We have 3 ‘Task Groups’ which meet on a regular basis to discuss, plan and organise activities and events for the school. All senior class pupils have an opportunity to express a preference for which of the 3 task groups they would like to be part of. Staff then allocate pupils to the various groups, taking these requests into account. Each group has a notice board and folder which they keep up to date and they also provide information for newsletters. Every week a different group works with the P1-4 class to lead a lesson on what they have been planning and developing.
They work alongside our other Task Groups to organise fundraising events, often with direct involvement from the Alford and District Rotary Club, for the whole school. These vary from Red Nose Day to the Rotary Shoebox Appeal.
All senior class pupils get the opportunity to take their pledge to be Rotakids:
“As a Rotakid I endeavour to be fair to all, To serve my community, and to show respect to others.”
HEALTH/RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOLS GROUP

The Health group are also working towards our Silver Rights Respecting Schools Award and on promoting awarness of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child across the whole school community.
Our Eco Group have recently worked hard to achieve our Green Flag Award and continue to carry out a range of activities to maintain this. This includes planning for and maintaining our school planting areas throughout the year as well as planting and harvesting what is grown.
