Walk To School Campaign
The student council are currently running the Walk To School campaign across the school. The aim of the campaign is to reduce the amount of traffic outside of school during busy periods and encourage the pupils to make a healthy choice towards an active lifestyle.
Children are encouraged to walk to or from school at least once a week. The school council monitor this and award children with a badge if they are able to walk to school at least once a week for the full month.
The school council have been running this campaign in school now for over 4 years.

Oscar Romero Cross Design Competition
All of the children in school took part in a competition to design a cross, taking inspiration from Oscar Romero. The student council narrowed down the entries and selected the final winner. Below, the children are pictured with the winning entry, designed and produced by Grace Carne in Class 14.
The student council have been working along side Mrs Darnton to create a set of online safety SMART rules for our school. They have helped to create a school poster and considered a design and layout to suit our school and make it accessible for all children.
The school council are currently working with their classes to feedback ideas for this fundraising initiative. The chosen event, to support Alice House Hospice, will take place in January 2018.
