The School Council have met several times now and they are currently working on what to do for Comic Relief. Ideas include throwing sponges at the Headteacher, Jumble Sale and a Lottery.
They have also met with the Chair of the PTA and have helped making a list of fundraisers including a Fashion Show and a sleep over in the field.
The School Council.
At the start of the year the children in the school voted for members of their classes to represent them on our school's School Council.
At our first meeting we discussed what the purpose of the School Council was and how the School Council will work. This is what we agreed:
What is the school council?
The school council is a voice for all the children in the school. The school council members were voted in by their classmates. They were chosen because they were trustful, kind, helpful reliable, forgiving, showed they could listen to others and most importantly were selfless.
We have a school council to give the children in our school the chance to take a lead in making the school a better place. This is important because Article 12 of the International Rights of the Child says that “Children have he right to say what they think should happen when adults are making decisions that affect them and to have their opinions taken into account.”
Why do we have a school council?
How the school Council will do this.
- Asking the children in the school what things could be improved or changed. They will do this through Class council meetings, talking to children, talking to governors and teachers and in their school Council meetings.
- Making plans or undertaking projects.
- Finding people to do jobs.
- Finding money for projects.
- Organising events and trips.
Who is in the School Council
Two members of each class (Holly, Willow & Thorn) are on the school council along with the school ambassadors.
