-The School Council have decided that the chosen charity for 2018/19 will be St Lukes Hospice South West.
- Our first fundraiser was very successful. the school Council decided to have their first 'Cuddly Toy Day' where the children could bring a toy to school in exchange for a donation.
- During the Autumn Term, the School Council helped to interview several new members of staff for the school. They took their role very seriously and asked some tricky questions of the candidates.
-Year Three and Four Councillors visited a local park (Radford Avenue) and met with a Rebecca from Plymouth Council. They discussed plans for a new playground and made their views heard about which new equipment they would like. Rebecca remarked how mature the Councillors were and what sensible, interesting suggestions they brought to the visit.

Oliver Colvile MP
Recently we were lucky enough to be visited by Oliver Colvile MP. He enjoyed a tour of our school and then answered some questions which all of the children had helped to think of. Amongst other things he told us that a good leader should be inspirational, a good listener and able to work well with others. He also said his favourite childhood books were the Jungle Book and Swallows and Amazons. He said he thought the children of Prince Rock were extremely polite and he really enjoyed his visit to our school.
