The school council was set up as a way to ensure that children at Churchend get to have a say about what happens at the school. Mr Seymour consults them regularly about all sorts of things.They tell him about the things that they think work well, the things that could be improved and any particular issues that concern children in their class.
The School Council has 5 committee members, Chairperson, Vice-chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Press Officer. These children will be from Year 6 and they work with Mrs Greggan to plan and organise the meetings. Each class elects 2 reps at the beginning of the school year.The School Council meet together to raise issues, respond to school requests and organise fundraising and charity events. Each member of the school council takes time to talk to their classmates about any item that needs to go on the agenda. Sometimes Mr Seymour will ask the school council to go and find out what the children in each class think about an idea he might have.
If you have an idea, a worry or a possible improvement that you think the school should consider, do speak to your class rep.They want to hear your views!
Macmillan Cake Sale
A huge well done to the School Council for hosting a cake sale for Macmillan Cancer Support! The Committee members introduced the event in an assembly and prepared an email to be sent home to parents and carers. Reps from Years 4-6 ran the stalls and promoted this great cause. We have now raised over £600 for this amazing cause which is £200 over our target! Thank you to the School Council and all the generous members of our Churchend community.
