We have now made sure that everyone knows who the school councillors are from every class! Democracy in action!
Our house assemblies will begin next week in order to elect new house captains for each house, as well as deputy house captains. Any pupil wishing to stand will present a short speech prior to the democratic voting process. Additionally, every class this week will be electing their school council representative, with individual votes being held.
We are pleased to announce that ‘The Great Toy Swap’ raised £484 towards charities supporting those affected by the recent terrorism attacks in the United Kingdom. The idea to raise money came from a Year 6 pupil, with all pupils voting from a selection of ideas in the QPA elections.
This week’s thought came from Sir Tim Berners-Lee, pioneer of the world wide web. The children learned about this significant Briton during today’s assembly and considered that he showed a high level of inter-dependence, grit, curiosity, trust and courage on the path to his amazing achievements.
‘We need diversity of thought in the world to face the new challenges.’
Sir Tim Berners-Lee
