The School Council is a group of pupils that regularly meet to discuss important issues. They represent the classes in the school when they meet Jose. They are the “pupil voice” of the school.
The School Council also organises fund raising events and projects that improve our school environment.
They have been doing this for some time and sometimes they are rewarded for their good work:
“We did fundraising to raise money for Red Nose Day for people in need. We did biscuit decorating, design your own red nose and pin the red nose on Jose! All the children donated £1 to join in. We entered our project ideas into the School Council Awards. We are really proud of the badge we now have on our website to show what we achieved.”
If you want to help improve our school, why not be your class representative? Or you could tell your School Council Representative what you think and ask them to report back.
What do School Representatives say about their role?
“We liked getting ideas from the children in our classes about how to make the school better.”
“We liked doing the different events that everyone could participate in and enjoy.”
“The children in our classes wanted new equipment in the playground. They voted and we asked Jose to order it for us.”
