WE HAVE OUR SAY
Welcome to the Pupil Council Page!
The Pupil Council are delighted to welcome you to their website page. We hope you find the information on this page helpful and informative. We are always busy, and hope you enjoy reading about and seeing photographs of some of the great things we do!
All classes have a pupil representative on the Pupil Council. They are responsible for gathering the opinions and views of their class and sharing them as part of the discussion at pupil council meetings. This ensures that all children in the school have a voice.
The Election Process
Each member of the pupil council has been elected by the pupils within their own class. At the start of every school year a secret ballot takes place in class. Each candidate delivers a campaign speech and everyone in their class ticks the box next to the candidate of their choice. Votes are placed in the ballot box and counted by the class teacher.
Things We Have Done
The pupil council wanted to do something nice for the community. We have set a whole school art competition. We have asked each pupil to produce a quality piece of art. The best three pieces will be chosen by their class and judged by the pupil council. The Pupil Council will chose a winner from each class which will be framed and given to the residents of a local care home to brighten up the rooms of the elderly.
We held another whole school competition for world poetry day on the 21st March. We asked each pupil to produce a piece of poetry which was judged by the pupil council.
The Pupil Council enjoy fundraising for various charities. This year we have raised £1161.44 for Children in Need. We organised a ‘crazy hair day’ which was a great success. We also sold wristbands and had a ‘guess Pudsey’s birthday’ competition.
We have raised a total of £776.56 for Childhood Cancer week by holding ’mis match’ day and selling cakes and last Rolos at our home baking stall. We would like to thank everyone for your kind donations of cakes and other home baking. A special thanks to Emily North’s dad for donating a box of Nestle Rolo for us to use for our ‘last Rolo sale. What a generous contribution. We could not hold these events without the on-going support from parents and we are grateful for this.
