Who are the School Council?
Below is a photo of our school council for the academic year 2018-19. 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.
After our whole school harvest donation to the Hinckley area food bank the school council organised for each class to complete a reverse advent calendar to further support this charity. We had a messy but fun after school session making the calendars and then the children organised for each class to ensure they would be filled by asking everyone to donate a suitable item throughout Advent. These completed calendar donations were collected by the food bank just before we broke up for the holiday and we are really proud of what we achieved. Thanks to the parents who helped with the after school session and to everybody who donated.
The junior members of the school council also presented an assembly to the whole school on Children in Need and helped to organise some of the fund raising. This involved lots of practise in school but also time spent at home researching information and rehearsing lines so well done to you all. We raised an amazing £756.53 across the school.
What will we be doing in the Spring term?
Our main job for this term will be to decide on the charity that we would like to fund raise for in the Summer term. I will be asking all school council members to consider the charity they would most like to support and to be able to explain why. We will then vote for the chosen charity and begin to think about fund raising ideas.
We will also be involved in organising fund raising for Red Nose Day on March 15th.
