School Council Promote Healthy Breaks
The pupils recognise the importance of healthy eating for their development and health so the School Council have been working very hard to promote healthy breaks on a Monday- Thursday with a Treat Day on Friday with their classes. To promote this further, The School Council have come up with a great competition for P4-P7 with the winners earning a great deal of points for their house.
Pupils have been asked to get creative to promote healthy foods. They can design a poster, decorate a paper plate, make a papier-mâche banana, make a 3D lunch box with healthy treats inside or they can decorate a piece of fruit or vegetable to become a character. Children were shown a range of ideas in assembly and class to help them plan for this.

School Council make improvements to lunchtime football
Our School Council were told by their classmates at the last meeting that pupils want to have bibs to use during large football and small football games. We have ordered some new brightly coloured bibs for us and the supervisors will choose teams to stop any arguments about who will be on each team. The School Council Representatives are sure that this will keep everyone happy. Keep giving us your suggestions - We Work For You!!
School Council Go Green
The School Council have been turning their attention to the environment and are trying to make our community a better place. After discussing the importance of recycling with their classes, they then carried out surveys to see which class were recycling properly.
Noel from Arc 21 brought his recycling education unit to school, teaching the pupils about making compost, reusing old plastics and the importance of using the correct bins.
The School Council Representatives met together with Senior Management as they were very keen to run a competition for the school. Each P4-P7 child designed their own poster outlining what can and can’t be recycled in school. Winning the competition meant that Maia Flanagan not only won a bumper stationary bundle but will also now have her poster displayed on all the recycling bins in school.
‘Our pupils take great pride in their school. We are fortune to have no problems with litter thanks to the on-going efforts of all our children to ensure their environment is kept clean and tidy.’ said Mr Stewart.
