Emmaville Primary School

School Council

The school has an active school council, who are democratically elected by their own class-mates. Elections are held every year in the Autumn term, and the council meet regularly, representing the views, ideas and concerns of their fellow pupils. Over the years, the council has been responsible for some major school-wide initiatives, including introducing waterbottles for all children, setting up a paper recyling scheme, initiating the school's allotment beds, taking the children's ideas about what should be included in the recent school remodelling to the architects and project manager, before all the building work began and, of course, playing an integral part in planning and organising our amazing 'Emmaville's Got Talent' shows. Keep an eye on this page to see what the School Council get up to this academic year!
Afternoon Tea - Wednesday 20th June
The School Council organised a delightful afternoon tea for the Governors and many volunteers who visit Emmaville on a regular basis. The event was a small way of saying thank you for the time that people spend in school working with the children, supporting the teachers, organising assemblies, delivering prayer space sessions and making sure the school library is kept in good order. A big thank you also to Joanne Liddle, Carol Hunter, Donna Jude and Julie McKie for aiding with the preparations for the party.
We would also like to say a very big thank you to Mrs Shirazi of Aryana’s Attic for baking, then generously donating the delicious cakes for the Governors and Volunteers Afternoon Tea.
Happy Birthday Annie! - Friday 19th October
On Friday 19th October, some of the School Council visited Addison Court in order to wish one of the residents, Annie Murphy, a very happy 105th birthday! Annie used to be a teacher at Emmaville and was therefore delighted that the children joined in with her birthday celebrations. Annie is an inspirational woman, who enriched the children with the most important lessons she had picked up over her 105 years - be kind and help people. 
Happy birthday Annie, from all of us at Emmaville!
Macmillan Bake Sale - Friday 28th September
On Friday 28th September, the School Council had their first big responsibility of the academic year as they had planned a bake sale to raise money for Macmillan. 
After handing out posters appealing for cake donations, we were all overwhelmed with the generosity of the contributions which were brought into school. The School Council worked hard to set up the brand new dance studio with all of the cakes, cookies, cupcakes and a wide range of other delicious sweet treats! The sweet smell traveled around school, enticing children, parents, and teachers to come and sample some of the baked goods, and of course, donate to this very worthwhile charity. 
After the School Council counted up all of the money, they were thrilled to have raised £452.09. Thank you to everyone who contributed!
