Thomas Harding Junior School

Student Leadership Team


We are lucky enough to have a Student Leadership Committee which consists of 16 pupils; voted in by their peers. This group meets regularly throughout the year. The  Student Leaders 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 SLT also makes decisions, after consulting with their peers, about changes in our school.


What is the job of a Student leader?

  • To go to Student Leadership Team 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 Team
  • To be involved in a range of activities across the school 
  • To lead by example - always showing good behaviour to others

Food Bank Visit - 1st October 2021

  • Packed up all of the donated food
  • Weighed each individual bag of food and then added these together to find our total weight donated – 65.1kg!
  • 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


Harvest Festival - Chesham Food Bank Visit

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!



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!
