Boxes of Hope

Last half term, the School Council decided to support the Boxes of Hope Charity who collect shoe boxes full of Christmas gifts and deliver them to children in Eastern Europe.

We were delighted by the support we received from the families at Ellel! Over 70 boxes were donated and will bring real happiness and joy to children less fortunate than ourselves this Christmas.

Thank you very much to all those who supported this really worthwhile cause.

Children in Need Sponsored Dance

On the afternoon of Wednesday 11th November we held a sponsored dance in the school hall. The aim was to have continual dancing all afternoon and for children to collect sponsor money for completing the challenge. We had a great time raising money for this wonderful cause! Have a look at our pictures below:

School Council Representatives

SCHOOL COUNCIL

We encourage our children to take an active part in our school. Two children from each class from Year 1 upwards meet with the Deputy Headteacher half-termly to discuss matters of importance in the school. The aim of the school council is to improve the quality of provision for all children. Over the last couple of years the school council requested new playtime equipment; they took ownership of the project costing and ordering play equipment. To complete this exciting venture they also led school worship, introducing the new items and rules for playtimes.
