Mission Statement

‘Together we will do our best for Jesus’

Here at St Joseph’s School council we are here to help everyone. We believe that many voices should be heard and we want pupils to feel they can get involved in issues that concern them. Our School Council are here to listen to the views of all pupils and teachers and it will enable us to help make decisions about aspects of school life. There are two members of School Council from Years 2 upwards and we aim to report regularly to our classes regarding the work of the School Council. As well as being involved in different aspects of the school, we will be thinking of ideas on how to raise money for lots of different charities and we will be contributing to the school fairs. But most importantly…
We want to make our school the best place for everyone and for everyone to be happy!

This years theme for red nose day was 'Comic Book Relief.' Everyone had to either come in as a superhero or dress in something red. In the playground we saw lots of different superheroes we saw bat-girls and batmen as well as Super Girl and Captain America. To wear their costumes or something red everyone had to bring in £1.
We also sold badges to raise even more money. We spent weeks making a considerable amount of badges with a variety of unique designs. The designs included Harry Potter, dogs, pirates and even Pacman! We sold them for 30p and the total from the badges was nearly £40!
Our overall total for Comic Relief including the money from the badges and the money the children brought into school to wear their costumes or red was £344.03.
We are really excited for next term because we have St Joseph's Catholic Primary School's 80th birthday and we are hoping to start some fundraising for Woofability. So watch this space!

Last term we were asked to make posters for an event to 'Keep Bourne Tidy'. Our job was to make an eye catching poster to tell people not to drop their litter and to inform them of a community event coming up to help clean up Bourne Valley Nature Reserve. The event invites members of our community to come together to pick up litter and make it look a bit more tidy. Look out for our poster (designed by Charley) around the area.

The school council had fun raising lots of money for Children in need. We organised pyjama day, a cake sale and a raffle to win an amazing pudsey cake. Thank you for all your kind donations and for supporting us with this amazing charity!

We really enjoyed running our cup stacking stall at the Christmas Fayre. We have worked out the winners with the quickest time.
