At Kempston Rural children are actively encouraged to be involved within the community of the school. The school has set up and manages successfully a School Council, Eco Committee and School Buddies.
School Council members are elected by their class, they encourage their class to suggest ideas on how to improve and make a difference to the school. They also give ideas on fundraising not only for the school but the school we sponsor in Swaziland. We were runners up in ‘The School Council Speakers Award’.
Year 1: Oscar and Eleanor
Year 3: Callum and Bunmi
Eco Committee members are elected by their class, they encourage their class to be ‘eco friendly’ this is achieved by recycling waste in the correct rubbish bins, turning lights off in the classrooms to save energy and keeping the school and surrounding areas litter free.
We now hold the ‘Total Green School Awards’, Totally Clued Up, Totally Active and Totally creative.
Year 1: Latoya and Oliver
Year 3: Julia and Luca
School Buddies are chosen by their teachers, they help children form friendships within the school. They work as a team to improve playtime, whether by listening or talking to the children, finding them someone to play with at playtimes.
