Our School Councillors
Litter Pick - April 2023
School Council and our Eco Warriors took part in litter picking activities in our local community. This was as part of The Big Spring Clean and Keep Britain Tidy campaign. Good job everyone!
Pupil Parliament - November 2022
Our new school councillors joined other schools for Pupil Parliament held at Lancaster Town Hall. After a morning of discussions and banner-making the children went onto the steps of the Town Hall to wave their banners and sing a few songs to raise public awareness. The group received claps and honks from passing vehicles. Well done to all!
Pupil Parliament - Schools & Community Climate Charter
During March, our Year 6 school council spent the day at Lancaster University with the local Pupil Parliament learning about climate change and how we can alter climate change. The aim of the next 3 weeks was to work together with local schools, scientists, environmental groups/studies to produce a Schools and Community Charter which we can all support and use as our aims for the future. We then came together as larger groups to merge our ideas and formulate our Climate Charter. You can read details of who was involved and all the different activities here.
Pupil Parliament - COP26
Our school councillors attended the Pupil Parliament at Lancaster & Morecambe College. The agenda included COP26 investigating climate change. We spent time thinking what can we do for our planet now for the future.
Eden Project Morecambe - an initial meeting
One of our Year 6 Councillors represented our school at an initial meeting for primary schools who are interested in creating links with this new project as it develops. You can read a copy of the report Joel wrote here.
Investigating Plastics at Sainsburys
The newly elected school Council went on a fact finding mission to Lancaster Sainsbury's on Monday as a continuation of our work on plastic pollution. They had great fun looking at all areas of the store including deliveries, freezer, fridge, compactor, bakery, cafe and shop floor. They are currently drafting a letter to provide examples of how Sainsbury's could improve on plastic waste and usage.
Heysham Beach Clean
Continuing our work on plastic pollution, the School Council went to Ocean Edge at Heysham to take part in a litter picking session. All litter was collected and sorted into plastics and non-plastics.
After lunch was some relaxation on the playground, followed by a workshop run by the Heysham Nature Reserve. They had seen our school film on plastic pollution (see link below) and showed it to the whole group of schools that were there. We're famous!
Plastic Pollution Workshops
The School Council followed on their Pupil Parliament meeting by leading a school event.
School Council visit to Pupil Parliament at the Vale of Lune
Members of the School Council attended the latest Pupil Parliament meeting where they learnt all about plastic pollution and ways to improve the amount of plastic we waste. They took part in lots of activities and will be teaching other members of the school about what they learnt by carrying out workshops.
Inspector Ted Visits School
School Council invited Inspector Ted to come and visit Cathedral Catholic Primary School from Lancaster Police Station. On his first day he helped some children have their school photographs taken. He loved explaining to Reception and Year 1 all about a Police Officers role and enjoyed lots of cuddles during circle time. He visited the classrooms and reminded the children about being a good citizen. In year 4 he even took part in a music lesson!
