A visit from Acorns Children’s Hospice
In the fourth meeting of the year, our councillors welcomed two visitors from Acorns Children’s Hospice. The purpose of the meeting was twofold: to learn about the important work that goes on at Acorns to support children in need, and to consider how our school might support the charity in the future.
Our ABPS councillors listened particularly well to the representatives from Acorns, and soon they were talking about ways in which our school might raise money for the charity. It was agreed that our school will support the work of Acorns, and councillors will now gather the thoughts of their classmates about possible sponsorship activities.
Actions for the next meeting
Members of the council were asked to capture the views of their peers about raising money for Acorns Children’s Hospice. In particular, we would like children to think of sponsored activities that might be carried out by individual year groups – supporting creativity within the older and younger children.
