School Council

Welcome to the School Council Page

We have chosen our School Council for this year and they are now proudly wearing their badges.

Children across school prepared speeches and presented their ideas to their class, before a rigorous voting system decided who had won. They were then announced to the school.

One speech began as follows:

Good morning honourable teacher and delightful pupils of Naburn School.  I stand before you today as  a charismatic candidate for School Council. I assure you that I will work hard on your behalf, listen to your ideas and do everything in my power to make this school the best it can be. …….

How could anyone fail to be persuaded?

We want to make our school the best we can. If you have any ideas to make Naburn school even better, come and see one of us.

Your School Councillors, 2016-2017

Latest School Council News

In 2015-16, the School Council worked hard together to raise funds for a defibrillator in the village. They held cake stalls, collected money in buckets and generally raised awareness of this cause. Waitrose even chose us to be a Charity of the Month, so raising more money.

We are pleased to announce that we have now completed this project, with the help of a very generous grant from Wheldrake Ward Committee. The School Council presented a cheque to the Village Council at our Songs around the Christmas Tree event in December. We are now waiting for the defib to arrive.

We run a healthy ‘Tuck Shop’ on a break time. We charge 10p to 30p for items and it is a great way of raising funds, keeping us healthy and giving us a bit more energy to do our work! So win, win!

We have also just chosen a new scooter pod to park our scooters in, after winning the CYC ‘Scoot to School’ Competition in Walk to School Week. We have decided on a red and yellow pod because that will be bright and cheerful, like our school.

Here we are trying to decide where to put the scooter pods.

Here is the one of the pods in use!

We are now working closely with Christine Packer from CYC to improve parking and traffic around school. For example, we have asked children in school to design posters to alert motorists to the 20mph speed limit near school and we are leading an assembly about this focus after Easter.

 We meet every week, so look out for more of our ideas here.
