We have two more ideas. A Fundraising idea and A Competition.
Fundraising Time: The children have written to the parents requesting to donate an empty glass jar for the School Council to decorate, but also, to donate some things we can put inside to glass jar to sell to the children.
Competition Time: Plant a Plant from a seed and we will plant this in our Reflective Area. The best looking 3 plants will win a prize. The children have written letters to the supermarkets for some donations and these will be our prizes.
Our first fundraising idea was a great success selling second hand DVD's and unwanted Christmas decorations. We raised in total £69.50 which is a great start.
Say Hello to Captain Sedley , he is the School Council's new fundraising hero.
As you can see we are starting to give Captain Sedley some superpowers by colouring him in with our fundraising.
Our 2019 School Council are Y6 Jasmine (Chair), Y6 Hayden (Vice-Chair), Y5 Megan (Secretary), Y5 Fidel (Vice-Treasurer), Y4 Archie (Treasurer), Y4 Sadie, Y3 Oliver, Y3 Brooke, Y2 Jack, Y2 Isabella, Y1 Nye, Y1 Emmy .
Their first job will be to encourage parents and children to fill a shoe-box full of goodies for the 'Love In A Box' Mustard Seed Relief Mission. Collection of the shoeboxes is on 14th November 2019.
Mach 2020 - We have written to parents to grow a plant from a seed or a bulb. The 3 winners will receive a prize which has been donated by local supermarkets. The school council will then plant them in the reflective area for all the children to see how they grow. We are also asking parents to donate a jar full of goodies. The school council will decorate the jars and we will then have jar sale.
Voting for the new School Council took place on Monday 7th October 2019.
2018 School Council fundraising final total was AN AMAZING £2109.40. Thank you for all your hard work. This money will be used to pay for the wall art in the hall.
The cake baking afternoon was a lot of fun, we raised over £120 and all the children enjoyed eating them. This money was added to our Money Thermometers. The Welly Walk obstacle course was a great success and enjoyed by both staff and children. We raised an AMAZING £1,787.20. Thank you to all the parents who supported this event by sending in their sponsorship money.
The School Council received a Certificate of Appreciation from the Mustard Seed Relief Missions - 'Love In A Box' 2018

The School Council once again collected 'Love in a Box' shoe boxes for the Mustard Seed Appeal 2018. We collected 30 shoe boxes for under privileged children for Christmas. In 2017 we collected 52 boxes. Sedley’s School Council is made up of a boy and a girl from each year group (years 1-6) voted by the peers in their class. Our School Council Representatives are very enthusiastic and engaged to adopt the responsibility of their School Council role.
The School Council Representatives will meet once a month and are responsible for voicing the opinions and needs of the children within the school over this academic year, they will also help to decide how any funds raised will be spent and which exciting projects will be organised in the coming year.
In 2016 we sold second hand donated books after school and at the Sedley’s Mayfair and raised £156.25. With this money we bought paint brushes for all classrooms, pastel paints and an assortment of balls for lunchtime play.
