Shoebox Appeal 2017
On Tuesday 17th October the School Council launched the 'Samaritans Shoe Box Appeal'. They talked to the whole school in Assembly about the appeal and the children watched a video. It would be brilliant if we could collect as many shoeboxes as we possibly can this year, please drop them to the Year 2 Classroom (Miss Bishop, opposite the main entrance gate) by Monday 13th November.
-Wrap the shoebox separately (lid & box) in Christmas paper
-Attach a label and tick which gender and age group the box is for
-Read the leaflet carefully to check what is allowed to go in the box
Today (14.11.16) we worked with Mrs Page and Mrs Williams to contribute ideas to the school mission statement.
We listed things that come to mind when we think of St Joseph's then went onto think about what our teachers want us to achieve and experience at school. Finally we worked on a logo and statement for the school.
It was a wonderful afternoon of work.
This week (com 17.10.16) we met as a group to take our group photograph. We elected Toby as our School Council Secretary.
We spoke about setting a rota to check the suggestion box.

Watch this space to see what our council is working on this year!
We have been working on a book to use alongside the friend stop to try and encourage safe and appropriate play during lunch times.
We have carried out a questionnaire across the school to identify the issues arising at lunch times and the ideal activities that children would like to engage in during these times.
We are choosing new equipment to be used at lunchtimes.
We are also setting up our own School council display board in the library, we will use this board to keep the school updated with our activities.
We have also introduced a suggestion box where anyone in the school can share their ideas and suggestions with us.
We were responsible for approving the new hot dinners menu
