Welcome to our new School Council!
Our School Council is made up of children from each class. Our older councillors help with organising and running the School Council.
We held elections at the start of the year where the previous year’s School Council came round to each class and told us what being on the School Council was all about. Then, if we thought we would do a good job, we put our names forward for the elections – they were very popular! To make sure it was fair, we held votes in our classes and voted for the 2 children we thought would make the best contribution to the school council.
Our School Council:
The chosen councillors for this year are:
Hazel Class – Eva and Ethan
Holly Class – Jo and Bo
Money Puzzle Class – Tommie and Rita
Beech Class – Elsie, Kira and Evie
The Role of the School Council
” I think the role of the school council is to show people around when they come to visit and to help people solve problems.” Ellie – Beech Class Year 4
“The role of the school council is to look after each other and to organise fundraising.” Sienna – Beech Class Year 4
“We help raise money for others.” Bromley – Ash Class Year 1
“The school council make our school a happier and friendly place.” Harry – Hazel Class Year 2
Our Chosen Charities
At our first council meeting, we collected ideas and voted on a charity that we would like to support as a school this year.
We have decided that we will be supporting Ferne Animal Sanctuary and Toilet Twinning
We will be holding fundraising events and working with the charity over the year, so keep your eyes peeled!
In our School Council meetings, which we have at least once per month, we work very closely with Mrs Jones and Mrs Lawrence to ensure that we are part of making decisions about our school. We organise and spend our own budget, choosing things that we believe would improve the school for all of us. We collect ideas from our classmates and bring these ideas to School Council meetings.
We are currently working closely with Mrs Noake to introduce play leaders into our school. We have discussed with her the qualities that we think these people should have and what their role should be. Our councillors from Beech Class are now working hard to organise the children that have put their name forward for this extra responsibility and will be part of training them and ensuring they carry out their roles well.
