Hello and Welcome to our School Council page

 

 

What is a School Council?

We value the opinions of our pupils and the School Council gives pupils a forum to share these opinions with others.

A new school council is elected each year, with every class from Year 1 to Year 6 nominating a representative, they are then given a badge so that everyone is aware of who the members of the council are. These children are responsible for listening to the ideas and concerns of their classmates. Each representative has a special class book to write in and they bring this with them to every school council meeting to be discussed. Usually, the School Council try to meet at least once a month with Miss Sheehan to share ideas and organise events.. The school council display board can be found outside the ICT suite. Here you can find the minutes of our meetings and details of projects the school council are working on

Hair-Raisers

To support The Nightingale Cancer Support Centre, we became Hair-Raisers for the day. On Friday the 17th of June, staff and students came to school, showing off their hair how they love it most. There were impressive up-dos, crazy colours and plenty of accessories to be seen!

  

Biker's Breakfast

To celebrate Bike Week, the School Council organised a Biker’s Breakfast on Friday 10th June. Anyone who cycled or scooted to school that morning was given a ticket to come and have a free breakfast. Children could choose from fresh fruit, yoghurts and fruit bars as well as getting a refreshing cup of either orange or apple juice. The morning was a great success, with everyone refuelled and ready for their day!To celebrate Bike Week, the School Council organised a Biker’s Breakfast on Friday 10th June.

Road Safety

Our first important initiative of the year was raising road safety awareness for adults and children coming to school. We undertook a road safety walk to identify safe places our adults could park and discussed how to cross the road safely. Each member then designed a poster sharing this information. We laminated them all and hung them on our gates for everyone to see. We also designed leaflets that we gave to our classmates to take home and read.

We also organised Road Safety Week. We held an assembly with the junior classes to speak to them about how to stay safe when travelling on roads. Classes also designed some posters and leaflets to create a display to pass the message on further.

 

 

SPOTACULAR

Our first big event of the year was BBC Spotacular for Children in Need. We discussed ideas at council meetings which we then put to a vote. We ended up holding a ‘Pyjama Day’ for the whole school. Students and staff all came to school dressed in their pyjamas. We also held a Pudsey drawing competition. There were so many amazing entries, the judges struggled to pick just one winner from KS1 and KS2 each.

On January 21st we held a ‘Bling Your Bike/ Sparkle Your Scooter’ day. We were so impressed by the creativity of all the children across the school. In the afternoon, we had the chance to parade our bikes and scooters around the playground for everyone to admire. The School Council had a very tough job deciding on 2 children to give prizes to. Well done everyone!

On Wednesday 16th March 2022 we were visited by Hilary from Sustrans and

After, they met with our School Council members to find out more about what St Mary’s do for active travel. They gave each member a pin to show they are a JTA (Junior Travel Ambassador) and some prizes to support our Golden Lock initiative.
