The School Council is made up of two Councillors from each class in Key Stage 1 & 2. Each Councillor is elected by their class mates at the start of the school year and is the voice of the class and school. Councillors usually meet every other Thursday and meetings are chaired by Mrs Stevenson.
Jeans for Genes day!
On Friday September 21st 2017 Roundwood Primary School wore Jeans for Genes. This was in aid of the charity Genetic Disorders UK, who work tirelessly to provide resources and support for those who have a genetic condition. As a School we raised an amazing £345.40. What a great start to this academic year!
Children in Need
On Friday 17th November 2017 the School council had asked all members of Roundwood Primary School to dress up as an emoji! Our favourite costumes were the bunch of grapes, the blue and yellow Shock faced emoji and the heart shaped emojis. It was great to see such an array of colour and creativity from everyone. We also completed a cake sale after school and this combined with the fancy dress helped to raise a wonderful £400.20 – Well done everyone at Roundwood!
During the spring term we focussed on our views of the behaviour policy and how we think it could be improved. We have handed our ideas to the leadership team of Roundwood Primary.
We also completed a pupil survey to see what others’ wanted to improve the School. We asked for more football nets, sports equipment and equipment for the Key stage one playground. We are happy to announce that these things have been granted to us to improve our P.E. lessons, break and lunch times.
During the week beginning the 17th – 23rd March 2018, it was Sport relief. As a School we worked together to help raise money for various worldwide projects such as; helping mental health, for anti-malarial drugs and maternal and child health care in Africa. As the School council, we decided that classes should complete 5 sporting challenges throughout the week and on Friday the 23rd we decided to dress up as a piece of sporting equipment to raise awareness. It was a fun filled week and our favourite costumes on the Friday included: Swimming pools, shuttlecocks, a P.E. shed, giant tennis balls, giant footballs and even Mrs Webb as a huge banana representing what athletes might eat!
We have updated our website and will be looking to plan another week of exciting activities for charities!
