School Council 2023-24
This year Mrs Higgins will be supporting School Councillors to think about how they can make our school, local area and world a better place. If you have any ideas and suggestions please pass them on to your nominated school councillor.
Engaging children in charitable activities is becoming more and more important. The ‘Growing up Giving’ Parliamentary Inquiry suggests that “Teaching our young people to be selfless, to think of others ahead of themselves, and to support good causes – great and small – is as important as teaching them to read and write. It is an essential part of making sure our young people grow up to be full members of society.” Dr John Low Chief Executive Charities Aid Foundation
This year our School Council will be supporting a range of local and national charities and will be hoping to beat their targets from last year. They have already met Ribble Valley Mayor Mark Hindle to find out what the role of local councils and how they as School Councillors can make a difference to the lives of people who live in the Ribble Valley.
