"School council" means all kinds of school-based groups run by students.
The objective of an effective School Council is to:
• enjoy and feel empowered by their education
• feel that their school responds to their needs and views
• have the opportunity to let adults know their feelings and opinions about things that affect them
• have a say about decisions, and to play an active role in making their school a better place
• develop life skills through participation
What do we do?
We meet twice a month to discuss important topics with Miss Allen. We start
by discussing any issues that have been reported to the school council and decide which issues are most important to us.
We have to listen to each others ideas and consider the best approach to solving the issue. It is important to work together as a team in order to be an effective school councillor.
Another very exciting responsibility is to organise fundraising events throughout the year. This year we will organise events for Sports Relief and Children In Need.
We are always preset around school and on hand to try and sort any issues people have. Our classes are aware of who we are and we listen to them if they raise any concerns and share these at our meetings.
Children In Need
This year the school council organised a pajama day for Children In Need. We made posters and displayed these around school, wrote a letter to send to parents and told our classes about the event. We also sold Pudsey ears, bands and bears.
It was funny to see all of the teachers dressed in their pajamas, and we had a brilliant time raising money for Children In Need.
We raised a total of £690.92
Thank you for all your support and donations!!!
For sports relief this year the school council have designed a sponsored obstacle course for the children to complete in their PE sessions.
They researched the equipment that was available and then designed their obstacle course accordingly. We shared our ideas with our teachers who will help us to organise and set up the activities on the day.
We will share details of the event with our classes and with parents by creating and displaying posters around school.
Check back soon to see how much money we raise!
The children enjoyed completing the sponsored obstacle course!
