Gomer Young Governors
Our Gomer Young Governors have a very important role to play in sharing our school community’s ideas and opinions about what we love about our fabulous school, and also what can make it even better! Two children have been selected from each class to attend these meetings. They were selected based on their application form and then voted for by their class mates.
Congratulations to our appointed Young Governors for 2023-2024, they are:
Hedgehogs: Abigail & Myles
Squirrels: Rupert & Jasmine
Dolphins: Ryan & Lyra
Seals: Harper & Sebastian
Bumblebees: Rome & Emilia
Butterflies: Lexie & Jacob
The Young Governors next job is to help the Pogos (our PTA) pick the winning new Pogo logo design (designed by the children). Good luck everybody – watch this space for the winning image!
In January our Governors shared their thoughts and ideas on a painting for the wall of our ELSA room. They wanted to incorporate all of the class animals in their design. Here is the winning design which was painted for us by Mrs Blossom.
Our Young Governors joined us for a community event at our local church, St Mary’s. They visited the Gomer Infant Christmas tree (beautifully decorated by our Art Subject Champions) and took photographs to share back with their classes.
We arranged the Memorial pebbles that children had decorated around the Coronation planter ready for everyone to see and enjoy. We then shared this with the children as part of our assembly.
We also looked at the Coronation portrait that the children made. All children added photographs of themselves which together formed the portrait of King Charles III. This is now proudly displayed in our hall for all the children to see.
New ideas and things we discussed:
We talked about ideas to further develop Lunchtime Play. The children came up with these zones for all of the new play equipment and activities:
- Reading zone (shaded area next to the Buddy Bench)
- Construction zone (decking around the tree)
- Hoops / gymnastics zone (grass area)
- Running / fast games zone (main playground)
We made some plans for the Kings Coronation. We decided to make a portrait of the King which can be displayed in school.
- We want to put the pebbles that we decorated around the bench for people to see
- We would like the bench painted red
- We want some flowers (red, white and blue) and maybe a rose planted
- You can sit on the bench for a quiet time
- We need a sign to explain the area
