Pupil Groups – Citizenship
The Citizenship Group is involved with planning and running school fundraising events as well as looking at making the school a more attractive and welcoming place for all. All members of the citizenship group become Rotakids and help raise money and awareness for local, national and international charities.
This term we supported Poppy Scotland and pupils purchased poppies to wear on Remembrance Day. We managed to raise £27.50 for the Scottish Poppy Appeal. We also raised money for Northsound 1’s ‘Cash for Kids’ by having an enterprise project where we made gifts to sell to families and the local community. All profit from this project went to ‘Cash for Kids’, along with money raised from our Christmas Jumper Day. In total we raised over £150.00!
Our next project is to work on painting some murals on the walls outside the school. We are looking forward to planning what we are going to paint – our first area will be the wall outside the front door.
We held a Literacy Open Afternoon when it was World Book Day and we sold our own book ‘The Found Words of Craigievar’ in which we have all written and illustrated an acrostic poem. It has been very popular. We also held an ‘Extreme Reading Competition’ where pupils had to send in a photo of themselves reading in odd places – there were some great photos!
We are looking at ways to celebrate World Book Day and have come up with some great ideas. We will discuss these further at our next meeting and come up with a final plan for the day.
