Brook Field School Council is made up of a representative from each class from Year 2 to Year 6. We have regular meetings where we discuss and act on our action plan. We then have time in class to feed back and take further ideas.
At the start of this academic year the school council introduced a whole school initiative called the ‘Golden Apple Award’. This is to encourage all of our children to bring to school, on a daily basis, a healthy morning snack. The healthy snack can be fruit, vegetables or breadsticks and cheddar cheese. Please note processed cheese such as cheese strings and dairylee dunkers are not considered to be a healthy choice.
In order to reward classes, the school council carry out two counts of healthy snacks a term. If a class brings in 25 or more healthy snacks on a count day they receive a ‘Golden Apple Award’ presented to them during our Friday assemblies. If a class receives two ‘Golden Apple Awards’ a term the class will receive extra time during a planned playtime on the school’s trim trail. At the end of the academic year in July we will have a look to see if any classes have achieved 10 or more ‘Golden Apple Awards’. The class reward for 10 or more ‘Golden Apple Awards’ will be a fun lunchtime fitness activity supervised by Mr Parsons our sports coach.
