School Council

 At Parwich we have an active School Council.

They meet on a regular basis to discuss improvements that children can make to the school, plan ways of raising funds, discuss how as a school we can be outstanding, canvass ideas from staff and pupils and act on these.

A fantastic £50.00 was raised on Monday, as School Council and staff braved wet sponges to raise money for school funds.

Rainbow Friendship Bench – July 2018

School Council have purchased a friendship bench with money raised this year. Parents, staff and children watched, as Mr John Salloway (School Governor) declared the bench open on Tuesday 10 July. The purpose of the friendship bench is to create an area where children can go if they are feeling lonely, need someone to talk to, or to play with. One responsibility of the School Council will be to support anyone who sits there.
