our Primary Six Partnership Parliament.

They worked alongside children from other local schools to help create and organise an event for each school involving being PROUD of their school and its local community. 

 

We look forward to seeing their plans and ideas come into our school next half term.

WE SCHOOLS

 

 

We had a marvelous whole school assembly ran by Katy from the WE movement. She told us lots about how she used her talents to help her deal with being bullied. She also told us about how we can take action and make a difference in the world. School Council and Eco Council then took part in some workshops where the explored issues that were important to them. The children then began to make an action plan and thought about projects they would like to do and charities they would like to help.

We had a fantastic turn out for our first coffee morning of the year! A huge thank you to all of the parents/carers who came and enjoyed some delicious tea and cake and an extra special thank you to all staff and parents who donate cakes towards the cause. We managed to raise a fantastic £140 for Macmillan Cancer Support. A big thanks to Year 6 student council who helped on the day, you were fantastic.
