Over the past week School Council have been busy discussing the possibility of organising a Festive Jumper Day to raise money for Save the Children and St Gemma’s Hospice. Also the Council have talked about how school can recruit children to become part of a recycling team following their workshop with Leeds Cit Council’s Waste and Recycling team on Team.
The takeover challenge has continued this week with Mrs Clark, Miss Murphy and Mr Kay taken over on Monday, Miss Whiteley on Tuesday and Mrs Stott, Mrs Willis, Mrs Cattrell, Mrs Johnston and Mrs Walker who were all taken over today (Friday). Not to mention the Little Gym as well!
Over the past week 67 children have taken over jobs in school and 7 children have taken over jobs in local businesses/organisations.
This morning four children, Malak, Kristel, Isaac and Oscar ‘took over’ Sainsburys as part of Takeover Day.
After a tour around the store with Chris, the Deputy Manager the children set to work on the checkouts, managing the self service checkouts, in charge of decorating the store and inputting orders for the Café and Bakery.
Karen, The Manager of the store heard what an amazing job that the children were doing so came to investigate and subsequently the children have been invited to come back when they are sixteen to apply for jobs!
This afternoon, Noven, Kacey and Sophie spent the afternoon at the MAECare (Moor Allerton Eldery Care) offices. After a tour of the building they set to work making cups of tea and coffee for the staff and preparing the activity room ready for the arrival of the Knitting Group members.
They met and greeted the members, made them drinks, took the register and completed a range of other tasks and even so still found the time to make some pom poms and eat chocolate biscuits!
Thank you to everyone who applied for a job and to be part of Takeover Day.
This year 118 children applied and it was a very hard task over the weekend to create a shortlist. There were so many well presented applications but unfortunately not everyone can be interviewed for jobs.
The list of children that have been shortlisted is up in the KS2 block near the classrooms of Year 5. Please check for your name and the day that you will have your interview.
Remember if you would like to take part in this year’s Takeover Challenge you need to hand in your completed application form to Miss Whiteley by FRIDAY 10th NOVEMBER!
Collect your application form from Miss Whiteley.
You have 3 more days until the deadline!
