Snape village have just secured some new signage as part of the Suffolk County council QUIET LANES project. Some of us walked down to talk to reporters, including Anglia News and BBC Suffolk radio to talk about our views on why it's important to have quiet lanes in our village. The children chosen actually live in Snape so they were able to talk about using the lanes to ride horses and bikes, walk and take their little sisters and brothers safely around. Here are some pics before you get to see the children on TV!
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!
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. After the success of last year's bulb planting with drivers stopping cars to take pictures of the lovely spring bulbs here we are again planting up other spaces this winter for even MORE COLOUR in 2019 thanks to Green Snape.
