It has been an amazing year for school council, all the children have made a contribution whether it be enthusiasm, knowledge or leadership. Every visit we have been on they rose to the occasion and were a credit to the school. I couldn`t have been more proud of all of them .I hope that they take away all their new skills and use them, Even Evie- Blue who can now use a broom the right way round !!!

The cake sale was an enormous success the council worked exceptionally hard organising and running this event, with the help of Sam Cleare from Pompey in the Community, the sale raised £221.30p for a local animal charity.

It's been a pleasure being involved with the School Councillors this year. They have been a credit to the school on all the trips we have been on.

I wish them the best for the coming year and maybe see them on the team again next year.
