Black and Yellow Day
23rd May 2014
The school was awash with black and yellow dress today in support of the charity, Dogs Trust. The children were asked for a donation of £1 in exchange for swapping their uniform and receiving a bone shaped biscuit to decorate and eat.
The idea was the brainchild of the School Council. Children in each class were invited to nominate a charity for the school to support. Each class then voted for their favourite and their representatives presented it to the School Council, who took the final vote. There was lots of support for Dogs Trust whose logo is black and yellow - leading to the idea for the non-uniform day.
Mrs Grant and the Council members were extremely busy throughout the week baking hundreds of bone shaped biscuits and every child was given one to decorate with yellow icing before eating them.
The School Council comprises of two children selected from each class and two members of staff. Meetings are held regularly and provide the children with an opportunity to voice their views about the school and to have a role in deciding how best to improve the school environment.
Dogs Trust (formerly the National Canine Defence League) is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK. Their mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction.
