Playground Equipment Council

Council members have reported back that there has been an improvement in how pupils are looking after the playground equipment and that some pupils were voluntarily tidying up the equipment boxes. Well done everyone!


Shoe Box Appeal

The pupil council would like to thank everyone who donated items for our Shoe Box appeal. We had a mammoth task filling up the boxes as so many items had come in. Council members had to ask for volunteer helpers so that we could have them filled up in time for collection. In total we filled 62 boxes and these were uplifted on Tuesday last week. The Rotary Club were absolutely delighted and thanked us for our great efforts. We certainly will make some people very happy this Christmas.


Tuck shop

Council members have consulted their classes regarding what they could sell at the Tuck Shop and reported back. There were a large amount of suggestions for different types of fruits and vegetables that we could sell. Also, Amber’s class suggested that we might offer fruit salad tubs.

Council members then discussed how the tuck shop would operate. They had two main ideas: use trolleys and go to each class or have a set place for the tuck shop and pupils come to them.

We also discussed who would operate the tuck shop and how often we would do it. We decided that it should be Primary 7’s along with a younger pupil council member and that we will offer the tuck shop once or twice a week.

At the next meeting we will design posters to advertise the tuck shop with an aim to get it started in January.

The next meeting will be on Friday 4th December at 9.30am.

Mrs Brechin thanked everyone for coming today.

The meeting ended at 11.30am.
