School Council

Hello and welcome to our School Council page! The School Council is made up of two pupils from each class from Year 2 to Year 6. This panel of children has been chosen by the classes themselves in line with our democratic ethos. We hope you enjoy reading about all the wonderful things we have been doing.

Christmas Fair

The School Council and Eco Committee joined forces to make reindeer food for our Christmas fair.  Our aim was to produce environmentally friendly products. We decorated brown paper to make the containers and filled them with oats and bran for the reindeer. It was lots of fun and we sold all of our reindeer packages.  Well done everyone!

 

City Youth Council Meeting

On Thursday 12th December four members of our School Council attended the second City Youth Council meeting of the year. The children enjoyed visiting Plymouth Council Chambers and listened to a range of inspirational speakers. 

There was an update by Members of Youth Parliament on knife crime and climate change. Five members of Youth Parliament introduced themselves and answered the questions. Adbur-R. asked : "What types of job do you have?" and " Would you recommend to be in the Youth Parliament to young people?"

Claire Turbutt-Advanced Public Health Practitioner,talked about the Green Minds project and asked the children us to share ideas from our school council meetings. We discussed how we use green spaces, if we ever feel unsafe and what we would like to see more of in our parks and our nature reserves.  She also talked about good mental health and what it means. 

It was a very productive day!  We are looking forward to our next project working on the Mayflower 400 compact at school.

 

Hustings at Lipson Co-operative Academy

Very soon in the United Kingdom, we will be having a general election. Before this happens, adults need to decide which party will get their vote.This week, two children from Laira Green went to Lipson Co-operative Academy for “the hustings”. At these events, candidates from each political party meet together and answer questions from the public about their party’s policies and ideas for our country if they are elected. It happens so that anyone over the age of 18 has help making a clear decision about which party they want to vote for.

Libby and James went to the Hustings to represent our School Council. There were many questions asked by Lipson students but towards the end, we were asked to put our question to the panel.  Libby and James asked, “What will the Green Party do to improve parks for children and make them safer places for us in Plymouth?”

After the questions were finished, we got to have a photograph with the representatives from the Liberal Democrats, the Green Party and the Brexit Party.

Children in Need 2019  

Monday 11th-15th November

This week the children have been busy raising money for Children in Need.  The School Council Representatives have been selling Pudsey merchandise during their play times and have done a super job! In addition, we have had the whole school colouring competition. Laira Green School Council members helped to judge the entries.  Congratulations to Dougie-Ray in Ladybirds, Kacey in Butterflies and Jake B in Birch for winning.  We had so many impressive entries. Well done to everyone who took part.

We also had fun all week taking part in 5 minute workouts with Joe Wicks, the Children in Need School's Ambassador.  Then on Friday morning we took part in 'The Big Move Live' with hundreds of other schools across the country.  

   

 

Efford Remembrance Service

On Thursday 7th November our Key Stage Two representatives were invited to take part in a special service of remembrance at Efford Cemetery.  Upon arrival, we met ex-servicemen who told us about their lives in the navy.  We also met local councillors and children from other schools. Our school read a poem we had written in our school council meetings entitled 'Poppy'.  We then laid the wreaths the children had made across the school.  

 

      

 

 

 

  

 

  

I liked seeing the soldiers  - Alfie

I liked that everyone came together and listened - Libbey

We liked reading the poem - Everyone!

Here is our poem.  'Poppy'  by Laira Green School Council

Poppy

Poppy, poppy - what do you say?

Poppy, poppy - what do you tell?

Of many soldiers who fought in battle and bravely fell.


Poppy, poppy - what do you see?

Memories of the land and sea.


Poppy, poppy - what should we learn?

That we should always try to do a good turn.


Poppy, poppy - what can you hear?

Children learning about courage and fear.


Poppy, poppy - how should we feel?

Respectul,reflective and hopeful to heal.

Let there be peace and love flow.

 

Well done Laira Green, we are very proud of you.

 

October 2019

On Wednesday 16th October our school council supported our school in the 'Plastic Free Schools Day'.  We decided to do a litter pick around the school to help clean up and see how much plastic and litter there was.  We had a really good time helping Mr Spencer and were very pleased to say there wasn't much litter at all!  Thank you Mr Spencer for taking the time to help us.

 

September 2019

Four of our school council representatives attended the first City Youth Council meeting at the council chambers on the 26th September.  The City Youth Council is an opportunity to engage with Active Citizenship learning. Plymouth City Youth Council provides an opportunity for elected members of school councils in Plymouth, and their associates, to come together and represent their electorate, discuss and contribute towards issues that affect them in their school, their local community and the country as a whole. Members decide who they would like to invite to meetings, the choice of issues and campaigns for discussion and debate are decided by the school councillors and associates.

The children heard from a number of inspirational speakers:

1. Tracey Naismith - Until recently, Tracey worked as a Specialist Problem Solver for Devon and Cornwall Police Force.  Tracey discussed what her job involved with some ideas about solving problems and managing stressful situations.  Tracey informed the Council about the SARA model – Scan, Analyse, Respond, Assess, and how this can be used to help manage problems and difficult situations in our roles as councillors and in our everyday lives.  Scanning involves looking at data, talking to people, and observing the community in order to identify potential problems. Analysis involves studying potential problems. Response involves searching for and implementing a solution. Assessment involves collecting data after the response to determine if the problem has been eliminated or at least reduced.  The Council and Tracey discussed some difference scenarios where the SARA model could be used.

 

2. Road Safety – Sgt. Olly Tayler

Sgt.Tayler is a Road Policing Lead Officer and talked about his role and experiences as a member of the road policing team, including the main road safety issues and concerns.  He has been a member of the police force for 27 years and is currently the lead investigator for serious and fatal crashes for the thirteen thousand miles of road across Devon & Cornwall.  Sgt.Tayler and Council members discussed road safety and how to keep themselves and others safe.

3. The Green Minds Project – Claire Turbutt

“What, in an ideal world, with a completely blank canvas, would you like to see more (or less) of in our parks and nature reserves?”

The GEMS Project is to encourage people in the City to make use of and take care of our green spaces across the City in the face of continues cuts to funding.  The aim is to create a new way of working; the Plymouth Way.

4. Our Agenda

Our represenatives worked together to create a one minute presentation for next year City Youth Council agenda.  Libbey, Kazie, Alfie and James put forward a case for supporting homeless people in the city. Introducing the 2020 Children & Young People’s Charter:

5. Mayflower 400 – Heather Ogburn

The year 2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the historic voyage of the Mayflower ship from the UK to the ‘New World’ of America.

The original Mayflower settlers constructed a set of rules to live by, a Compact that the United States of America widely believe to be the first document of Government for their nation.

By taking part in the Compact project, pupils will be able to reflect on what is important to them, as citizens of the 21st Century, and how they want to shape their lives; what is important to them and what they believe Plymouth should focus on across the next 5 years. The Compact will underpin the work of City Youth Parliament and City Youth Council, whose voices have an opportunity to impact upon policy and practice across the City.

6. The returning officer declared that the City Youth Council agenda for 2019 – 2020 is;

  1. Mental Health
  2. Homelessness
  3. Environmental Issues
  4. Bullying
  5. Road Safety
  6. Refugees & Asylum Seekers

Well done to the children who attended and for giving us clear feedback following the visit. We look forward to working on road safety for our next meeting and on the Mayflower project throughout the year.

 

Congratulations to all the children who have been voted in as School Council Representatives.  In our first meeting we voted on who we should have as the 'chair' of school council, the 'vice chair' and the secretary.  Well done to James (chair), Libbey (vice chair) and Karson (secretary) on your new roles. The children put together a little speech to explain why they would like to be considered for the roles.  James said, ' I want to make the world a better place.' 

Here is a list of our current school council members:

June 2019

School Council had a visit from three governors; Mrs Scott, Mrs Evans and Mr Roe.  They told us the role of being a governor and we talked about all the fun things we have been working on.  Mrs Scott brought her therapy dogs, Barley and Molly.

We asked our visitors lots of questions such as:

What is it like to be a governor?

Do you have another job?

Why have you chosen to be a governor?

What do you like about our school?

What are you working on at the moment?

Is being a governor important?

What are your favourite hobbies?

Do you have a pet?

Mrs Evans said she likes our school because everyone is hardworking and friendly.  She said, “Laira Green was the very first school I was involved with as a teacher, then I became a head teacher in a different school and used to help 21 headteachers before being a governor here.  She said “coming back to Laira was like coming home.”

Mrs Scott said, “ I have a lot of time to spare and I miss being in the classroom.”

The governors told us they are working on developing the Foundation area at the moment and work hard to make decisions with our school to support it.

We found out Mr Roe’s hobby is to play board games with his son.  Mrs Evans goes dancing every week and spends lots of time with her daughter and grandchildren.  Mrs Scott is part of a samba band!  She plays at charity events and fetes, she loves to go swimming, cycling and being with her grandchildren.

We loved meeting the governors and meeting Barley and Molly.  Thank you for visiting us!

The Lord Mayor’s Choosing Ceremony

On Friday 17th May, four of our school council representatives were invited to attend the Ceremony of Election of Lord Mayor, which was held in Plymouth Guildhall. This was a great opportunity for the children to experience the inauguration of the Lord Mayor, Councillor Richard Ball. The children listened to Devonport Royal Naval Volunteer Band as members of the council and guests arrived. Prayers followed, before nomination and election of the new Lord Mayor and appointment of he Deputy Lord Mayor. Drakes sword was presented to the the new Lord Mayor on behalf of the Royal Navy to symbolise the key links between the Royal Navy and the City of Plymouth. There were presentations of flowers and gifts and the new Lord Mayor, Councillor Richard Ball made a speech. 

 

Our school council representatives really enjoyed the morning and were complimented on their fantastic behaviour by a guest at the ceremony.  Quotes from Maisy and Viktoria: ‘ It was really fun because we got to see the new Lord Mayor and lots of different people from the council.’

Well done to you all!

**Interesting Fact! In 1580, after his successful voyage of circumnavigation, Drake's sword is said to have been used to knight Sir Francis, aboard the Golden Hinde at Deptford, London. In 1967, Queen Elizabeth II also used it to knight Sir Francis Chichester following his solo voyage around the world.

 

 

 

April 2019

 

On 4th April 2019, our School Council took part in the grand opening of St Mary’s Church gardens. This was a wonderful community event which brought together all the people who have transformed the church gardens in a celebration. 

Thank you to the Lord Mayor of Plymouth, Mike from the Youth Offending Team, Councillors Mrs Murphy and Mr Vincent, Father Sam and our wonderful children.

Here are the two poems the school council wrote and performed to celebrate the opening:

 

St Mary’s Church Gardens

 

A place to be quiet

A place to play

A place to read

A place to grow flowers

St Mary’s Church Gardens

 

A place to relax

A place to stay

A place to enjoy beauty

A place to pray

St Mary’s Church Gardens

 

A place to create

A place to be myself

A place to think

A place to help

St Mary’s Church Gardens

 

A place to make friends

A place to remember

A place to imagine

A place to feel better

All:  Our Gardens

 

 There is a little garden…

 

There is a little garden

Outside St Mary’s Church

Children of Laira Green say

‘Come on and join the search!’

 

There is a little garden

With a bench made of oak

Where the children can play, listen and learn

While the birds soak

 

There is a little garden

That fills us with a sense of pride

Where lovely things mix and match

And tiny ladybirds hide

 

We now have a little garden

Colours of green, yellow and red we can touch

We will take care of our little garden

Thank you, so very much.

 

We also presented a poster to Father Sam, which the children created together, to display at St Mary’s Church.

 

March 2019

 

Comic Relief March 15th

 

Comic Relief spends the money that is raised through Red Nose Day and Sport Relief on disadvantaged people living in the UK and around the world.  Over the last 30 years over £1 billion has been raised for the charity.  The Comic Relief charity is UK based and aims to free the world from poverty.

Our School Council supported comic relief by organising a biscuit sale and by selling red noses.  We would like to thank the children in Foundation, the children in Year 3/ 4 and the school council for helping to ice nearly 300 biscuits!  Amazingly, they all sold out and we made £199 for comic relief, thank you so much!

     

 

  

 

 

January 2019

On 24th January 2019 four of our school council representatives attended the City Youth Council meeting at Plymouth Council Chamber. Laira Green was one of eighteen schools that attended. 

There were four speakers during the day.    

Heather Ogburn  - PCC, and MKC Heroes Ambassadors

Jackie Young – Urban Agenda South West

Robyn – St Luke’s Hospice

Jenny Way  – Plymouth UKYP

This meeting is our school’s opportunity to engage with Active Citizenship learning. Plymouth City Youth Council provides an opportunity for elected members of school councils in Plymouth, and their associates, to come together and represent their electorate, discuss and contribute towards issues that affect them in their school, their local community and the country as a whole.

The City Youth Council is not a simulation; councillors have a strong voice that the decision makers in the city want to hear. Members decide who they would like to invite to meetings, the choice of issues and campaigns for discussion and debate are decided by the school councillors and associates.

Jackie Young talked about how schools can reduce single use plastic. She showed a lunch box containing 10 pieces of food packed or wrapped in plastic. She encouraged to avoid cling film , small food bags etc. She also talked about plastic free water front surface in Devon. She said that children's ideas to reward people for recycling were passed on to the council.

 

Plymouth City Youth Council and School Council’s priorities for the Compassionate Plymouth Charter – January 2019

 

Plymouth is one of the first city in the country to develop a Compassionate City Charter to ensure that people feel supported when they experience a bereavement and are affected by the loss of a family member, friend or someone they know.   At the last meeting, St. Lukes asked CYC members to talk to their constituents (other pupils in school) about how they would like to learn about bereavement, loss and care. Laira Green did this as a whole school and our school council reps presented our ideas.

 

Council voted for their top four priority recommendations, to influence the Plymouth Compassionate City Plan.   The results for the City Youth Council priority recommendations for the Plymouth Compassionate City Plan are:

 

 

Our first priority is:  a memorial garden

 

 

 

 

Our second priority is:  staff training

 

 

 

 

Our third priority is:  a safe space

 

 

 

 

Our fourth priority is: a memory box

 

 

Chair, Vice Chair and reserve list elections for 2019-20

 

All schools wishing to stand as candidates were invited to provide a short (one minute) presentation, saying why they think that other council members should vote for their school. Chair and Vice chairs were elected following a vote from council members.   Chloe wrote a manifesto and presented it to be the Chair. She had a minute to deliver her presentation. We are very proud of your presentation Chloe and well done to all our school council reps who took part in the day.

                                                      image.pngimage.png

 

What a busy week!  The School Council worked hard all week to sell Pudsey wrist bands, badges and key rings during their break and lunchtimes, before finishing on Friday with a successful cake sale. They worked hard to sell cakes, buns and biscuits and to make posters in the run up to the cake sale.  We had such a long queue and sold out after school!  Thank you so much for all of your kind donations and support.  As a result, we are proud to announce that we have raised an amazing £586.50 for all the good causes that Children in Need support.  Thank you!

Remembrance Service at Efford Crematorium

On Thursday 8th November, Key Stage Two members of our School Council represented Laira Green Primary School at the service of remembrance at Efford Crematorium.  This is an annual event and is always well attended by schools and members of the public, in addition to the local councillors. Upon arrival, the pupils had a chance to speak to ex-servicemen and enjoyed hearing about some of their experiences, before walking together to the War Memorial.   The pupils took part in a minutes silence and paid their respects by laying our wreaths in memory of those who have lost their lives.

 

The Kohima Epitah

"When you go home, tell them of us and say,

For your tomorrow, we gave our today."

 

For the Fallen

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old;

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At  the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.

Classroom 2 Moon Walk 4th October 2018

On Thursday 4th October, Key Stage 2 school council representatives took part in the 'Classroom to Moon Walk'. 

For walk to school month, Plymouth City Council are aiming collectively for 79,000 hours across the city.  This is the time it would take for one person to walk to the moon.  The Classroom to Moon Challenge is running from Monday 1st October to Friday 2nd November and is a competition as well as a unifying whole-city challenge.  We are hoping to win a visit from the mobile planetarium Space Odyssey and have already made a good start.  We are keeping a record of how many minutes each child has walked each week. 

The school council were lucky to represent Laira Green and take part in the inter-school walking relay.  'Astro Mo' the mascot walked with us to Lipson Cooperative School.  We took friendship flags to present to the next school during the walk.  "We thought it was really good, we enjoyed seeing different children from different primary schools and we gave our flag to Lipson Vale (Friendship flag)."  Well done everyone!

Summer Hols!

I would like to say a huge thank you to each and every one of the School Council reps for their hard work and dedication this year and for giving up their Monday lunchtimes every fortnight. You have been a delight to work with and I’ve been amazed by your ingenuity and the pride in which you have shown towards our school. I hope you all have a fab summer and good luck to our Year 6s moving on - don’t forget to join the School Council in your new schools! 

The School Council next year will have newly elected reps and will be led by Mrs Hughes. 

 

Plastic Pollution Conference at the National Marine Aquarium

Mrs Lonsdale took 4 of our Year 5/6 reps to the NMA on 13.7.18 to attend a conference on the growing issue of plastic pollution. This was a follow up to the last City Youth Council meeting, where the NMA were guest speakers. The purpose of the visit was to give children and young people a say on how Plymouth should reduce its use of single use plastic. The overall aim was to come up with ideas for the City Youth Council to reduce plastic in homes, schools and businesses. 

Councillor Darren Winter spoke first and said that we need to ‘get a positive message to the City of Plymouth’ about ways to reduce single use plastic.

He was then followed by Sally from CaterEd (the company who provides our school dinners) who were previously challenged by the CYC at their last meeting about how they, as a company, would reduce their own plastic pollution. In response to this, Sally made several important announcements which included the fact that they would be: taking away slushies at lunch in order to tackle the problem of plastic straws, using tetra packs instead of plastic milk bottles and using disposable cutlery (we already use metal cutlery) called ‘vegware’ made incredibly from.....vegetable peelings! They also said that their next step is to put proper recycling bins in schools. Watch this space! 

The third and final speaker was Nicola Murray from the NMA, who our children met at the last CYC meeting. She put the sheer enormity of the problem into perspective when she said that plastic has been around for about 100 years and every single piece ever made is still on our planet. An alarming 12 million tonnes goes into our oceans every year!

Each school council was tasked with pairing up with another school to come up with ideas for tackling the plastic issue. Ideas were then shared and the top 9 priorities were chosen by way of a vote. These were:

1. Raise awareness through education in schools/public.

2. Facilitate recycling in the City (more bins)

3. Finding alternative materials.

4. Campaigning.

5. Get schools more involved in recycling.

6. Bottle schemes e.g. money back.

7. Environmental action e.g. beach clean up.

8. Plastic wardens.

9. Encourage businesses/community services to do more. 

 

To conclude the morning, groups were then asked to come up with Snappy Slogans and Likeable Logos which have been left behind for consideration. This was a really important and valuable meeting for our School Council and it is good to know that the City of Plymouth is starting to play its part in salvaging our precious planet. 

 

In preparation for this meeting, our School Council devised a questionnaire to conduct some research. If you wish to complete the questionnaire yourself, please find it here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/9VWQT5H

 

City Youth Council

Mrs Price recently took 4 of our School Council reps to the last of the City Youth Council meetings this year. The main focus this time was supporting the aged and plastic pollution, with visitors from Dementia Friendly City and the National Marine Aquarium. Click here to read more! 

 

 

The Speaker's Award

This year, Mrs Kennedy would like our School Council to enter The Speaker's Award competition. This is a competition where School Councils across the country can shout about the improvements made to their school and local community as a direct result of their actions. Click here to go to the Speaker's Award homepage to find out more.

Winners of the Speaker's Award will receive a winner's certificate and web badge for the school website, as well as an invitation to the awards day in Parliament that will include a tour of the palace of Westminster, and an awards ceremony in the Speaker's Apartments, where they will be presented with a winner's trophy by the Speaker of the House of Commons. 

 

British Values

In keeping with our firm belief in the 5 British Values, we have tried to ensure that our endeavours towards this award are democratic and respectful to all. We started the process with inviting the whole school to approach the School Council with any ideas they had for a project e.g. improving links with community, greener spaces, recycling, road safety etc. The Council then collated all ideas and we voted on those most achievable and relevant to our school and local area. These were whittled down to:

1. Team Ant across the school

2. Improving sportsmanship

3. Road safety

4. Litter picking

And this is what each project's manifesto consisted of: click here.

The School Council then got together in the above 4 groups and produced a video for the rest of the school, explaining why they should vote for their project (click each project to be taken to their video). Each class conducted a vote and sent their results to Mrs Gallacher. 

Votes were collated on Friday 19th January and the project with the most votes is:

 

Improving Sportsmanship!!

 

The Council have already begun to put things into place in order to deliver what was promised and what the school voted for. We are very excited about what the future holds and look forward to improving sporting experiences for the pupils at Laira Green. 

 

City Youth Council

This year, Year 6 School Council reps at Laira Green have taken part in something called the City Youth Council. This entails attending 3 meetings a year with School Councils from all across Plymouth and from a variety of different settings, including Secondary schools. Not only do we get to meet in the official Council Chambers in the City Centre (and get a free lunch!) but it's also a great opportunity to liaise with other councils, share ideas and put our heads together on huge, city wide projects.

January minutes coming soon.

 

Other news/events

Children in Need

In November, the School Council organised fundraising for the very worthy Children in Need charity. After brainstorming ideas, children agreed on the following activities: selling official merchandise, a collection tin for the old 'round pound', spotty mufti and a Pudsey bear cookie sale. Posters went up in advance around the school and School Council reps gave up their own time to decorate and sell cookies and merchandise. The fundraising week was a resounding success and we raised a whopping £550! A big thank you to parents, children and staff for fully supporting this crucial and life-changing charity.
