The Queen's Jubilee 

The school councillors worked extremely hard to design and decorate a crown to celebrate the Queens Platinum Jubilee for Holy Trinity Church. Each member was responsible for different parts of the design and they took great care in drawing this out and then painting it. Some of the school councillors then took part in the church service to present their crown to the Mayor.

Fundraising for Charity

The school council have had some brilliant ideas for fundraising this year. They have organised: Pyjama Day for Children in Need, Funky Hair Day for Comic Relief and Teachers as School Children to help fundraise for Warwick Hospital's Children unit. See some pictures of the fundraising days below:
