What have the school council achieved?

School Council 2019-2020


Although the year got cut short, the school council raised money for various charities throughout the year.  They took part in the Christmas Fayre, running their own book stall.

School Council 2018-19

The school council had a lot to discuss at their meeting in May.

The main topic of conversation was RRR (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle). The children were very passionate about this topic and they wanted to raise awareness with the rest of the school. They want the teachers to recognise the children who are actively trying to reduce, re-use and recycle waste by rewarding them with house points.

In the diary we have organised an assembly to raise awareness of this topic. 



This year, the School Council's chosen charity is 'Muscular Dystrophy Uk'.  This is a charity very close to our Hearts here at Glebelands Academy.  We took part in the Muscular Dystrophy UK's 'Go Orange' day on the 27th January.  The children were asked to come to school dressed in orange or bright colours for a £1 donation.  Thank you to all who took part. We were very colourful indeed! Well done for raising £334 for this worthwhile cause.
For the year 2015-2016, the School Council voted for their chosen to charity to be Cancer Research. To raise money for this charity, the children were invited to come into school dressed in bright colour for a donation of £1.  Well done to all - such a rainbow of bright colours.  
2014-2015 the children took part in a treasure hunt to raise money for Pets4Therapy. This event was fun and enjoyed by all. Thank you everybody for your contribution.  Pets4Therapy do a lot of work in school and provide a valuable service to our pupils. 

For the school year 2013-2014, we raised money to replenish the playtime equipment and also for our chosen charity Make a Wish Foundation.


The children came to school dressed as what they wish to be when they are older and were asked to donate £1 for this.   On the day, we had children dressed as: doctors, gymnasts, dancers, scientists, super heroes and many more wonderful outfits.  We raised £313.50!   Well done!

The school year 2012-2013 the school council's chosen charity was The British Heart Foundation.


A sponsored readathon was organised by council members which took place 22nd-26th April.  For this event, each child tried to read as many pages as possible to raise money for this worthwhile cause.  £250 was donated to The British Heart Foundation and the remainder was spent on class sets of books.  The class sets of books are a great way for the whole class to engage with a story.


The amount raised was £2102.98

With the money we raised for the Readathon, we have bought lots of books.  For years 4, 5 and 6, 60 of each book have been bought so that each child in the class can have their own copy to read.  In year 2, there are now 30 of each book so that the children can take part in paired reading and Year 1 recieved 6 sets of the Hairy Maclary collection to support group reading. Year 3 will be choosing their books shortly and will be added to the list when they arrive.
