An important job for the councillors…


Yesterday, a school council representative from each year group was involved in a very important job. The 10 school councillors who were chosen had breakfast with and asked questions to the candidates who had applied to become a new Assistant Head at our school. There were 3 candidates in total, and the school councillors asked questions regarding their application for the job and what they could bring to Layton Primary School. The councillors learnt a lot about each candidate and really enjoyed the experience.   

Strider assembly


Last week our councillors explained the details of Strider’s “walk to school challenge” to the whole school in a special assembly.

They told us lots of good reasons to make a positive change and walk to (or from) school at least one day per week.

These included:

– It will help you get fit

– It’s fun

– It’s better for the environment as you will reduce your car exhaust emissions

Each councillor will monitor his/her class’s participation each week, ensuring those who complete the challenge will receive special Strider badges.

Don’t forget to enter the “WOW Badge design” competition to create new badges for future walkers.
