We are thrilled to report that our Pupil Council members were successful in securing £1000 for the school.
Their bid to the ‘Loot for Lerwick’ was for:
‘We want to get our school pupils out into the community and experience the exciting things that Shetland has to offer. Many pupils in our school have not experienced many of the local sights and learning opportunities i.e. Sands of Sound Beach, Weather Station, Power Station, Rovahead, Organised Tours of Lerwick Bressay, Scatness Dig, Turriefield, Scalloway Castle/Museum, , Michaelswood etc. ‘
The Pupil Council members did a wonderful job of speaking to members of the pupil about their bid and the benefits it would bring to the school community.
Jess and Johnny (Pupil Council Vice Chair and Chair Person) were busy yesterday giving our benches a new lease of life with paint the Pupil Council bought from Frank Williamson. They particularly enjoyed wearing their overalls! 🙂
The school received a donation of 4 large tyres! The Pupil Council were asked if they could make use of them for the school. We decided to paint them and make them into planters for the school grounds.
Johnny and Jess (PC Chair and Vice Chair) wrote letters to local businesses asking for advice on which type of paint to use for the job.
Malakoff Ltd very kindly donated paint for the tyres and super advice on what to do with them. We are very grateful for their help as we are on a tight budget. We went along on Thursday to thank them and accept their kind donation.
Huge congratulations to the Pupil Council who have secured funding of £780 at the Lerwick Community Council’s Loot for Lerwick event this morning. They will use their funds to buy games and equipment for all the pupils to play with during wet playtimes. All the pupils who attended today did an excellent job of telling members of the pupils about their bid.
Big thanks to Mrs Johnston and Ms Henry for supporting the Pupil Council with their bid and for giving up their Saturday morning to attend the event.
Drop along between 10:00am and 1:00pm to Islesburgh Community centre and vote for Bell’s Brae Primary School Pupil Council.
We would love to be granted the Loot for Lerwick money because our wet, Winter playtimes are sometimes boring. We would love to have new board games and craft materials to make our playtimes more enjoyable.
