School Council Visit to the Town Hall

 
Our School Council visited the Mayor of Barnsley, Councillor Linda Burgess, at our Town Hall. We were greeted by Madam Mayor our friend, Councillor Wraith. We spent time in the Council Chambers,  took a tour to the top floor of the Town Hall, where Madam Mayor has had beautiful celebration banners displayed. These represent some of Barnsley’s special  people  (past and present).
Councillor Wraith pointed out at least three of the ‘stars’ were from Cudworth!
 
We also spent time in the Mayor’s parlour, one of us tried on her precious robes and we enjoyed looking at the priceless items of interest within this very special office!
 
Our morning was completed, with a trip to Experience Barnsley’s Dickie Bird exhibition. Councillor Wraith was our tour guide.

Car Safety Assembly

Well done to our fabulous School Council. They hosted an Assembly that explained just how important it is to be sensible as car passengers and also shared how all car passengers should (and shouldn’t) behave. Our School Councillors told everyone how to keep passengers safe in the car as part of their role as Junior Road Safety Officers. Their messages included: 

  1. Don’t distract the driver by showing them something or arguing.
  2. Do not put your head out of the car or throw anything out of the window. 
  3. Never open the car door when the car is moving.
  4. Always put your seat-belts on in a car.

A great start to the new Half Term, well done everybody.

Thank You – #IncredibleCommunity

We had the honour of arranging a Presentation Assembly for our cheque to Breast Cancer Now for £1,920.71! What an effort! Of course, we were joined by some very special visitors who have benefitted from the wonderful work the charity oversees. Many thanks to Hazel for receiving our cheque and especially to Mandy who presented the sum on behalf of our #IncredibleCommunity – a very special day at Birkwood! Thank you also to our School Council  – almost two thousand reasons to be extra proud of their work!

Parliament 2015

Our School Council visit to the Houses of Parliament was wonderful ~ we set off at 7am, had lunch at London Gateway (at 11am!), headed straight to the Houses of Parliament for a tour of the House of Commons and the House of Lords; did a workshop about women getting the vote, then went on the London Eye.  We stopped off at Burger King, Leicester Forest Services for our tea which was another highlight! We had a wonderful day and the children were perfectly behaved, well done to everyone and thank you to Father David and Paul Sabin who came with us and were a tremendous help.
