School Council

We have a School Council which consists of 10 pupils; voted in by their peers. This group meets regularly throughout the year. The School Council will be working on a range of projects such as promoting all things 'eco' throughout the school, supporting with Health and Wellbeing week and our school Open Day, as well as trips out into the community. The school council also makes decisions, after consulting with their peers, about changes in our school.

 

What is the job of a School Councillor?

  • To go to School Council meetings and take part in discussions
  • To feedback to their class about what was discussed at the meetings
  • To take the ideas and views of their classmates to the Council
  • To be involved in a range of activities across the school 
  • To lead by example - always showing good behaviour to others

What have the School Council been up to?

 

Food Bank Visit 3rd October 2019

  • Packed up all of the donated food
  • Carried the 14 (very heavy!) bags to the food bank
  • Weighed each individual bag of food and then added these together to find our total weight donated – 83.1kg!
  • Children thanked for the generosity of THJS
  • The staff then explained how they sort the food (type of food and date order) and decide whether the food goes to a homeless person, single person, small family or large family
  • Children had a go at finding items suitable for each type of person/family in need
  • Staff explained the process for people in need – how they get a voucher to swap for a box of food
  • Staff explained the ‘extra treats’ that are given at Christmas and how these are being collected already

Health and Wellbeing Week:

The school council delivered a wonderful assembly, talking about the different ways children could keep their minds and bodies healthy. Each school council member had an area to focus on and every single one of them did brilliantly!

 

FIND IT BUY IT

We've had an incredible response to the 'Find It Buy It' Challenge. Your generosity will help us to improve our library and keep our love of reading alive. The School Council have been busy sorting the books today so that everyone can enjoy them!
