This has been a very busy year for the newly formed Youth Leadership Team. At the beginning of the year we formed 3 committees;
This enabled us to focus on and develop our knowledge of different areas of school life. Each team was led by the Year 6 representative and this committee structure is something we want to develop further next year.
There were many highlights this year. We spent the £500 given to us by the Governors on a sand kitchen for Key Stage 1 and more playtime equipment for Key Stage 2.
“Love in a Box” – we supported this Stevenage Youth Parliament initiative to collect food for the Stevenage Foodbank.
Banneux Fundraising – we held a non-uniform day to raise £300 to send a person on pilgrimage to Banneux in Belgium. We were delighted with the response to this appeal by a small local charity.
Stevenage Youth Parliament – The Year 6 representatives had the opportunity to go to meetings at the Stevenage Council Offices to meet with the Mayor, Councillors and members of other Stevenage schools.
To everyone for helping us with our work this year.
To parents for donations to “Love in a Box”
To Governors who attended our meetings and gave us a budget to spend.
To Mr White for giving us the opportunity to have a real say in decisions that affect us in school.
To our classmates for responding to our appeals and giving us suggestions about how to make our school an even better place. We open the Suggestion Box before every meeting and all your suggestions are carefully discussed.
In September we will hold new elections, if you would like to be involved please stand, it is a really important role in our school.
We would like to raise money for Banneux again.
If the Governors give us another budget we would like to spend it on an activity day for us all to enjoy as this is a suggestion that keeps coming up in the Suggestion Box.
We would like to Blog about our meetings more regularly to keep everyone informed about what we have been talking about.
We would like to work more closely with the PSFA to help their fundraising for the school and their recycling projects.

…has been our Getting Ready Week, when we have thought about how we could welcome those children starting in September.
We have been washing all the learning resources and fixing any that may have broken, so that they are clean and ready for the next Nursery class. We have also chosen books for the library that we think the children may enjoy and have voted for our favourite maths and science activities, so that they can be available for the first week in September.
Finally, we have designed and written Welcome cards to give to each of the new children on his or her first day.
Thank you Nursery; what kind and thoughtful children you are!
These will look great on the wall Year Three! They are beautiful!
