Who are the School Council?
Below is a photo of our school council for the academic year 2017-18. Each class across the whole school is represented on our school council and the children were democratically voted for by their peers within their classes.
What have they been doing?
So far this academic year the school council have been involved in various different activities. After our school harvest donation to the Hinckley area food bank back in the Autumn term these children visited the food bank in order to see how the food donations were organised and distributed to those in need. Following on from this they organised and made reverse advent calendars for each class, which allowed us to donate 12 completed calendars full of products required by the food bank at Christmas time.
The school council also worked hard to decide on a further charity for us to support this year. Each member made suggestions and explained their reasons for their chosen charity. We then voted on which charity to support and the winner was Wishes for Kids. We are therefore looking to organise some fund raising to support this charity in the summer term. If you have any ideas or would like to get involved in any way then please speak to me or any one of the school council.
A few weeks ago the school council took part in some activities based around democracy with someone from Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council.
What else will we be doing?
Before the end of this academic year we will be arranging some fund raising activities for our chosen charity Wishes for Kids. We are also hoping to support the Scarecrow Festival by providing children and staff with some types and ideas for their scarecrows.

Fundraising for Wishes 4 Kids - July 2018
In order to launch our fund raising efforts we organised a whole school assembly where the children from the school council shared information they had researched about the charity. We were also joined by the Wishes 4 Kids charity manager Gary and their mascot Russ! Many thanks also to Mr Percival for sharing his own experiences of the charity.
We are really proud to have raised just over £500 through the sale of biscuits and the children paying to not wear uniform for the day. Well done to everyone on the school council.
