School Council

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

 

Maddie Yorke was voted in as our Chairperson, India Kheti as our Vice Chair and Connie Bearpark as our Secretary.

Maddie’s manifesto {Chairperson}

My name is Maddie and I running to be your Chair of School Council. I would like to take part because I think I could be a good Chair and would listen to all of your ideas. I would never stop you from pitching new ideas to make events better and would attempt to enhance the school in a positive way. I would make sure to hold events that everyone enjoys and would like to attend. I promise to do my best to answer any of your queries or questions about something School Council has arranged and would make every effort to deal with them as soon as possible. I would make sure that we arrange events that most of you will be able to come to as there will be lots of arrangements in school time and some at the end of the day too, for example exciting competitions involving cake sales!

I really hope I can get enough votes to become your Chair of School Council. Thank you so much for listening!

Hi I am India and I would like to be the Vice Chair of School Council. I think you should vote for me because I have been on School Council twice and so I have lots of experience. I will include everyone’s ideas and I am a good listener. I will help arrange events. I hope you will vote for me. Thank you.

 

Connie’s Manifesto {Secretary}

Hello I’m Connie and I am running for School Council Secretary. I think that I would make a good secretary because I love writing and as secretary they do a lot of writing! I think you should vote for me because I have been on School Council twice now so I have had some experience with planning events. I would love helping to organise different events and I am also quite good with the computer! I would also love to be on School Council in general because it looks really fun. I think you should definitely vote for me!

 

Armistice Day

On 11th November 2017 we invited some soldiers to join us for our Remembrance Assembly to help us remember those who had risked their lives for us. Captain Small and Corporal Dil came into our assembly hall and told us what it was like to be a soldier; they also recited some poems associated with Armistice Day. After this, the school council committee gave the soldiers a tour of our school, allowing them to spend some time in each classroom where they answered the questions that many of us children had.

In the run up to Armistice Day we sold poppies, poppy bracelets, poppy wrist bands and reflectors to raise money for the Royal British Legion and to show our support to the troops. These funds have been sent to the Royal British Legion and we are waiting to hear how much we raised.

What has School Council done for Charity?

At School Council we really enjoy supporting charities by doing lots of different events. We love helping children and adults around the world who are less fortunate than us.

For Children in Need 2017 we decided to wear spots to school. In order for us to do this we had to bring in a donation so that it could be given to Children in Need. We managed to raise nearly £300 which will go to helping children in the UK.

At one of our first School Council meetings we held a vote to decide which charity we would support. This year we have decided our main School Council charity will be Cancer Research UK.

When Christmas came around we decided to take part in the Hawley School Association’s Christmas Fayre. School Council held two stalls: ‘Guess the name of the Teddy’ and ‘Where’s the Robin?’ These stalls were held amongst many others as part of the event. We raised £94.12 on the day.

We combined the money raised at the Christmas Fayre with money raised by School Council last year found we had £180! We decided to donate £100 of this to Cancer Research UK and continue fundraising in the New Year.
