Children from Year 1 to Year 6 come together with pride to meet, talk and listen to make our school a better place. There are fifteen School Council representatives from Year One to Year Six. The School Council committee has a Chairperson, a Vice-Chair and a Secretary.
The children write a letter of application to be considered for the role and have to present to their class, explaining the reasons why they would like to be chosen. The class votes and this information is shared with the school as a whole.
To be a school council member you need to be:
Sensible - be kind and helpful so that everyone feels happy
Display good teamwork skills
Listen and take turns to speak to share your opinions and ideas
Mature, you are a role-model for your peers
Ready - Miss Baker may want us to do different jobs at different times
Have good manners at all times
Confidence. You may have to speak with people who are from outside our school community, so show confidence in your role and your abilities.
The School Councillors think:
‘We can make the school even better!’ Millie, Y1
‘I love helping people’ Kira, Y4
'I want to improve the school and make it an even better place!' Ellie, YS
‘We represent ourselves, inside and outside school’ Saajana, Y6
‘Our job is to look after the school’ Bruno, Y6
What has our School Council done for charity?
School Council really enjoy supporting charities by planning, organising and celebrating lots of different events. We love helping children and adults around the world who are less fortunate than us.
We support Children in Need every year, and we are currently planning our next event on Friday 17th November 2023.
We are working collaboratively with Farnborough Sixth Form College on an animation and film project this year. We think that it will be great fun!
We are always up for a challenge!
