School Council 2015 - 2016
This half term classes have been busy electing new members to represent their class in our school council. 17 children have been elected and so far they have done a fantastic job of speaking out and sharing the views of their classmates. One project we have been working on is making sure our playgrounds provide stimulating activities for the children to enjoy. We now have a wide range of "big play" equipment and after listening to what else the children wanted we are now ordering a "quiet box" for each class. Inside each box there will be books for children to read, puzzles and colouring in for the children to do if they want a quieter time at break. Children have fed back to Mr. Antell with other ideas on how else our playgrounds can be made better.
We have also held our first meeting with other school council in the area as part of Southport Learning Partnership. We are soon to meet up again to decide on a project that the local schools can work on together. Let us know if you've any ideas you would like to be considered.

School Council Update April 2016
School council have been continuing their project in Bedford Park. Firstly they have visited the park to tidy the flower beds and litter pick around the play areas.
Today we have been back to the park to re-build a bug hotel. Last years school council had built one but sadly after a few weeks of it being put up it was vandalised and burnt down.
The children from our primary school and from other Birkdale primary schools worked really hard to make a new habitat for bugs and mini-beasts in the park. By the time we had finished the children had created not one but two bug hotels which hopefully should stay up a lot longer this time.
