We are The Gates School Council
What a busy autumn term we have had in School Council. We started the year off by planning our aims and objectives for School council and created a short video for our school to show them that “Together we can make a difference”.
We have planned and organised Charity events within school; Toast for Tamba has raised vital funds that can be sent to our sponsored child, Tamba, to help him and his local village in Kono, Sierra Leone. With our classes, we led a vote to see what charity we could support in our giving back for Christmas fundraising.
We sold have also poppies in support of The Royal British Legion and finally this term we organised a Children in Need day where children came dressed in pyjamas.
We can’t wait to start a new year and listen to The Gates voices to see what more impact we can have.
“Together we can make a difference!”
For Tamba's Birthday we made him a birthday card that we will send to his village. Happy Birthday Tamba!
We have had another busy term planning and organising. This term we wanted to raise money for Red Nose Day to help support people in the UK and across the world, particularly those families in Ukraine. As a team, we decided how we could raise money linked to the theme of superheroes.
We planned a design a cape competition, which we judged and awarded prizes. We created our own posters to display in school. To raise awareness of Red Nose Day and all the great work Comic Relief does, we researched how their money helps people. With this information, we created our own assembly which we delivered to the school. We were very nervous but it went well, and we can’t wait to do another.
For Comic Relief we raised £333, which will make a big difference to lots of people.
We can’t wait for Summer term and have already started planning.
