In School Council children around the school come together to make decisions to make our school an even better environment. All together there are nine School Council representatives from Year One to Year Six, but it doesn’t stop there, Year Six voted for the School Council committee. The School Council committee is made up of a Chairperson, Vice Chair and a Secretary.
In September the children in Year Six put forward their names because they were interested in helping the school and becoming part of the School Council committee. We prepared speeches explaining why we wanted to be a part of school council and the skills that we thought we had.
To be a school council member you need to be:
Great at listening because you need to pay attention to other people’s ideas
Confident enough to speak in front of an audience of people
Clearly able to explain ideas
Organized so you remember to attend the meetings
The secretary has to be good at writing so they can keep the minutes
Luke Britten was voted in as our Chairperson, Charlie Rawes as our Vice Chair and Luke Kennedy as our Secretary.
This term we have looked at improving lunchtimes so that we help the lunchtime supervisors and everybody takes responsibility. We have lots of ideas from children stacking their own chairs to having a head of the table who helps us. We are talking to the lunchtime supervisors so we can make these changes after Christmas.
We have continued to serve Top Table and have decided to theme them. At the moment our theme is winter and we have made a snowflake banner to decorate the table.
We had a special Top Table on 11th November Sergeant Rai and Sergeant Robinson joined us for lunch. We spoke to them about their jobs and told them about our school and being on School Council.
Children in Need
We held a Spotacular Day on Friday 18th November. We asked everybody in school to come to school for the day wearing something spotty and to bring in a donation for Children in Need. The children in School Council also organised a sponsored run. We all ran 3 miles around the school field. It was really hard but we were very proud of ourselves. We raised over £500 for the charity.
