September 2019 - The School Council met for the first time. We learned about our role as a school councillor and discussed how we thought we could help.
Lots of us thought it was important to be representatives of our classmates and that we could be involved in helping change things and make things happen.
We looked at how to hold meetings using an agenda, taking the minutes and listening to each others ideas.
October 2019 - We collected lots of ideas from our classmates and brought them to the meeting. Each class representatives talked about what they would like. There were lots of ideas ranging from rugby pitches, fundraising, bike racks, air fresheners and fixing gates!
We needed to prioratise the ideas into 4 main proposals to take to a meeting with Mrs Lightfoot. We looked at pricing of things and practicality of what we were asking.
November 2019 - We held a meeting with Mrs Lightfoot. We took our 4 proposals to her.
1. Keys stage 2 bike racks.
2. Air fresheners for boys' toilets.
3. Key stage 2 to bring in fruit snacks for morning break.(trial)
4. Packed lunches and dinners to sit together.
We thought the meeting went very well and were able to answer Mrs Lightfoot's questions about costings, where to put things, how things will work etc. We put up strong arguments for the proposals and we were very happy that Mrs Lightfoot agreed to all of our proposals. We will monitor the dinner hall to see if it is successful or not.
December 2109 - As School Council representatives we were asked to meet with the School Governors. We were able to explain our role to them and also what we have achieved his year so far. We were quite nervous and some of us thought we were actually going to see the Government! They said we were doing a great job!
Hebburn Helps - we chose to support the local charity during Advent. We shared with our classmates the idea of creating a hamper for families who are less fortunate than us. We discussed appropriate items that families might need during Christmas to make meals etc During the week 9th-13th Dec each class made up their own hamper. We were really happy that we were able to help others. The year 5 representatives also included a lovely letter with their hamper.
January 2010 - We held our first meeting of the year. Each year brought to the meeting items for the agenda that had been discussed in their classes.
Year 6 - 'Buddy Table' at a dinner time.
Year 5 - Riding scooters in yard.
Year 4 - Football only areas/mugger.
Year 3 - A stage rota. Reading Shed.
Year 2 - Also a stage rota.
We discussed together how to and who to see to resolve the issues. Riding scooters was deemed unsafe after discussion.
Mrs Raine also informed us of how the school council will be involved with Lent this year. We will meet again next week to make posters and write a report for the newsletter.
