At Howick, we encourage and support our children to be "courageous advocates". This means they champion causes which are special and meaningful to them. These may be global issues or matters far more personal and closer to home.
We believe this develops resilience, teamwork, courage and independence and an understanding of the wider world and how they can help make it a better place, enabling our children to flourish.
Courageous Advocacy Champions 2022-2023
Our courageous advocacy champions are a group of children from Class 4 who are working to ensure that our whole school can be agents of change.
During their first meeting, our champions discussed the skills needed in order to be a good courageous advocate.
Class 3 - Climate Change
Class 3 have found out about the floods in Pakistan by reading articles in First News and watching Newsround.
We decided to find out why the floods had happened and investigated climate change.
The children discussed the impact we are having on the climate and decided on things they were going to do to help.

Shoe Box Appeal
Our Student Council have decided to give hope to others during Advent and Christmas by taking part in the International Aid Shoe Box appeal.
Please can you bring any of the following items into school by Wednesday 8th December.
We have filled 36 shoeboxes - amazing work!
These will be sent to those less fortunate than us and will spread our value of hope to others.
Our Class 4 student councilors visited the warehouse to drop off our shoe boxes. They enjoyed seeing all the different items that have been donated.
Class 1 Cake Sale
Inspired by their learning of superheroes and the efforts of Captain Tom Moore, Class 1 decided that they wanted to be real life superheroes and raise money for Ukraine. They used their weekly bake to create and make a variety of cakes to sell to members of their school community. Our little superheroes raised a total of £50 for those in need and as a school family we could not be more proud of their efforts. Well done Class 1!
