School Council

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our Mental Health Video

 

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week (14-20 May), which focused on stress.

The school council, plus head girl and boy helped create Halfway Houses own 'Mental Health' video.

Hopefully getting children and staff to think about their own mental health and what to do if you need help.

The children created all their own drawings and text then they were turned in to a movie, they also added their own voices and some background music.

Ground Breaking Ceremony

 

We were very lucky to be able to attend a Ground Breaking Ceremony at the new school site.

Mr Driver and Mrs Fordyce took the School Council members, head boy, head girl and poster design winners to see the new school building and to meet the designers.

It was freezing cold, but we really enjoyed looking around and getting a feel for the fantastic new school that we will be moving in to.

Below are some of the things that the previous school councils got up to!

 

The School Council (KS2) Trip to the Houses of Parliament

 

The KS2 members of the School Council visited the Houses of Parliament.

They also took in some of the sights of London.

Our picture was in the Times Guardian the following week!

Here we are inside the Palace of Westminster.

 

We attended a workshop about the Magna Carta.

We found out that the 15th June marks 800 years since the sealing of the Magna Carta.

We gained an understanding of the story behind it and why it is so significant to the development of rights and freedoms in the UK.

Halfway Houses School has visited the Houses of Parliament before.

We have found a photograph showing some of Halfway's school children with members of staff on the terrace overlooking the Thames taken in June 1953!
