Welcome to the NEW Autumn Term Class Council Representatives
On Friday 7th October, the School Council organised our ‘Dress Loud Day’. We swopped our uniform for bright and loud outfits. Everyone was asked to bring in a £1 to support The Hamlet Centre in Norwich. It is a charity that improves the lives of children and adults with disabilities and complex health needs.
As you can see from the photos below we looked amazing and raised over £209.55.
For taking part and supporting this event, we got a special mention on Heart FM Breakfast Show.
On Thursday 22nd September a democratic election process to elect officers for the three key roles of Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer took place in school.
The process involved 15 year 6 pupils putting themselves forward as candidates for nomination by presenting in front of the whole school in the morning.
In the afternoon, a voting station was created in the dining room. Everyone completed their voting card and posting it in their classes’ ballot box.
Votes were counted during the afternoon and during Celebration assembly on Friday, the winners were announced.
WELL DONE all fifteen year 6 candidates who presented in front of the whole school.
Congratulations to the following who were elected for CJS School Council 2016/17 roles.
Chairperson – Grace S
Secretary – Gracie F
Treasurer – Alex W
On Friday 27th May, we had the opportunity to come to school with a crazy hat or hair. Lots of pupils and staff looked very different … there were lots of amazing creations! We raised over a £100 for our outdoor playground equipment fund. WELL DONE to all of you that took part.
As the sun has come out to play, we have been enjoying our new play equipment bought with money raised by the School Council.
Respecting One Another – A visit from Keith and Shayler
Linked to our Spring Term fund-raising charity event for the Guide Dogs Association, Keith brought his guide dog Shayler into assembly. Keith explained that around 180,000 people who are blind or partially sighted in the UK rarely or never leave their homes. Shayler’s arrival had been life-changing and enabled him to be more independent and also gave him the confidence to leave the house alone.
The School Council raised £151.51 from the Easter Cake sale to be sent to the Guide Dogs Association to help train a puppy.
Thank you for your support.
On Wednesday 27th January 2016, Claire from Norwich Foodbank came in to assembly to explain how the food is boxed up when it is taken back to the depot. We learnt the boxes can be for two people, labelled ‘couple’ or for 4 people, labelled ‘family’.
On Friday 29th January 2016, pupils brought many different food types in to school to create a food mountain in the hall.
A really big thank you to all the children and parents for your generous donations, they were gratefully received and have been collected by the Norwich Foodbank team to help people in our local community.
Ms Smith and the School Council
CJS raised an amazing £122.00 for the Nook appeal charity. We accomplished this by wearing Christmas jumper, hats and head accessories and bringing in £1.00. We are sure the Nook will succeed in raising £10 million.
On Friday 13th November Colman Junior School raised £228.00 for Children in Need appeal by dressing up as a film or book character. Everybody enjoyed the experience whilst also contributing money for a great cause. There were lots of different characters, and it was especially funny seeing teachers all dressed up. Every costume was creative in its own way and we are really proud of the money we have raised. Thank you everyone for all your help and support.
