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.
