School Council Meeting 6 

Date:

Monday 29th January 2024

Topic:

Charity work 

Outcomes:

We have discussed possibly charities to support in school and have decided after the success of Mini Vinnies selling poppies and the nature of the charity; we would like to support Marie Curie in selling daffodils for all in the school to wear.

School Council Meeting 5 

Date:

Tuesday 23rd January 2024

Topic:

Sports Equipment updated review

Outcomes:

Sports equipment requested has arrived. We have assessed the equipment and are happy for all equipment to be put into use by sports leaders. We have created a list of suggested games that pupils of OLOG Juniors can play with the equipment to remain safe and stay active. We have also considered that the sheltered areas could become 'calm corners' however, think this would be more appropriate as warmer weather approaches as the possibility of chalk and smaller games could be used. We have asked Mr McGrath to review this suggestion. 

School Council Meeting 4 

Date:

Wednesday 17th January 2024

Topic:

Sport playground equipment review

Outcomes:

We have discussed the sports equipment for PE and break/lunch time playtime outside. We feel that as a school we should provide more equipment to facilitate healthy and safe participation in sports and games outside. With statement from Mr McGrath, he agrees and has approved us funding to choose new sports equipment for break times. PE equipment is also being reviewed and will be updated. We have decided a list of equipment to send to Mr McGrath for approval.
