PPHPS School Council

Making a positive contribution

What is a School Council?
Our School Council is made up of a group of pupils (2 from each class) who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve the School.
Each year voting takes place in the voting booths, for the children who have campaigned to be elected to the School Council. Mrs West then announces the children who have been successful in their campaigns in the next whole school assembly. The children are presented with their School Council badges during this time.

What does it do?
The School Council meets (with a teacher present) to discuss and sort out problems and ideas. These may include how we can improve our school, how we work together to help solve problems and to share ideas for fundraising events. Members of the School Council are responsible for carrying out ideas that they have agreed, such as planning charity events, meeting with local MP’s and putting forward views of other children in the School.

We hope you enjoy looking at our web-page.

 
Children in Need

Children at Pudsey Primrose Hill have been 'spotacular' today in their spotty non-uniform and are using their Maths skills to estimate how many spotty sweets are in their class treat jars. Earlier on in the week, the children received a surprise visit from Pudsey Bear during their certificate assembly and have so far raised over £400.00. We are very proud of our children

School Council British Heart Foundation Appeal

On Thursday, the main hall in school became a sea of red and white charity bags due to your extremely kind donations. As a school, we collected 271 bags which was beyond anyone's expectation - especially the van man who collected them. The School Council would like to thank the Friends Of Primrose Hill who helped organise the morning and decide on the classes which brought in the most contributions. This was Y2CL in Key Stage 1 and Y4K in Key Stage 2 although everyones contribution made us the largest donation the charity had ever seen from a school in Leeds. We are very proud of everyone who took part.

LGI Childrens Ward Christmas Card Appeal

The School Council have been involved in a project to raise money for children in the LGI this Christmas period. Instead of children sending Christmas Cards in School they have been given the option to bring in a donation and write a Christmas message on the School Council Christmas poster boards. From the kind donations received, Primrose Hill have purchased a variety of gifts including a play mat for babies awaiting surgery. Some members of the School Council, who were randomly selected, delivered the presents to the Childrens Ward and met staff who were extremely grateful for the kind gifts we had made.

Send My Friend To School Campaign 2016

School Council representatives, from throughout the school, led an assembly to their peers. The children shared information and work that had been produced to raise awareness of the fact that 37 million children are still missing out on school in crisis affected counties. This included paper rucksacks children had made in their classes which were filled with essential items as well as a giant rucksack which they used as a prop. We all enjoyed the surprise when a child appeared from one of the rucksack pockets to show the importance of friends. You can find out more about the campaign by following this link http://www.sendmyfriend.org/.

Send My Friend To School
During the summer term, the School Council are focusing on a new campaign titled Send My Friend to School. We are hoping to make a giant 3D world leader, out of boxes, and write “if I were a world leader…” messages on him. We have contributed to this campaign for the last few years.
Here is some information about it:
58 million children are still missing out on school. Girls, children with a disability, and those living in conflict are most at risk.
2015 could change their future. As world leaders meet to discuss the future of the world’s children in September, we will be asking children across the UK – if you were a world leader, what would you do to ensure every child could have an education?
Other information can be found on
http://www.sendmyfriend.org/.
 
Please keep checking our page to see any updates on the campaign.

 
Children in Need

Friday 13th November was Children in Need day. Children and staff looked fabulous dressed as superheroes Some came dressed in uniforms or work-wear for super hero jobs and others came as fictional super-hero characters. As part of the Children in Need Superhero focus, children throughout the school have visited the Super Booth in the school hall to share what they are Super at in front of the camera. The children had a lot of fun sharing and discovering the talents of their friends. Please look at below pictures and videos to discover some rare and wonderful talents of Primrose Hill.
