Following the success of the Young Mayor's programme, Downderry were invited to visit with the Mayor of Lewisham, Sir Steve Bullock. Some of our year 5 and 6 pupils, along with other local schools, met with the Mayor in his chambers and asked some challenging questions!
School Council invited local MP Heidi Alexander in for assembly and to announce new Head Pupils.
Downderry Primary School were incredibly lucky to begin the new year with a visit from our local MP Heidi Alexander. Heidi delivered a motivational assembly to the children, talking about the responsibility of head pupils and members of school council representatives. Heidi also discussed her role as a Labour MP and answered the children's challenging questions. To finish the inspiring assembly, Heidi announced the names our of new Head Boy and Head Girl Alex and Maurisha.
School council organised a competition to design some magnificent mosaics. The mosaics, pictured below, adorns the walls of the Dining Hall and school office.
The impact of the school council can also be seen by the installation of additional playground apparatus to the key stage 2 playground.
