School Council Meeting 1: Meet the Members- October 2021
All of the new school council members met to introduce each other, discuss the importance of their role in school and to receive their new badges. The children shared why they had nominated themselves and what qualities they thought they would bring to the role.
During this meeting, the children worked in pairs to discuss questions which could be included in Term 2's School Council Assemblies. They came up with some very thought- provoking and creative questions to highlight our school values (Creativity, Sense of Belonging, Personal Responsibility). Some members even continued to generate questions in their lunch breaks to ensure we had a huge bank of questions to choose from.
We also talked about how school council members had the job of leading school council assemblies in most years and how they would encourage good oracy skills and a sense of mutual respect in their classes.
School Council Meeting 2: Fundraising ideas for the year- November 2021
School Council met to mind map fundraising ideas they would like to try this year (COVID dependent). With Children in Need fast approaching, the members collated ideas and voted on their favourite options. Of all of the aspects of Children in Need, School Council were most concerned with how many children did not have a safe home to live in or a roof over their head at all.
The Council decided to invite children to school to in pyjamas for the day and set children a shelter building challenge (see School Council Events page).
As an additional element to their fundraising, the members also asked if they could arrange a toy drive, collecting good condition toys to send to local families in need.
