Our cake sale for class playground toys were exceedingly busy. A huge thank you to all those people who supported us by making and buying cakes and biscuits. The Meadow was crammed full of people and cakes.
All the School Council were there to help set up and sell the goods. A big thank you to them. Also, a thank you to Mrs. Caddy and Miss Pasmore who volunteered to help sell and they made the whole process slick and easy.
On the day, with money owed, the cake sale raised £79.05. There were quite a few cakes and biscuits left over so they were taken to an office in Westbury where donations were given for the cakes during the workman breaks. Westbury made another £18.94 so the grand total for the sale was £97.99.
Thank you everyone.
Watch out for the School Council hot chocolate sale after school on Tuesday 29th November.
I am so proud of the School Council. We had the cake sale today. The School Council made posters to promote the sale and four of them were available to make a variety of biscuits last Friday after school. Today, all of them were busy behind the scenes selling cakes and biscuits to the Westwood School community. Due to their efforts in persuading friends, family and school staff to make cakes and biscuits, our cake sale raised a massive £78.05 with some money still due in.
Well done to the school council and a huge thank you to the staff, parents and pupils who made this a success. Now we will start to buy our class footballs and playground toys.
Our next sale is at the end of November – hot chocolate after school. Watch this space!
It is official!

Last year, the School Council raised money to buy a Friendship bench.
They had two cake sales, a stall at the Christmas Fair in December and another stall at the Summer Fair. They bought the bench after Easter and decorated it to make it look more friendly. A big thank you for all their hard work.
With a new school year, we have a new set of School Councillors.
Welcome to Lizzie, Charlie, Jenna, Izzy, Angus and Ros!
They have been busy finding out what Westwood school would like to fund-raise for this year. Their questions, posed to the whole school in assembly and in class discussions will result in a decision this coming week. The school community came up with some ace ideas and some great fundraising events they would like to take place.
So far this term (we are only at the end of week 3), the School Council have been busy – they have had two meetings, a whole school assembly and a litter pick in the vegetable garden.
Our next meeting is on Tuesday 27th September at 1:20pm on Orchid. Please leave any ideas below for the School Council to discuss.

At the moment we are thinking about what play equipment we would like outside to play with at play time and lunch time to make our school experience better. This could be small equipment or large equipment in the ground to climb on. Please leave a comment with some ideas for what you think would be good for our school.
