Grainthorpe School Council

Exciting news …..our class school councillors have been elected. All of the children wrote detailed, persuasive and entertaining speeches and those who wished to take offices canvased their class mates. After some great performances,which made it a very close-run thing, the children voted and democratically elected their representatives.

Playtime Improvements

This term the school council have wanted to produce a plan of action for improving playtimes and lunchtimes at the school. They have written a letter to Mrs Johnson asking for specific items to make their playtimes and lunchtimes more enjoyable. Also, they have sourced some of the items online and produced a costings and calculations sheet to go with the letter. There have been some wonderful suggestions and hopefully the school will be able to help make some of the changes that the children want! So watch this space!!!

Children in Need


Children in Need Day ( 17th November 2017) provided our councillors with their first official duties. The whole school dressed in non-uniform, with many following a multi-coloured spotty theme, and gave generously. A huge array of cakes , biscuits and sweet treats were priced and sold at break time by our hard- working councillors and enjoyed by everyone. Following the event, the councillors counted up all the loose change donated to cover a large Pudsey, the profit from the cake stall and donations for non-uniform then bagged it ready for banking. Super maths skills were demonstrated by all.

Congratulations everyone !  We raised an amazing total of £ 90.40.

Weekly Tasks


School Councillors obviously have an important role in developing our school and they have already begun work,under the guidance of Mr Dalziel. Each week they have a different task to complete to help with running of the council. Recent tasks have included designing lanyards for themselves to identify them as the children’s representatives as well as writing a passage about our wonderful school to go into the local newsletter.
