Last year's school councilors worked incredibly hard as a team to make some brilliant positive changes around school and organised many great events. We started our year with a trip to Westminster to learn more about the democracy of our society. This has helped with our teamwork when having to reach final decisions. Thanks to the school council we have been involved in discussions about how to improve our school, initiated new play time rules and routines agreed by the children and introduced a new 'marvellous manners' reward around school. One of our favourite projects was organising and leading the 'Woodloes got talent' competition where we watched and rated incredible talent from every year group. We also invited the professional sports team 'Wasps' to visit our school where KS1 and KS2 enjoyed a day with members of their netball team. In the summer term, we had fun designing a stall for the summer fair 'Guess the name of the donkey'. We raised over £60 with this great idea to support the Friends of Woodloes funds.
We also put much effort into raising money for some chosen charities:
Autumn A: £314.83 raised at our Macmillan coffee morning
Autumn B: £722 raised for Children in Need
Spring A: £200.03 for the Warwickshire air ambulance
Spring B: £920 for comic relief
Summer: £260 with a 'shades day' for Guide Dogs

This year, school council are kicking off their projects by organising a cake sale to raise awareness and money for Macmillan Cancer Support. We are working with Friends of Woodloes who are providing hot and cold beverages.
Thank you to everyone who generously provided cake donations to make this event a great success! We loved meeting with family members in the small hall to share cakes and drinks. It was an amazing turn out! We raised over £700 for a great cause!

We need your help!
We are taking part in the Don’t Bin It, Bag It competition to recycle unwanted and unwearable clothes, shoes and textiles from home, and with your help we could win up to £500 for our school.
We have given each pupil a competition pack to take home. These packs contain information on how to take part, and stickers for you to attach to the carrier bags of clothes etc. We have also included extra stickers so your friends, family and neighbours can also join in to boost our school’s total.
What happens next?
Start gathering all your old, holey and unwanted textile items in time for your next fortnightly collection. If you have any questions or need any more stickers, just ask!
