Our School Council consists of two children per class from Year 1 upwards. They are voted for in a democratic ballot and attend regular meetings. The council in turn, vote two members to ‘chair’ the meetings whilst Mrs Charles, Ms Waldron and Mrs Edwards are in support.
School Council had a busy time last year…….
- We organised several charity fund-raising events: Children In Need, Christmas Jumper Day, a mile walk for Sport Relief and NSPCC fundraising.
- We visited the Houses of Parliament.
- With our Trust schools we successfully planned and launched the School Beach Hut project.
- We welcomed MP John Penrose to one of our council meetings so we could find out about his role as an MP and discussed topical issues.
This year is going to be just as busy…..
So far, we have decided more fantastic fundraising activities for Children in Need and Red Nose Day, we have another trip planned to the Houses of Parliament and a trip to North Somerset Court House.
We are planning to arrange some more interesting events, fundraising opportunities and further joint activities with our other Trust schools. Look at our School Council minutes online and check out our noticeboard outside the Main Hall for future news and events.
