The School Council reps have had a very busy term - here are some of their achievements so far....
- placing an order for school council hoodies for all reps.
- designing and making posters to advertise the Children in Need cake sale.
- organising and running the cake sale for Children in Need.
- attending and contributing at our Shared Vision staff meeting after school.
The school council now meet every Thursday afternoon with Mrs Evans. Over the last few weeks they have been discussing the positive changes that have been made at lunchtimes.The school council have shared their thoughts and views at meetings but also wanted the thoughts and views of everyone in school so they planned and produced a lunchtime questionnaire for all pupils to complete this was distributed last week by council reps and collected in for today's meeting.Today they read through them and collated the information - this is what they found: The majority of children enjoy lunchtimes and the changes that have been made.Here are a few quotes from the questionnaires: "I think it is really good because there is more equipment and things to do" "Tennis is super fun for everyone but more football" "Thank you for the activities " "Clean all the playground less mud more grass!" "Music in the dining hall" The school council would like to thank everyone for completing the questionnaires and to the dinner ladies for all they do at lunchtimes. This will be discussed more at the next meeting.
The main item on our agenda today was how to Report Back after a meeting all children were given a handout to give to their class teacher. Reporting back needs to be done as soon as possible after a meeting.The school council belongs to everyone,so they all have a right to know what happens in meetings and they want to know when we discuss the things they have asked it to.
