On Thursday 14th February during our themed week, the School Council visited St Anthony's Stay and Play, where they demonstrated the virtues of service and patience, sharing love within our community. The children assisted the vistors in playing games and serving the toddlers during snack time. All the members of the school council shone with their caring, patient nature. Well done School Council!
Take a look at some of out pictures from the morning below!
South Leeds Independence Centre Visits - Autumn 2
The School Council visits South Leeds Independence Centre
During Autumn 2, our School Council members made visits to the South Leeds Independence Centre/Recovery Hub. During their visits, they chatted to service users, sung cheerful Christmas carols, served drinks and food to service users and even made special Christmas cards for residents who may not have had a visit from many family members over the Christmas period.
I was so incredibly proud of each and every member of the School Council! Each and every child spoke to and interacted with the service users with a high level of respect and compassion. I know that they put a genuine smile on each one of the residents faces with their beautiful singing and happy conversation.
The School Council said that they thoroughly enjoyed meeting people from all different walks of life, and helping them in any way they can...even if it is drawing a picture together or chatting about their favourite things to do.
Well done School Council!

A huge well done to the School Council Representatives 2017-2018!
Well done to all of the School Council Representatives for your hard work this year. You have worked so hard as a group to help and inspire others to make our school and community a better place.
This year you have:
- Visited Leeds Civic Hall to meet the Lord Mayor, to discover how you can make a difference to the community in which you live.
- Held a hugely successful raffle during our #moreincommon themed week, raising a massive £159 for the Martin House Charity.
- Visited Leeds Beckett University during our Aspirations themed week, to find out more about how to follow your dreams and achieve your goals. Each one of you took away some valuable lessons about leadership, team work and self-belief...which I know you all shared with your peers when we returned to school.
- Led an assembly about the aims of the School Council, inspiring others to make a difference within our school and wider communities.
- Assisted in leading the Fairtrade coffee morning, being real ambassadors for our school by greeting guests, serving food and drinks and running a swap shop clothes stall.
I am very proud of each and every one of you next year, and am looking forward to seeing what next year holds for our inspiring School Council leaders at St Anthony's.
Well done for a successful year!

We delivered our first assembly as a School Council!
During 'Aspirations' themed week, our assembly spoke about our role within school and how we inspire each and every day to make the school the best place it can possibly be! We aim to give you a voice in our school and we can work together to achieve something really special! We interviewed different members of staff to discover what inspired them to pursue their chosen careers and asked them questions such as "what inspired you to become a teacher?" and "how do you inspire our youngest learners in school?"
Come and ask one of your School Council Representatives if you want to discover more about our role in school!

Our School Council visits Leeds Beckett University!
A great big thank you!
Yesterday the School Council members counted how much money had been raised in our raffle during the #moreincommon themed week. We could not quite believe it when we discovered that we had raised a massive £159! The money will be sent to the charity Martin House Hospice, which will greatly help to provide family led care for children with life shortening illnesses.
All of the School Council members would like to warmly thank those who took part in the raffle.
