This year's School Council

Our School Council consists of a representative from each class from Year 1 to Year 6.  School Council reps are voted in by each class at the start of the year.  Anyone can stand for election - just design a poster and speak to your class about why you'd like to be their representative on the School Council.  We meet each month with Mrs Jähnigen to discuss ideas to make our school an even better place. We take questions back to class for class council discussions. We also plan special days and weeks at school (such as Anti Bullying Week, Healthy Lifestyle Week, World Book Day and fundraising events). 
Here are photos of the current School Council. Can you spot the representative for your class?
This year School Council have chosen to focus on the important matter of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. With the money raised during fundraising efforts, we have purchased books about the topic which are free for all children and teachers to read and use. They can be found in the entrance hall. 
School Council were busy preparing World Book Day 2019. We made flyers and organised all activities for the day, including a second hand book stall at playtime. Thanks so much for all the wonderful book donations. We raised nearly £50!!! Seeing lots of children clutching their book purchases with such joy was priceless. 
We have been busy supporting Anti Bullying Week with various activities. We came up with the idea of a kindness box which we gave to each class to note down any acts of kindness and respect. Our tree of kindness and respect in the entrance hall keeps filling with positive messages. Of course, we also got some friends together to develop two Wake Up Shake Up routines to 'Unique' and 'Choose Respect', songs for Anti Bullying week by Andy and the Oddsocks. What a great week it was!
