School Council

School Councillors

Many Congratulations to our school councillors; Wesley, Hannah, Thomas, Evie, Callie, Charlie and Jessica on being selected to represent the school.

Children's Choice Dinner Menu

We had a delicious start to the Children's Choice Menu today with chicken or vegetable kebabs and couscous with a yummy brownie for pudding. If you haven't already signed up for one of the days this week you still have time.

The School Council after discussions with the children came up with a week's lunch selections. Their choices went to catering at Derbyshire County Council and this special Denby Free menu was designed and will be available for week beginning 27th June 2022. If your child normally has sandwiches maybe we could tempt them for the week or even one of the days. If you can please just let the office know and we can arrange for them to have a lunch on their selected day/s. It would be great if we could get lots of children enjoying this special menu because if they enjoy it and we get lots of takers they will offer the same menu again. The menu is below and includes a joint of roast beef on the Wednesday which will be carved just like a Sunday lunch and freshly made fish goujons on Friday.

New Playground Equipment

Just look at the new equipment the School Council got to share with the children this week. We have new scooters, swingballs, new reading areas, Lego, Magnetix and car sets. This has all been thanks to all the money raised during our competitions and from kind donations from parents of no longer needed toys. The two new reading benches are thanks to the money raised from the recent sponsored reads. The children have all been loving the new equipment and seem to be enjoying playtimes even more. Many thanks to everyone.

Christmas Decoration Competition

Many thanks to everyone who made a decoration for our bus shelter tree. As you can see from the photos we had some wonderful entries and raised over £70 with thanks to yourselves and The Mortgage Bureau who doubled our total. The winners were Poppy and Mia, congratulations to them both.

Christmas Competition

Hello,

The School Council would like to invite everyone to make a Christmas decoration for our tree in the bus shelter. This is different to the Friends Christmas bauble competition (which we hope you will also enter, as these are for the school tree). We would like you to make a Christmas decoration from recycled materials such as bottle tops or slices of wood etc. Evie has made this wonderful poster to advertise the competition. It is £1 to enter (please see ParentPay - School Council Christmas Decoration Competition), there will be prizes and we are hoping the decorated tree and bus shelter will spread the Christmas message through the community.

Many thanks Mrs Foulke and the School Council
