Welcome to our student council page. Here we inform you of our latest meetings, decisions and ideas. If you have any ideas or suggestions we'd love to hear them!
You can tell our members or write your ideas in the suggestion notebooks in your class. We have recently put up our notice board, in school, to inform you of what is going on.
Here is our Notice board:
We put up News Flashes so you know of what changes are going to happen.
Here is our News Flash from the 24th of January 2020.
This News Flash includes toilet passes, lining up rewards, special events that are going to happen soon and a very exciting surprise coming up!
Self Help Africa
In our latest meeting Ronan Scully came to talk to the student council about Self Help Africa and what they have done over the past year. They have installed many water pumps, toilets and set up schools. We have helped them achieve this by bringing in money each day last year and supporting their cause. We are hoping to do the same this year.
The goal for this year is to raise money towards planting trees in both Africa and Offaly. Giving one euro would mean one tree gets planted in Africa. Giving five euros would mean four trees get planted in Africa and one in Offaly. We have decided to knit another teddy bear this year as we have done in the past few years.
As a fundraiser to help this cause we have decided to have a free dress day where we bring in two euros to support Self Help Africa and wear clothes according to the colours of an African countries flag. This will be happening on Wednesday the 1st of April, if the date happens to change we will let you know.
24/2/2020 In our latest meeting on Monday, our second and last surprise has arrived. It is a red pencil bin for our yard. It is a paper only bin- think before you throw! No food is allowed in this bin.
13/2/2020 In our last meeting on Monday, we decided to set up a new reward system for our lining up. The class who lines up the quickest and quietest will earn a marble for their jar. One of the two surprises have arrived and you can see them in first aid. They are bean bags!
10/2/2020 In our latest meetings we have agreed to make the lining-up reward for ONE class only, and the reward is 10 minutes extra play on Friday. What you have to do to earn the reward is your class has to be the first and best class at lining up in under 40 seconds!
Our toilet passes are working great, so remember that you must ask the teacher on yard for a toilet pass and hand it to the girls on first-aid. When you come back, take your pass and hand it back to the teacher.
More Updates Coming Soon!
