School Council

Welcome to our School Council Page!

Our School Council consists of one representative from each year group along with the support of our Head Boy and Girl and our Deputy Head Boy and Girl.

  

This year so far we have held class meetings to decide which charities we would like to fundraise for over the next year. There was a lot of brilliant suggestions! We discussed the importance behind each charity and all children got to vote for their favourite and the results were as follows:

Red Nose Day

Help For Heroes

Pendle Dogs in Need

Take a look at our voting record for how the results came in! (Click Here)

.

In the summer term we did a lot of work finding out what a School Council is and deciding if we would like to take part in the up coming year. We submitted our applications and took an official vote across the school to find out who our next representatives would be.

.

We hit the ground running in September 2016 and have already held 2 official School Council meetings. We are planning to hold our first Class Council Meetings of the year during the week commencing 10th October.

.

Our next School Council Meeting is on Friday 14th October

Do you have any ideas for how we can help?

Fill out a suggestion form and put it in our Suggestion Box and we can discuss it at our next meeting.

We have been busy helping out and we thought it would be good to test our skills by supporting a Macmillan Cake Sale in school. We helped to sell the cakes, supported our peers and counted the money raised at the end.

  .

As a council, we decided we would like to find ways to let our peers know who we are and what we do. We made some posters to stick around school to let people know who we are and how they can get involved. We will share them and talk about them at our next Class Council Meetings. Take a look and see what you think!

After our recent Class Council Meetings we had lots of ideas to share with the teachers. We wrote them a letter and asked them to consider our ideas. The teachers fed back and we have worked to put any ideas in place and have written a letter to feed back to our peers.

Christmas has been keeping us busy with lots of ideas!

On Sunday 4th December we helped out on our own stall to raise money for school.

This year we were given our own pot of money within the school budget. We have to try to turn it in to as much as we can make over the year. After a School Council meeting we decided on lots of activities to run such as a lucky dip and a colouring competition. We also thought of lots of ideas for things to sell such as plants and sweet treats.

As a team we spent our lunchtimes creating, making, wrapping and organising all our different things. At the fair we ran the stalls, talking to customers about what we had been doing and pitching sales to raise money!

 

We had a great time and raised an amazing £256.45 towards our charity fundraising and to support our school.
