Federation School Council – Christmas 2020

The Federation School Council were determined this year to spread a little bit of Christmas joy far and wide. We discussed how the Coronavirus pandemic has effected different members of our community and the impact it may also have on many people over the festive period. The School Council were particularly concerned for the more elderly members of our community that may not be able to see their loved ones this Christmas time. We also discussed how hard it has been for us as a Federation to not be able to mix together with our friends for a pantomime, Christmas dinner and parties etc. As part of our Christmas quest we decided upon two projects which would involve our school working together and also supporting our local community.

Family Christmas Quiz

Members of the School Council used their class feedback time during early December to collect Christmas based questions from their class mates to add to a Federation family Christmas quiz. A whole range of questions were collected to enable every member of the family to take part. The final quiz was emailed out to all families within the Federation.

A huge thank you goes out to all the children and their families who completed the quiz. We had 135 entries with so many families getting all the answers correct. Everyone who took part received a Dojo, and huge congratulations goes to the winning pupil and her family who were from one of our reception classes.They received a delicious prize to share over the Christmas holidays. Well done everyone!

Christmas Cards for Care Homes

To help spread some Christmas kindness this year within our local community each member of the School Council created a Christmas card with a special message written by our Federation School Council Secretary.

The Christmas cards were sent out to the residents of local care homes.

The Federation received some lovely messages of thanks in return including a hand written one with a very special message to the children.

“Dear Children,

Thank you VERY much for my Christmas card. I am nearly 90 years old and my children are all grown up now. My card had a branch on the front with nice green leaves and four snowflakes on the bottom. Have a lovely Christmas all of you and your teachers.”

Well done to all the Federation School Council members this term for their hard work and commitment.
