We have recently had discussions in school about the purchase of new benches for the playground, children in classes were consulted and the final decisions have been given to Mrs Austerfield to go ahead and order them.
The benches are now in place and children are enjoying using them in different areas of the playground.
Aspire School Councils
Through out the year each primary school in the Aspire Partnership pays host to the others.
School council members from each school meet, look around the other schools, share good ideas and organise visitors.
Friday 11.11.16 was Asquith, Andrea Jenkyns the local MP visited and was questioned relentlessly by the all the children.
Tuesday 17.1.17 was Blackgates, police officers attended too, they talked about Road Safety.
Thursday 16.3.17 was Churwell, all the children met volunteers from the Churwell Woodland Group that work and maintain Daffil woods and the local community.
Thursday 22.6.17 we visited Morley Victoria, James and Alyssa were given the opportunity to look round their 5 buildings and agreed things work very differently to how they do at Asquith. The were very impressed with the dumb waiter that allows dinners to travel around school successfully.
Easter at Asquith
On Tuesday 18th April each class held their own Easter Competitions, some children made Easter Bonnets, others made Easter Gardens and our year 6 organised an Easter Bake Off.
The School Council members had the very difficult job on deciding the winners of the amazing creations, James Scott our Hawthorn Class representative particularly enjoyed his judging!
Thursday 20th April Cluster council representatives met at Morley town hall for their half termly meeting. They also visited Queen street where the banners are displayed that each school has created. The theme this year is 'all around the world'. Asquith's is located outside onwards and upwards. It was created by Alyssa Richards in Year 6.
Tuesday 25th April 2017, school council visited the construction site of the new cinema complex at the White Rose Centre. They got a good insight of work in progress, health and safety and witnessed the heavy machinery removing rubble. The new complex is hopefully opening in the autumn and will include an I-Max cinema and many restaurants.
