School Council Summer Fete - A Huge Success!
What an event! Thank you to all those who came and supported it and all those many others who helped set up, run a stall and pack away after. It was great to see the school field so busy and to see our families altogether.
A special well done to our School Council members who have planned and organised the event from scratch. I am proud to announce they raised approximately £750 from the fete!
Adding this with profits from other fundraising events across the year our school council have raised a whopping £950!
Our members have invested £250 to help create a cleaner school environment at Cheddon (which you will see implemented in the new school year) with introduction of playground bins and a litter picker crew with all the safety gear.
Finally, our school, through their members, nominated Love Musgrove as their chosen charity to support for the year. We welcomed representatives from Love Musgrove, Zoe and Elliott, to join our school celebration assembly where we were able to hand over our donation of £500 which will be put towards supporting their Children's Ward.
Here are some of the businesses supporting our summer fair this year...

Recycle Your Ink Cartridges with us!
If you have any out of date or used printer ink cartridges then why not recycle them to raise money for charity. Please bring in your cartridges and deposit them in the recycling box located at the front of school.
Christmas Movie Night!
Another event from the School Council. This time it was a Christmas movie night where children could purchased a ticket to come back to school in the evening in their pyjamas. Where their classrooms had been transformed into a small cinema with popcorn and hot chocolate! It was a brilliant evening (not sure how much of the film they watched) and everyone left feeling very festive.
Again, the School Council would like to thank you all for attending this event and help raise a staggering £100.
Cheddon is Going Green with Terracycle!
School Council have listened to a passion throughout school for a need to reduce waste and recycle where we can. Therefore, the council have researched and found a company called Terracycle who will recycle items that usually can't be recycled through local collections. Members from each class have created boxes to collect crisps packets and pens that would usually find their way to landfill. Once we have enough, we will send them off to be recycled. Please bring in empty crisps packets and dried out pens from home to help reduce our waste as a community. We only have one planet.
Decorate a Pumpkin/ Veg/ Fruit Fundraiser Competition!
The council members organised and ran a harvest pumpkin/ veg/ fruit decorating competition across the whole school. Children could submit their entry with a £1.50 donation inspired by whatever they liked. All money raised will be put towards future School Council events and the growing tally raised for local charity Love Musgrove. School Council members thought long and hard to select the top three entries from each class and we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part. The imagination was exceptional and we have raised an amazing £60!
School Council Seeks Support for Taunton Foodbank
Our members were inspired by our build up to harvest and wanted to support families in our community. They wrote a letter to Sue Weightman to find out what specific foods the foodbank needs at this time of the year.
Our Elected 2021-22 School Council Members
At the start of the school year, each class had to vote on who they wished to elect for the school council. Two members from each class were elected. Since then the school council has met every two weeks. They have decided to support the charity Love Musgrove this year. Well done to each class for voting in the election!
