A little while ago I challenged the school to think of ways to reinvigorate our parent/teacher association, which for many years has been called Friends of Loxdale. Raising money for the benefit of children in school is really important and with a nice new school building it seemed a great opportunity to re-launch our fund raising. As such we decided to set a challenge to the children to create a new name and logo, which would hopefully encourage parents, families and friends to get involved.
Children across school entered the competition; entering either names, logos or both. The children on school council co-ordinated much of the work and spent time shortlisting the many entries. Mrs Scott and I were then invited to a meeting with the Year 5 and Year 6 school council members to choose a winner. It wasn’t easy and in the end we have chosen elements from several entries for the final design and each of the winning entries will get a prize.
So what have we chosen? Well you’ll just have to wait until after half-term to find out!!!
In the meantime I really need to thank the school council for their hard work in overseeing this process. The children were able to explain their thought process for shortlisting and their confidence in presenting ideas was very impressive indeed. It was great to be made to feel so welcome by school council and thank you for everything you have done.
