Young Leaders Award Morning

Well done to our Young Leaders! Today they completed their awards and received their certificates during our Young Leaders Coffee Morning. It was lovely to see so many parents and family members at the event and we were very honoured to have Rozy Brian, a representative of the Youth Trust, to come and present the certificates.

Young Leaders Bring and Buy Sale

Thank you to everyone who donated to and visited our Bring and Buy sale on 18th May. Our Young Leaders worked very hard to organise and prepare for the sale, then showed fantastic initiative and leadership skills by running it all themselves. They all made us very proud! Together we raised £50 for Christian Aid from the refreshments (a charity chosen by the children following their own research) and over £200 for our playground project!
We would also like to thank Phillip Anthony Photography for the very kind donation of vouchers for our raffle.

Young Leaders Charity Fundraiser

On 30th March, our Young Leaders held a non-uniform day at school to raise money for their chosen charities. The children had to choose and research different local, national and international charities that they felt they wanted to support. These were Snappy York, Cancer Research UK, The PTFA, Shelter, Africa's Gift and of course the Youth Trust. They then made posters and flyers to advertise the event.

Young Leaders

Our Year 4 and Year 5 pupils are completing their Young Leaders awards this year. The award was set up by the Archbishop of York's Youth Trust and its aim is to help our young people to 'Be the change you want to see'. You may have read some of our news in the village Churches Magazine.
In order to achieve their award, the children have to complete a series of classroom based challenges where we learn what it means to be great leaders , as well as at least five personal challenges where we can help people in our local community.

Representing Appleton Roebuck in the Star Alliance

A member of our school council joined representatives from other schools in the local area to agree aims and values for the STAR alliance.

The meeting was hosted by Riverside school and gave the children time to get to know each other before getting down to the more serious issue of children's rights and responsibilities. It was quite difficult ordering the statements taken from the UN convention by what was most important to the children.

There will be an official launch later in the school year. Watch this space!
