School Council visit City Hall

January 10th, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

The School Council visited City Hall today – we had a fantastic morning finding out about the role of the Mayor and the GLA as well as having a tour of City Hall.

On Tuesday 10th January the School Councillors went on a trip to City Hall.  When we got there we had to go through security, we went downstairs and there was a massive map of London – it took us a while but we found our school on it, it was really small!

We were then greeted by Richard and taken in to a room and were told a bit about the Mayor and his role.  The Mayor was in an important meeting at the time with the London Assembly, we were allowed in and he said hello to us.  We stayed in the meeting for a little bit and then we went up on the top floor the London Living room used in the latest James Bond film and then went out onto the balcony – you could see all of London!

Next we watched a video all about the history of London from when the Romans built Londinium right up to the present day. It was a great day thanks to Richard and Fran for showing us around and answering all our questions – we are now all looking forward to the World Para Athletics championship and inviting our Assembly member in to talk to the School Council.

Josh and Talia (on behalf of the School Council)

You can also watch us being introduced during an assembly meeting, if you follow the link: https://www.london.gov.uk/budget-and-performance-committee-2017-01-10  we appear at 1 hour and 8 minutes.

Christmas Parties Classes will be having their Christmas parties on the afternoon of Friday 16th December. We request a £1 donation towards party food and drinks that the school will then provide for the children. Children remain in school uniform / Christmas jumpers for their parties. This is not a ‘toy day’ so children should not bring in anything from home.

Christmas Jumper Day Friday 16th December is our Christmas Jumper day (joint with Oakdale Infant School). This is a non-uniform event so children can wear their Christmas jumpers with their ordinary clothes or school uniform if they prefer. There will be collection buckets on the school gates before and after school for us to raise money for Save the Children.
