At Barons Court our Year 6 pupils are selected by pupils to represent their voice on the Pupil Leadership Team. This team consists of a Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl who meet with the Headteacher every Tuesday lunchtime.
The New Pupil Leadership Team 2016-2017
Children have all worked hard on a challenging interview process. They have written excellent job applications and have undergone interviews by the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher with a final presentation to the whole school community.
Our new Pupil Leadership Team are: Sonny, Marnie, Rafi and Florence.
This year the children have decided to continue to support 'Educate for Life' as their chosen charity. We are
following a class of children who started at the school Hunar Ghar last July in Balwadi 1. This past year has been an incredible experience for them. These little ones are just four years old and most are the first generation in their families to ever attend school. It is a remarkable achievement that these 32 pupils (21 boys and 11 girls) have remained in school for nearly a full academic year. Even more importantly, they have enjoyed themselves. The ethos at Hunar Ghar is that learning can be a fun and creative process and our youngest pupils are encouraged to become confident and imaginative learners just like us at Barons Court. We look forward to supporting them during the year.
In November the Pupil Leadership Team organised 'Our Children in Need Day'. The whole school was involved and we all had a great day fundraising. We managed to raise a grand total of £455.25 for our class in Hunar Ghar and we welcomed in the charity to collect the money from us.
This year we are continuing to support Educate for Life through an exciting new project. Their academic year at Hunar Ghar started in July and this year they have started a breakfast club. The school were already providing lunch to all their pupils - as two thirds of children in Bakhel are malnourished - and now they are also serving breakfast too. That's 880 meals each day! Their cost per breakfast is approx 13p, meaning that it costs approx £57 to provide the whole school with breakfast each day (440 breakfasts). Our pupils at Barons Court are going to help fundraise towards the breakfast costs. Below are a couple of photos of children having breakfast at school at the start of the day and the newly expanded cooking team. All at the school are very pleased to have been able to create some new employment opportunities for women from the local community by recruiting them to the kitchen team and they have been given a uniform to create a sense of unity and professional work - we all think they look amazing!
