School Council - Spring Roundup

The School council have been blown away with how many children are coming to the snack table each week and trying new fruits. So far we have had... Kiwi, Pineapple, Mango, Cherries, Pears, Peaches, Pomegranate, Guava, Papaya, Summer Berries, Blueberries, Melon and there are more to come. 


The Council have been thinking about how we can encourage eating more healthily at home and so have been advocating for not only fresh fruit, but tinned and frozen which have a longer shelf life and can be more cost effective if you are only eating smaller portions at a time. 


To ensure we aren't wasting anything the Council have written to Mr Farrell to persuade him to get a compost bin for us to put the rinds, peel and waste fruit to good use in other areas of the school. Their flattery and persuasion worked and this will be purchased soon to be used in the summer term. 


There are more lovely treats in store for Summer Term, including looking at drying our own fruit and how we could create smoothies for everyone.  

School Council - Plans for the Year

This year the School Council has been focussing on a healthy eating initiative. They have come up with a Snack Table that runs each Thursday at break time and provides the children with new fruits to try. As part of the reward system for trying new fruit each child is awarded a House Point. These will be added up at the end of each half term and a prize awarded to the House with the most points. So far each week has been very successful with almost every child trying a piece of fruit.
