School Council

July 2017

 

Exciting Trip Ahead!

 

The KS2 School Council Reps are off to visit the Houses of Parliament in a few weeks! They will have a tour and take part in a workshop about the importance of everyone having 'a voice'. They will have the opportunity to feedback to their classes about their experience!

 

Important Notice

 

We will be holding elections in September for new School Council Reps from Y2 - Y6, so please have a think about whether this is something you would like to do next year!

School Council

 

In September 2016 Bowerhill Primary School pupils elected a new school council. We meet together every Friday afternoon from 2.45 - 3.00. The school council is made up of 2 elected pupils from each year group from Y2 – Y6. Our aims are:

 

  • To improve the school by making it a friendlier and happier place.

  • To think of ways to tackle any problems that our peers may have.

  • To raise money for charity by thinking of fun activities to organise.

  • To ensure pupils in our school share their thoughts and feelings with others so we can help.

  • To develop good communication between our council meetings and our classes/year groups.

  • To promote healthy living through a healthy diet, staying active and positive mental health.  

 

We are a busy and active school council. Here are some of the things we have been working on and will be working on this year:

 

  • Fundraising events to raise money for Wiltshire Sight.
  • Planning on how to use the playground more effectively by adding areas such as a reading area.  
  • Raise the awareness of the need for recycling and looking after the environment.
  • Encourage pupils in our school to look after our school environment.
  • Provide KS2 classrooms with wet playtime equipment.
  • Raise the awareness of the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle.
  • Plan House Time topics to be discussed each week.

 

We are a friendly group of students and welcome any ideas or issues from our peers. We will do our best to help you!
