It takes a village to raise a child.....
Here at Snape we would like to help each other become good citizens in our village, in our wider community and in our global community-we believe in the rights of the child. Children have a say in their own school and help develop our yearly plan with their own ideas. They play a large part in the village: planting bulbs with 'Green Snape', laying a wreath on Remembrance Sunday or finding out about local jobs, for example.
School Council started officially last term. Children meet and decide what they would like to change or enhance to make our school an even better place. Mrs. Gallagher attends the meetings so she can help and answer questions straight away.
School Council wishes for this year-Be more eco friendly, make the toilets brighter and fundraise for a charity each term. The School Council representatives also do the work of the ECO COUNCIL as we are such a small school-they have a dual role!
School Council: Yr 1 Councillor-Benny, Yr 2 Councillor-Kane, Yr 3 Councillor-Ollie T, Yr 4 Councillor-Luke, Yr 5 Councillor-Eden, Yr 6 Councillor-Milly B, Yr 6 Councillor-Amelia. Amelia and Milly are joint Chairs.
We have been founding out about different jobs in our area including the role of our local National Trust Shepherd-Andrew Capell. Here he is with his sheepdog, Kite. During the earlier part of Winter we planted lots of spring bulbs around the village with Green Snape Action group...we want to help make our village even more beautiful.
