Recent Discussion

19th December

In our final meeting of 2017, we discussed the Christmas events that had gone on so far. The representatives said that all of the children seemed to really enjoy Christmas Party Day for so many reasons, including the party games, the lunch and meeting Father Christmas. However, all of the representatives commented on how much everyone enjoyed the Silent Disco in the afternoon and how they would love to do it again!

We also talked about what School Council can do for the school moving forward into 2018. We discussed fundraising for Red Nose Day (which will be in Term 4 as it is the 24th March) and what ideas we could use. We talked about different themes for a Mufti Day, and the representatives are going to talk to their classmates and let us know about other fundraising ideas.

27th November

We discussed the recent Chlidren 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. 

In our next meeting in December, we will talk about what sort of events we could have in the New Year for fundraising and raising awarness, as well as looking at the school council suggestions given in by the representatives' classmates.

18th October

Today, we discussed the school council ideas slips that are in every classroom. The representatives are going to collect some of these for each meeting, and we are going to discuss these ideas in our next meeting. We discussed how it is important that these are used, because it means that everyone can suggest ideas for discussion in School Council, and not just the representatives from each class.

We also discussed the upcoming Children In Need fundraising event, and what we should do to fundraise. We decided on a Spots And Stripes Mufti day on the Friday of Children In Need - the 17th November. 

In our next meeting (in November), we are going to talk about how Children In Need went, and look forward to the Christmas events in school.

  • 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
