School Council

Posted on

p-swirlydiscoIn September, each class in Years 1 to 6 elects somebody to join our school council.

Our school council meet every half-term. In these meetings they will have the opportunity to express the views and suggestions of people in their class. After the meetings the councillors will feed back any important information to their peers. We hope that through their membership of the school council pupils will develop important life skills, such as speaking and listening skills, teamwork, emotional literacy, problem-solving, moral reasoning skills, self-esteem and self confidence. We hope it will enable pupils to have a voice and to understand that their opinions count.

In the last year the School Council have assisted in or organised several events including raising money to provide a School Council Budget, which has been used on various schemes including books. The played a crucial role in our garden design week and have raised over £700 for charity in the past 12 months.

Welcome back after the holidays.

Christmas Baubles

Discussion between school council on ideas, should we do pupil photos or write names on the baubles. We have all decided that we could do both and give parents the choice on what they would like to order.

Mrs Jones will order some tester baubles so we can practice these ideas to make sure they will look good.

We looked at the cost of making baubles, using bigger and better quality baubles as these would look better and last longer.

The price we feel would be good to sell them at is £2.50 each which would give us a very good profit. We are still deciding if this is a good price.

The school council decided Mrs Buckley and Mrs Jones should go onto The Apprentice.

Suggestion box

We have had lots of suggestions that we have discussed at the meeting.

Our favourites were….

  • Have an Autumn Fair
  • Goal posts for playing football on the KS2 playground
  • Ice cream party at Christmas –

 

School Council News

A Newspaper about school council news will go out once every term to let parents know about what we are doing in our school council and how to help us.

This newspaper will be about what we are fundraising for, and how we are doing this using the baubles and penny pot.
