What is the School Council?
Red Nose Day
Congratulations and thanks to all our children here at Birchington CE Primary School for their help and support on Red Nose Day. We raised a staggering £388.78 for the charity. Our School Council devised a range of activities to raise funds, including a Lucky Dip win a teddy draw in EYFS and Phase 1. The winners were Summer 1B and Sophia 2D. Years 4, 5 and 6 had the opportunity to Buy a Joke on the playground to raise funds for the cause, and Lesley used all your wonderful cake donations to run an end of day Cake Stall. Thank you to all involved.
Ms Bant’s Visit
On Tuesday 5th March, Ms Bant, Chair of Governors, visited the School Council meeting. We gave a presentation about The School Council, who we are, what we do, and how we help the school. Ms Bant then asked us questions about our role and what our views of the school are. Ms Bant was surprised to hear that we regularly sort lost property (much of which has no name on it). We look forward to her next visit – and seeing more names on jumpers!
The School Council
Damian Hinds. MP
On Thursday 7th March members of The School Council had the unique opportunity to meet The Secretary of State for Education in our school. We were allowed to ask him questions about his job in Parliament. He told us it was good to be a Member of Parliament and work in the House of Commons because he could always see the time on Big Ben next door! We also had the pleasure of meeting Roger Gale, MP for Thanet, who told us he has been an MP for 36 years. Gosh that is a long time!
