At the beginning of the academic year, all pupils at Weston St Mary voted for children to become members of the School Parliament. The School Parliament is supported by Mrs Walker and meets regularly to discuss school issues, such as fundraising opportunities and suggestions for school improvements from other pupils. The Senior Leadership Team at Weston St Mary also consult School Parliament regarding changes at school. They are an important part of decision making at our school and act as role-models to other pupils.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
Thank you to all those who attended our Macmillan Coffee Morning, and to those who donated cakes. We received an overwhelming amount of cakes and were even able to hold an additional cake sale after school to raise additional funds. All in all, we have raised over £60 and are very grateful for people’s generosity.
As part of our Harvest celebrations, the School Parliament decided to ask for food donations which we could in turn donate to a local food bank. Thank you to all of those who kindly donated produce to this cause.
Christmas Jumper day
The children of Weston St Mary were very excited to participate in Christmas Jumper Day in order to raise money for Save the Children.
Meeting Whaplode C of E Primary School Parliament
The members of Weston St Mary School Parliament were delighted to welcome Whaplode’s School Parliament for a Social Action Conference. The children outlined what charities they wished to support during the next few months, including local, national and global projects.
They decided they would like to embark on a joint project, focusing on the local community. Both Parliaments will discuss possible ideas before reconvening next term to share their ideas and decide on a course of action.
