Sun Safety!

30th June, 2019

The School Council met with Mrs Parr last week to propose a few outdoor criteria for the sunny days ahead.

They proposed:

  • Children wear a named hat outside, or a spare hat from the box in school
  • Remind children to drink lots of water
  • Put sunscreen on before you come to school
  • Please don’t wear sunglasses as they may get broken and could be dangerous
  • Could we possibly have the gazebos out for shade when it is hot? Reading/drawing area
  • MDSA’s to have a water jug and cups especially on the field
  • Could we have packed lunches out side?
  • Litter picking monitors in each class, changed weekly, to wear a green band or high viz jacket and make sure the playground and field are tidy every Friday
  • Could we possibly have the circus skills box outside in a coned off area?

Mrs Parr was very impressed with the School Councils ideas and has passed on these proposals to Mrs Griffin and the MDSA’s

  6. In the School Council, the children have suggested that the Friendship Stop is changed from its’ current position (too close to the Badger football pitch) to the circular bench – awaiting delivery. Football has been an issue at playtimes with both pitches being used. The Pupil Parliament has agreed to start a Football Free Fridays scheme to encourage children to play different games. Mrs Parr explained that the school had purchased replacement outside equipment for the gum trail and new playground markings to create a Keep Fit circuit.

Ball Games Poster

25.04.18 Today the School Council met to choose our competition winner. They were really pleased with all the wonderful entries and found it a difficult decision. In the end they based their decision on three factors; a poster that was bright and colourful, one that didn’t have too much writing and one that mentioned both keeping the ball away from the car park and the flowers. A big well done to the Y1 child who won and thank you to everyone who entered. The poster will be placed around the play ground, look out for it!
