We were treated to juice and cakes by Mr Davidson today, as a thank you for the work we have done for the school this year. We feel we have worked together so well as a team and of course raised over £1,300 for their Togher Trials earlier this summer.
Elections for our new School Council will take place in the Autumn term.

We were so excited to take part in the celebrations when the Premier League trophy visited school today. We showed a slideshow about our World Cup and talked about role models from the Premier League.
Tuesday 3 July 2018
We are very proud to let you know that the final amount raised for the Togher Trials is £1,349! We had a very exciting and fun week with everyone taking part all the different activities. There was something for everyone to enjoy but our World Cup event turned out to be a great competition and was as hard fought as the World Cup currently taking place in Russia!
We would like to say thank you again to everyone who either sponsored a child or made a donation; your generosity is really appreciated. Thank you also to Mr Togher for all of his help. Our final thanks go to everyone at Belmont who joined in so enthusiastically to make this such a fantastic event.

Our first meeting of the year and we were joined by Mr Davidson and Mrs Shales. We read through the School Council Vision and voted to keep it and we also read through our Charter.

Wow, we did it! Everyone had a great time taking part in our fantastic Obstacle Challenge. All of the councillors helped out at the event and we would like to say a big thank you to Mr Togher for all of his help. We are looking forward to finding out how much we have raised.
Thursday 25 May 2017
In assembly today we announced our big fundraising event for this year - the Great Obstacle Challenge which will be taking place on Friday 9 June. With the help of Mr Togher, we have designed a fantastic obstacle course which will involve the KS2 trim trail and the field. We would like everyone to be sponsored by their family and friends to go round the course as many times as they can. For children in Year 1 and the Reception Class it will be for 15 minutes; for the rest of the school it will be for 20 minutes.
Children can dress up as their favourite sportsperson on the day too, which will be great fun! If someone is unable to be sponsored they can still dress up in this way, but we would appreciate a small donation.
Everyone has taken a sponsor sheet home that should be returned to school on the day of the event.
The whole School Council has worked hard over the last few weeks organising everything - a group of us working with Mr Togher designing the course, Lucas and Charlie writing the letter for parents, Letitia and Jessica designing the certificate and and Kirrigan-John designing the poster. We hope everyone will support us in raising as much money as we can. Last year's sponsored skip raised nearly £900, we'd love to beat that amount this year!
Tuesday 25 April
Today at our meeting we discussed our fundraising event which will take place on Friday 9 June. We will all work together over the next couple of weeks to write a letter to parents and design posters and certificates. A group of us will be meeting with Mr Togher who has kindly agreed to help us organise the event. We can't wait to tell everyone what we have planned!

It will sent along with our donation of £41.98. Jessica raised a concern about the taps in the KS2 girl's toilets which are not working properly. She, along with Kirrigan-John and Charlie will speak with Mr Wilson to see what can be done.

At today's meeting we all signed our new School Council Charter, which will be displayed in the hall. We then talked about different ways we can raise money for our chosen charity this year.
