This council was elected at the start of the year and is made up of one councillor from each class from Y1 to Y6. The council works with Miss Reitinger and is focused on the themes of mental health and wellbeing. The council works on showing kindness to ourselves, to students in our school and also to the wider community.
During the Autumn term, past and present Kindness Councillors were busy painting friendship benches for our school. We have finished phase one (priming the benches) but due to the weather we will need to continue the project when the weather is nice again. The benches will be ready to use in the new year and we expect a really positive outcome from this.
We finished our Board of Positivity, which is in the hall for all students to see. Students often look at it when they are lining up for lunch. We have had positive feedback from it and we will continue to update the positive affirmations.
We have been in contact with a care home in the community, which we will visit next half term. We will begin writing stories and making cards for the residents there. We will also bring work from school that we very proud of to show the residents.
