January Question

What would be a good New Year's Resolution for our whole school?

Upcoming School Council Events:

15th March - Red Nose Day

Recent Discussion

17th January

We discussed Red Nose Day, which is on the 15th March. The children put forward that, in previous years, they have always enjoyed being able to buy noses from the school office to help fundraise. It was decided we would do this again.

We also discussed other enjoyable events in the school. One of the members brought up World Book Day, which is on 7th March. We discussed that dressing up as book characters and sharing books was something that the children enjoyed, so we will do again this year.

The children also mentioned an Easter Disco, as the Christmas one was such a success. We discussed that a good option would be to have separate Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 discos, so that there is more space in the hall and so that music can be better suited to more children.

27th November

We discussed the recent Children In Need fundraising event and its success. The school council representatives also said that many of the children enjoyed the merchandise that was in offer in school for both Children In Need and Remembrance Day. The children liked the Mufti Day, and were glad that there was a theme (Spots and Stripes) rather than just being told you could wear anything. 

We also discussed Chrismas ideas and what we could do to celebrate Christmas. The children discussed the Carol Service in the church, the Christingle service in school, and how these were important events in the school calendar. 

24th September

In our first meeting of the year, we welcomed all of our new members. We discussed what being in school council is all about and what the children will need to do. We looked up the word 'representative' so we all knew what it meant!

In our next meeting, we are going to look in all the classrooms and make sure there are school council boards up and that the children can get to the suggestion slips!

  • What makes our School Council a good one?

    A good School Council is one that represents the views of all students and gets things done!

    Many schools have councils, but they are not all successful. These are some things that make our council effective:

    • Regular meetings
    • A council that is not too big
    • Class/Form councils that meet regularly
    • Good communication between representatives and their class
    • Training for school council members
    • Smaller groups (subcommittees) working on specific events or issues
    • A bank account
