School Council

Our School Council team travelled to the Town Hall today to meet with the Mayor and to visit the different Council rooms. We were incredibly proud of how they represented the school, including their partaking of a debate in the Council Chamber. Democracy in action!

Visitor

Many thanks to Ms Drew for coming and talking to our School Council today about standing as a candidate for a local constituency. It was really interesting for the children to link their own election to office at QPA to national elections. Our children put themselves forwards for their positions to make a positive change and it is no different for the many candidates for office across the country, regardless of political persuasion.

Toy swap

Many thanks for the many donations that we have received for our charity toy swap. This event was was organised by the school council to raise money for the ‘Save the Children’ charity.

The toy shop will be visited by the children over the course of tomorrow. Each toy can be bought for £1 and all proceeds will go straight to the Save The Children charity.

We welcome further toy donations tomorrow morning!

World Homeless Day

This week we are supporting World Homeless Day in partnership with Bournemouth YMCA. Our school council agreed to support the event and decided to hold a mufti day this Friday, 12th October, in return for a £1 donation. There will also be a cake sale with cakes selling for 50p. All donations will be passed onto the YMCA who had great success last year in supporting homeless people within our area.

Town Hall

The School Council conducted themselves in a very professional manner whilst visiting Town Hall and the Mayor. The children asked interesting questions and showed a great deal of interest in the role of the Mayor.
