The School Council had a lot of fun running the ‘Splat the Rat’ game at the Summer Fair! Thank you to everyone who supported us this year.

School Council Easter Competition 2017

A big ” thank you” to all the children who took part in our Easter Card Competition. We had lots of beautiful cards brought into school. Poor Mrs Brown had a very difficult job choosing the winners. The cards were then donated to local care homes for others to enjoy. Well done everyone and thank you for your support. 

Healthy Schools Week

The School Council have really enjoyed helping to bring Healthy Schools Week to Swallowdale. To help promote healthy eating, they ran a very successful fruit and vegetable stall at break time. All of the children loved choosing and eating the delicious fruit that was on offer thanks to the generation donations from Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons.

A competition was also held to find the most misshapen and imperfect fruit or vegetable. There were many extremely weird and wonderful entries and the School Council had a difficult time trying to decide on year group winners. The lucky winners will receive an afternoon of designing and making their own smoothies after half term.

The School Council have been very busy and had lots of support from local supermarkets to raise money during our Healthy Schools’ Week! We sold yummy fruits and vegetables to the children and also came to school in beautful colours to represent vegetables or fruit! We looked like a huge fruit salad in the hall. We raised over £150! Thank you.

School Council would like to thank everyone that took part in raising money and are now deciding what to spend the money on.
