Our School Council is made up from elected children from each class. The class representatives bring ideas and issues from their classes and share them at School Council. They then decide on a specific idea to focus on each term and feedback information about their work to their classes and sometimes to the whole school in assemblies.
They meet with Mrs Richmond once a week and it is the opportunity for the children in our school to share their 'voice'. Their work is focussed on making school even better and local community issues - they really do influence school decisions.
We received an email this week from Mrs Stephens in response to the Healthy Day we have planned. Mrs Stephens suggested that School Council might like to do some work about sun safety and perhaps present an assembly to the school on it. The School Council loved this idea and we have already started planning for it.
This week at our School Council meeting we put the finishing touches to our Healthy Day plans. The children have decided to hold the event on the last day of term – Friday 5th April which will help us finish the term with a ‘bang’! They composed and sent an email to all the teachers explaining what the day will look like and what we need them to do to help make the day a great success.
At our meeting this week we continued to discuss more ideas for our Healthy Day using new ideas from each of the classes. A few further decisions were made and here they are:
1. We will all wear sports kit for the whole day
2. We will have some kind of healthy food tasting
3. All classes will have time outside doing lots of healthy physical activities.
We will continue finalising the ideas next term and keep you posted.
At our meeting this week the children shared their ideas about what we could do on our planned Healthy Day but we soon ran out of ideas so we sent an email to all the classes to ask them for their ideas. We can’t wait to see what they come up with!
This week we held our first School Council meeting of the new term. We talked about how we run our meetings, the role of the secretary and the chairperson and then talked about gathering ideas from classes about what they might work on over the coming weeks to make our school even better.
Here are our new representatives for the spring terms.
At our meeting this week our School Council representatives reviewed their work to improve lunchtimes and reflected on its effectiveness. After lots of discussion they agreed that some things have improved but there is more work they can do. So, after much deliberation they decided they need to focus their attention on improving walking in school particularly at lunchtimes. Next week they will don their Corridor Cop caps and remind our lovely children to walk safely in school.
Exciting news! We have done our voting and we now have our new School Council Representatives for the autumn terms. They are…… Violet Class – Thomas and Grace, Indigo Class – Nicole and Noah R, Green Class – Ava and Nathan, Blue Class – Jesse and Lyla , congratulations to you all! We will be meeting next week for the first time so we’ll let you know how it goes.
School Council met this week and as well as taking on roles such as the secretary and chair they discussed in detail some aspects of school they think they can improve. After lots of debate the children decided that they would like to lead some problem-solving around making assembly time better for everyone. We will keep you posted about what they do in the coming weeks.
Our fantastic School Council representatives did a super job leading our assembly on Monday teaching the whole school how to play safely with scrap using our ‘scrap on scrap’ rule. We will be reintroducing this specific scrap back into our lunchtimes sometime after the break so we will see how well the children have listened then. Great work School Council!
