CHILDREN IN NEED
We decided to hold a Pudsey Bear colouring competition which turned out to be extremely popular. We had over 50 entries! Judging was very difficult due to the high standards, but our team of judges eventually managed to arrive at our favourites for Years R,1 and 2, Years 3 and 4, and Years 5 and 6. Well done to our winners and a big Pudsey thank you to everyone who took part!
Thank you to all the St. Catherine’s Council Members who represented the views of their classmates last year. You all did a splendid job and should be very proud of yourselves.
Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
If you have any questions / ideas about School Council – please see your class rep, Mr Crump or Mr Kilbride.
The following children have been chosen by their classes to represent pupils’ views on this year’s School Council:
