Meet the Team!
Learn about why we wanted to become pupil committee members!
"I wanted to make a difference and try to make sure that people came into school with a happy face every day."
"I wanted children in school to be kinder to each other. I wanted to be a role model for kindness."
"I wanted people to feel excited about coming to school and teach them that their voice matters no matter what."
"I wanted to make school even better and like seeing my friends at our meetings."
"I wanted to make sure the little ones in our school were enjoying their learning."
"I wanted to try something new and be kind to everyone in school. I also wanted to set up a buddy system."
"I wanted to join because I wanted to be able to improve the school."
"I wanted to do it because I wanted to teach everyone that their voice matters. I wanted to be the voice for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) because sometimes people do not recognise how to help children with SEN."
"I joined the pupil committee because I wanted to make sure that kindness was spread across the school. I wanted to tell everyone that their voice matters no matter who they are. "
"I wanted to improve the school in any possible way that I could and ensure everyone had a friend by setting up a buddy system."
I - "I wanted people to know that if they had an idea about how to make school better, they could post it in the pupil committee box and I would share it at meetings."
16.5.23 Spring has sprung in the Early Years garden!
It was a delight to see the tulips that we planted in the Autumn come to life in our Early Years garden! Ms Blair (our wonderful Nursery Nurse) shared that the Nursery children have been admiring the flowers during their outdoor time and the flowers have brightened up the space.
16.5.23 Urban Green local litter picking event!
A wonderful volunteer, Jo Ellis from the charity, Urban Green facilitated our litter picking event in our local Westerhope Park. The pupil committee had a wonderful time in the sunshine collecting seven bags of rubbish. Items included large cardboard boxes and giant plastic bottles.
Jo kindly said that we are "all part of the green team now".
11.5.23 Baking Enterprise Project
Our cake sale was a success!
After the cost of the ingredients and cake cases were deducted, we raised a total of....£33!
We look forward to sharing what we decide to spend the money on to better school.
25.4.23 Bake Sale Enterprise Project
In the coming weeks, the pupil committee will be busy practising making lots of cakes for our upcoming Year 1 and Year 2 bake sale!
We aim to raise lots of money to further improve our school and continue to work towards our vision!
8.4.23 Meet Westerhope's new Kindness Ambassadors!
As the pupil committee are already such wonderful role models at Westerhope Primary School, they have been selected to be kindness ambassadors too.
Mrs Hay (Teacher and Leader of all things Kindness here at Westerhope) nominated the pupil committee to help her with lots of kindness projects as we move through the year.
They have lots of exciting, kind adventures ahead!
Westerhope's Uniform Boutique
We quality checked the uniform donations and set up a second hand uniform stand outside of school for parents and carers.
Any money donated was raised for our school charity Heel & Toe.
We made birthday cards for a lady in our community who turned 100 years old.
31.1.23 Lost property and outdoor areas!
We had such a busy afternoon today sorting the lost property into different categories in preparation for the Westerhope Uniform Boutique. We even found unnamed uniform ready to be donated to our onsite clothing recycling bin.
We also tidied and reorganised our year one outdoor area. Some very helpful children restocked the mark making area with art tools and the reading area with lots of new books.
