Bring £1.00 and wear odd shoes to school.

 

At Kings Meadow we are learning to be part of our community.

Here are some of the projects we are involved with and fund raising activities we support.

Harvest – collecting food

Choir - singing Christmas carols at the local Methodist church

Year 5 produced poppy art work inspired by the artist Carol Nelson for Remembrance commemorations. The work was displayed in Ainsdale Methodist Church Hall.

We are part of the SLP – ‘Southport Learning Partnership’. We are continuing with the project ‘Helping Hands’.

Here, we support the Senior Citizens of our community together with other local schools.

Our first meeting took place at Meols Cop High School to meet other School Council members and generate ideas for the year ahead.

Kings Meadow pupils joined the Senior Citizens at Ainsdale Community Centre for a delightful Christmas lunch. Afterwards they distributed cards from members of our school. New friends were made across the generations.

Members of the School Council went to Meols Cop High School to meet other school representatives and discuss this year's Southport Learning Partnersip (SLP) group ideas. Kings Meadow Primary School will be continuing with the Helping Hands project which focuses on supporting Senior Citizens in our local area.

On Thursday 24th March members of our School Council attended an Easter Lunch at Ainsdale Methodist Community Centre. Our school made Easter cards and baked cakes which were distributed during the luncheon. They were very much appreciated by all the attending senior citizens. Other schools taking part in our project cluster group were Birkdale Boys Jazz band, Ainsdale St John's dancers and Shoreside and Kew Woods Bonnet Parade.

Kings Meadow School took part in a project to support our local Foodbank. Along with other schools we had a Mufti day on Friday 12th February 2016 with the theme of 'Love my Community 'where we collected contributions of food and also accepted donations of money. As you can see from the photographs, your generation to this worthwhile cause has been exceptional. Many thanks on behalf of the School Council to everyone who supported us on a very successful day.

Children in Need

 

Children in Need Friday November 14th 2014 was another well supported year by Kings Meadow Primary School. We raised a total of £210 pounds from donations and colouring competitions. The children came dressed as superheroes and were a colourful sight. The proceeds were divided between Children in Need and the Ebola crisis in Africa.

 

Thanks from the School Council go to everyone who donated money.

The School Council are once again working hard to support the Rotary club in Southport by agreeing to take part in the competition, Serice Above Self. It involves finding ways to help or support these key areas,

A special School Council meeting took place on 14th October with Councillor Patricia Keith and Lynn Thompson attending. They came to invite our school to get involved in an Environmental project linked to 'Rubbish Friends'.  A copy of the minutes outlines the details of very exciting poster competition. All members of the council are very keen to take part.

  • We began with introductions to Councillors Patricia Keith and Lynne Thompson.
  • The meeting today was about sending a litter message across town. Cllr Keith regularly meets with a group of volunteers to clean up messy areas around Southport. She very much would like to involve the children in this message. A pilot scheme has been set up consisting of five schools near to the shore. St John’s Ainsdale, Merefield, St Patricks, Marshside and Kings Meadow.
  • A4 Poster Competition to clean up the environment. In colour using felt pens, paints or crayons. To include a slogan or message about litter.
  • The 5 best posters from each school would be mounted and displayed at the Atkinson Gallery from December and the winning poster would be chosen in February 2015. The winning poster will be mounted on bins near school and on the big town bins and possibly the bin lorry as well.
  • School Council agreed it was a great project to support.
  • We ended the meeting with some photographs.
