This week’s message (Friday 20 October 2023)

Friday 20 October 2023

Yesterday was an important day at Scholes (Elmet) Primary: the day of the Junior Leadership Team (JLT) elections. The polling station was set up with voting papers ready for all children to vote for their new Junior Leaders…

All week, the children have been listening to speeches from their friends who wanted to be on the JLT. There were some fantastic efforts from children in all classes with some really important messages. Today was the day that children had to make the hard decision of who to vote for.

It was a close contest in many classes. The new JLT are:

  • 1A: Mia
  • 1,2B: Olivia
  • 2C: Jenson
  • 3,4A: Thea
  • 3,4B: Caleb
  • 3,4C: Lani
  • 5,6A: Emilia
  • 5,6B: Noah
  • 5,6C: Eric

Congratulations to these children and to everybody who had a go.

This year’s JLT has a hard act to follow. The previous JLT did all sorts to help the school and to make sure that the children of Scholes (Elmet) Primary have a voice.

Here are some of the things they did:

  • reviewed the anti-bullying policy – what does bullying look like and where to get help
  • selected the school charity and organised fundraising events
  • collected money in the playground for Children in Need ( £371.29) and for Red Nose Day ( £337.97)
  • interviewed and appointed lunchtime monitors

    We’re looking forward to the year ahead working with our new Junior Leadership Team.

And one last message this week… Need any ideas for half-term?

Carnegie Great Outdoors have an activity camp happening this coming October half term at Leeds Beckett University. There are options to sign up for three days or just a single day.

Have a great weekend.
