School Council & Pupil Voice
St Chrysostom’s has a School Council, which consists of two pupils from each cohort, from Year groups 2 to 5 and three pupils from Year 6. Pupils in each class had an opportunity to share their interest and explain why they would make a good representative for their class. The children thought long and hard about whom they want and carried a democratic vote to elect them.
This year the School Council will be lead by Miss Weddle and Mr Fitzpatrick.
Imperial War Museum trip
The School Councillors from Year 4, 5 and 6 visited the Imperial War Museum North on Friday 9th November. We went to view 'The Wave' poppy display which was installed to commemorate the centenary of the end of WWI.
"The trip was fascinating and a wonderful opportunity."
Our Reading Shed
Have you seen our new reading shed?
The School Councillors decided that we would like to create a cosy outdoor space where we can read. We pitched our idea to Mr Elswood, who generously allowed us to have one. Our new reading shed has been built and is ready to use!
Learning how to create a campaign
Our Year 5 and 6 school councillors attended an event organised by 'Healthy Schools Manchester'. We learned how to create a campaign to promote healthy lifestyles in school and had the opportunity to share our ideas with children from other schools.
We can't wait to show you everything we learned!
Healthy Lunch Box Recipe Competition
This year, the School Council ran a competition to create a recipe book for healthy lunchboxes. Thank you to everyone who entered the competition - we really enjoyed looking through all the recipes and we found it really difficult to decide on the winners. After long discussions, we have finally chosen the winners!
