This year for the first time the School Council has had a student Chairperson and Secretary to run their own student council meetings, and this year’s reps have been full of ideas and enthusiasm.

The School Council has been working hard this year on a number of projects:

  • Fundraising for a variety of charities – the Council has held events for Jeans for Genes, Children in Need, Text Santa, Sport Relief and Dreamflights. We will have raised over £2000 for charity by the end of the school year!
  • Improving the school playground – we completed a class survey and fed the results back to our Income Generator Maz for ideas of what we would like to have on the playground.
  • Cake Stalls and Sweet Stalls – the Council has run stalls at Parents Evenings and the school discos so everyone gets a lovely treat!
  •  The Scholastic Book Fair – the School Council identified that we needed some new books in the school library.  The Council did a great job of running the Book Fair and it was very successful, gaining us nearly £200 of new books for the library.
  • End of Year Celebration afternoon – the Council are planning an afternoon of fun activities for everyone at the end of the summer term… details out soon!
