Thank you to all the children who put themselves forward as Academy Council candidates. They have worked hard campaigning, making posters and giving speeches.
The elections were held on the 2nd of October and the results were announced on the 8th of October.
The official inauguration will be on the 12th November when the new Academy Councillors will be presented with their golden sweatshirts. And then the hard work starts!
Great Kidgate Bake Off
What a great time we had baking in June and July. The project was an absolute success. All children in all year groups had the opportunity to make or create something to eat. There were pizzas, pancakes, sandwiches, waffles and meringues. The judging was tricky but Mr Lidbury, Mrs Hopwood and Mrs Hallion all helped out. They looked for something healthy included, neat presentation and if it looked yummy! When all the making, creating, tasting and judging had been completed then it was time for the winners. Star Bakers were named from each class and presented with a Star Baker apron. Thank you to all the children who took part and well done to all the Academy Council for a great project from start to finish.
Donations of Cooking Equipment
Thank you to all the parents and carers who have donated cooking equipment to help to kick start our new project, Kidgate Cooks.
The Academy Council Reps are busy writing letters to chefs to see if they can help with our project too.
Academy Council Reps help collect all the donations for Sports Relief.
The Academy Council have been voting. They have made a decision about a new project, it is called Get Baking. They think this is the next step following the success of Get Growing. They are hoping to start using the produce that we grow and other ingredients to bake, cook and prepare food more often in school.
How they are going to achieve this? Well watch this space!
Children in Need
The Academy Council braved the cold to help to collect the donations for Children in Need. Thank you to everyone who donated towards this worthy charity.
The Official inauguration of our
new Academy Council
On Monday the 13th November we had a visit from the Mayor of Louth (Mrs Watson) and her Sergeant at Arms. The Mayor kindly answered questions about her role and told the children about how she was elected.
The new Academy Council Representatives were handed their golden jumpers ready to start their new roles.
What a success the project has been!
This is what the garden looks like before the harvesting of the crops begins. More to follow when we know what the crops we have.
Well the project is certainly underway now. Big thank you to Mr Sharp who made the new raised beds, they are fantastic. Also a very big thank you to all the volunteers who helped to move all the soil into the raised beds ready for the classes to use. What will be planted? It's up to the children to decide.
