Gad’s students are looking forward to supporting BBC Children in Need tomorrow with a pyjama day, organised by the School Council.
Kindergarten and Junior children will don their comfiest attire to help fundraise, after council members voted on a fun way to help others this term.
The Gad’s Hill School Council is made-up of representatives from each class in the Kindergarten and Junior School, who meet regularly to talk about things that matter to them and their classmates.
Year six teacher, Mrs Joanne Titler, said: “The children take their council responsibilities very seriously and enjoy discussing ideas about how to provide activities and resources for the whole school to enjoy.”
Sisters Daisy and Poppy worked together to design a poster promoting tomorrow’s tag day and are looking forward to continuing the good work they and the other council members do for the Gad’s, and wider, community.
School Council members earn their place on the council by being voted for by peers and are responsible for gathering and presenting friends’ opinions and recommendations.
BBC Children in Need supports more than 3,000 local charities and projects in communities across the UK. The projects it funds help children facing a range of disadvantages for example poverty and deprivation; children who have been the victims of abuse or neglect or disabled young people. BBC Children in Need’s vision is that every child in the UK has a childhood which is safe, happy, secure and allows them the chance to reach their potential. It will be broadcast on Friday, November 15 from 7.30pm on BBC One. Programming will continue right through until 2am on Saturday morning on both BBC One and BBC Two, in the hope of raising the grandest total yet.
