Our first School Council meeting

Today we had our first official School Council meeting and we agreed on certain roles within the team.

We now have the following roles:

  • Group Lead
  • Deputy Group Lead
  • Secetary
  • Treasurer
  • Social Media Lead
  • Communications Lead
  • Events Lead

The children chosen for these roles will have the responsibility for half the academic year and then we will give other children in the team an opportunity.

Our first project will be part of our ‘All-Together Anti-bullying’ programme and the team will be looking at fundraising ideas and action plans for raising money to buy bright blue hoodies that they will wear to identify them as anti-bullying ambassadors. All School Council members will have a personalised training day to become an anti-bullying ambassador for the school.

The team have also agreed that they would still like to paint the shed on the playground as this is looking very tired!img_2029.jpg

Meet our team…

Today we announced our new school council team members during our weekly celebration assembly. Each class has two representatives. At the moment two of our members are unable to appear on the blog. Children will be able to keep up to date with school council projects on our school council notice board and updates will be posted on here regularly. Thank you to all those children who prepared and delivered a speech and huge congratulations to our new representatives chosen by their peers.

School Council Launch

On Monday 11th September during our weekly assembly, Mrs Robbs launched the plans for the school council this year. Children can nominate themselves and if they feel they have the right skills and attributes to be a member of the school council, they will have to write and deliver a speech to class members on Thursday 14th September. On Tuesday 19th September, children will have an opportunity to vote for two council members per class. Voting results will then be announced during an assembly. Mrs Robbs is very excited about the year ahead and working on the agreed projects. Being a school council member is  an ideal opportunity for children to be involved in some of the ways a school is run. The results will also be announced on here. Watch this space!

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

Leaving a print…

This morning our year 6 school council members placed a hand print on the wall in the lunchtime club room, leaving a print before they depart Broadmeadow Junior School and move onto secondary school. All other school council members will leave their hand print during the first few days in September. The room is looking a lot brighter and will hopefully be enjoyed by children during the next academic year.

Time to paint…

Today all of our school council members changed into their ‘work’ clothes and they worked really hard to paint the hut that we use for our lunchtime club. The children chose the colour of the paint and ordered all of the materials needed for painting. Years 3 and 4 started first thing this morning and completed the main wall. Years 5 and 6 took over after break and finished off the side walls. The room is now looking very calming and will soon be ready to enjoy. Some time will now be spent tidying up and organisng the resources in the room ready for the new academic year in September. Thank you to all school council members. You did a fantastic job and the room looks great. And thank you to Mr Henry for supervising and helping with the cutting in of the more intricate areas!

Anti-Bullying Workshops – Year 6 Role Play

I would like to say a huge thank you to our year 6 school council members for their amazing contributions in preparing for and taking part in the anti-bullying workshops. The role play scenarios were fantastic and they performed really well. The commitment and enthusiasm to take part was really appreciated and made the workshops even more worthwhile. The children should be proud of themselves because I certainly was!All together anti-bullying

The school council have met twice so far this half term. We have newly elected roles, such as a chair person, promotions officer and communications officer. We have drawn up a set of rules for all council members and these will be shared soon. Our current project is preparing to paint the lunchtime club hut. Council members have been looking at resources needed and purchase costs. We plan to start painting after half term.
