The school has a pupil’s council made up of elected representatives from each class. The council meets on a half termly basis and it provides the children with a forum to discuss the issues, which they regard as important. Elected members of staff are also on the council and allow the school to respond effectively to the issues raised by the children.
Fair Trade Group
The Fair Trade Group meet on a regular basis to discuss fair trade issues in school. The group is made up of children who are eager to make a difference. The group have invited speakers from Bettys, organised a fair trade harvest festival and ran a fair trade stall at various events.
This group of children meet regularly to discuss ways of making our school a healthier and greener place to live. This year they have helped to reduce our energy bills by turning out lights and saving water by turning taps off properly and composting fruit waste. They have also taken on environmental projects such as the bug hotel, vegetable box competition and maintaining the Peace Garden and litter picking.
Choir and Orchestra
We have a very active choir consisting of over 70 children from Year 2 through to Year 6. They meet every week on a Tuesday after school and regularly perform both in school and at events in Harrogate. Our orchestra meet before school on a Wednesday and consist of a wide variety of instruments and come together with the Choir in the Summer Term to create a fantastic musical evening. As they are such a busy group they have their own website, please follow the link below to find out more about RTS Music.
