Our School Council
Autumn Term 1
This half term our school council will be collecting food for our local food bank. The food will help families in our community. Food banks like ours help make sure those children and families can get emergency food assistance when they need it.
Please give what you can! One bag of food can provide as many as eleven meals. Every single donation helps, and together we hope our combined donations will make a real difference for those in need. The food bank is asking for nutritious food. Here are some suggestions:
- Breakfast cereals
- Pasta sauce
- Tinned beans
- Tinned meat
- Tinned fish
- Tinned vegetables
- Tinned tomatoes
- Tinned fruit
- Tea or coffee
- Long life milk
- Fruit juice
- Rice pudding
- Sponge puddings
- Snacks and chocolate
Donations can be placed in the trolley provided in the front entrance of the school.
The school council would like to thank you all for the kind donations for the foodbank. All the food donated went to our local foodbank. A simple box of food makes a big difference, with food banks helping prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health issues.
Thank you very much!
Autumn Term 2
Our school council would like to thank you all for the kind donations for the poppy appeal. There will be a further update about how much we have raised for this great cause.
Children in Need
This year the school council of Bridgewater Park will be having a cake sale to raise money for Children in Need. Our school is excited to be joining in with others around the UK to participate in fund raising for this good cause.
These fundraising events will help your children learn about the lives of disadvantaged children across the whole of the UK while developing skills like communication, teamwork and decision making.
On Friday 15th November there will be a non-uniform day; children can wear anything spotty, Pudsey bear colours or plain clothing. Children are to bring a donation of cakes into school please.
We will be hosting a Children in Need cake sale on Friday 15th November 2019 at 1.30pm for children to come along and buy a cake and take back to their classes to enjoy! Could you please also provide your child/children with some money to buy a cake?
You can help us make a memorable event that raises as much money as possible by supporting the fundraising activities in our school.
Let’s make a big difference to the lives of children in the UK.
Thankyou so much for your cake donations, we raised £170.23 for Children in Need!
Christmas Toy Appeal
This half term our school council will be collecting new toys for the Halton Christmas Toy Appeal. It is aimed at helping disadvantaged children aged between 0 and 18. Around 300 local children have benefited from the Halton Christmas Toy Appeal over the past four years since it was first launched.
Anyone who would like to help can drop toys off at school new and unopened to their child/children’s class teacher. This will continue up until the 12th December 2019.
Our school council will be collecting batteries to recycle. Did you know? 600 million household batteries are thrown away each year equating to 22,000 tonnes. Roughly ONLY 1/3 of the UK batteries are recycled with the rest ending up as general waste. When batteries are sent to landfill they can breakdown and leak. Batteries contain hazardous chemicals including acids and heavy metals such as lead and mercury. The benefits of recycling helps to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill each year and helps to reduce the possible risks to the environment and wildlife. Please can you help by sending in any used batteries you may have!
Thankyou for your continued support! :)
