Overview of last year
During the course of last year, the members of the School Council worked extremely hard for the school and represented their fellow pupils well.
The first event of the year was the Macmillan Coffee Morning. The children organised the event which was a great success, raising £259.
One of the main foci for the council was to find a way of working with the whole school. They achieved this by introducing worships to support topics, which they had been working on. e.g. Anti-Bullying and What Makes a Family. The worships went well with very positive feedback from pupils of all ages.
I would like to thank last year's school councillors for the wonderful job they did.
Plans for this year
I believe that this year's school councillors are going to develop their role and increase their profile within the school even further as several of the children have been on the council before and have now been re-elected. They have already organised this year's Macmillan Coffee Morning, I have been very impressed with the ideas that they have come up with and the time that they have already dedicated to the event.
The children have said that they would like to continue to lead some worships. Their first one will be related to the Macmillan Coffee Morning. Further topics will include anti-bullying, screen time, Good to Be Me and possibly one on staying healthy.
After discussing the positions on the School Council, the children are trialling a new way of working this year. For the first two terms, the Year 6 children will take on the roles of, Chair Person, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary. The children will be shadowed by the children in Years 4 and 5, who will then take on the roles in terms three and four. This will enable the younger ones to gain invaluable experience. The Year 6 pupils will then take over for terms five and six
Once again we have a very strong School Council and I am looking forward to working with them during the year.
