#HoxtonHotspots – Shoreditch Park Primary School’s New Year’s Resolutions
January might over, but that doesn’t mean its too late to start getting some new year’s resolutions in place. Whether it’s a pledge to get fitter, be a bit greener or give a little something back to a good cause, there are many things we can all be doing to make 2018 the best year yet.
If you’re struggling for inspiration for your own ‘new year, new me’ pledges, never fear – our esteemed and trusted members of Shoreditch Park Primary School’s school council are on hand to provide their insights and inspirations, and share the things they will be doing to better themselves and their environments in 2018…
Hi team! First thing’s first – what was everyone’s favourite Christmas present?
Chelsie, Year 4 – I had a great Christmas! We had family arrive on Christmas Eve and stay for the entire holidays. I couldn’t choose a favourite Christmas present though - I loved every single one of them!
Will any of you be making a new year’s resolution to do more to meet the school’s ‘Aspire’ code of conduct?
Aspire stands for: Aspiration and Achievement; Self-awareness; Pride; Inclusion; Respect and Enquiry
Ibrahim, Year 4 – I will definitely be doing more to meet the Aspire code of conduct. At the moment, in our Aspire code of conduct, we are focusing on positive communication. This means that when people come to the school council with their opinions, we are learning and practicing to answer them in a positive way.
Is there anything you would like the school council to do in 2018 that you didn’t have a chance to do in 2017?
Atakan, Year 4 – We had the chance to do loads of really great things on the school council in 2017 but this year we’d love to do even more! It would be great if we could go on a school council trip, to meet local people and spread the word on how they can do their bit to make the world a better place.
Finally – are any of you making any new year’s resolutions yourselves?
Chelsie, Year 4 – This year, I will be trying to be more eco-friendly towards the environment. This means that, if I see paper on the floor I will always put it in the recycling bin, and if there is any fruit or vegetable waste, I will put it in the compost bin!
