Well done to the Council and the school for this most generous of gifts
An excerpt from our Charity SmileMalawi’s newsletter: A BIG THANK YOU
Our children all had a Christmas present this year thanks to Teynham Primary School in Kent, which raised the funds specially for this. The presents arrived in a big box and no-one knew what was inside until Christmas Day! The gifts were all individually wrapped with name-tags.
Our School Council :
This term the school council have got together and decided they would like to raise money for the charity Smile Malawi. Here we are making plans for the Bake-Off – we have invited the teachers to take part on Wednesday and Thursday in the Bake-Off Competitions which we are hoping they will video – the winners of round 1 will go into a final for a lovely trophy!! When we show the video we are having a cake sale and asking for donations all to go to SmileMalawi Orphanage as we are hoping to give each child there a Christmas present from us.
This Charity is supported by our Parish so it really brings our Community together. Click on the logo to find out all about Our 2016 Charity
During the first meeting the children had the opportunity to introduced themselves to each other and ask questions about their roles as school council representatives. During the first meeting we discussed possible charities that our school could support and sponsor this school year. The children will take their ideas back to their classes for further discussion and bring back further ideas to the next meeting in term 2.
Here are the class representatives for the school council:
Year 4 – Keyleigh Humphrey & Kaine Woodgate
Year 2 – Cisco & Sienna Insell
Our first meeting was held on Monday 15th September. The children introduced themselves to each other. We discussed that they need to research and think of a charity that they think the school should sponsor this year and bring their ideas to the next meeting in term 2. If you have any ideas in which charity you would like to sponsor this year, talk to your class representatives.
On Friday 19th September the children were awarded their school council badges during our celebration assembly.

Joshua Walker and Grace Bush, our year 6 school council representatives invited Teynham Parish Council to visit and have a tour of the school. They had a few practice tours with the support of their peers, ready for the Parish Council. On Friday 7th November 2014, Grace and Joshua did a fantastic job representing the school. They showed five members of Teynham Parish Council around the school and school grounds and invited them to stay for our celebration assembly. Well done Grace and Joshua!
As a school we have entered the ‘Total Green School Award’, taking part in the ‘Totally Active’ project. The totally active projects involves working in the school grounds e.g. sensory gardens, ponds, wildlife areas, recycling schemes and composting. At Teynham, we intend to work closely with the school council to create a sensory garden for the children to actively enjoy and explore. The school council representatives will be working together to come up with ideas as to what they would like their sensory garden to look like.
