No Limits, Only Possibilities
West Hill School Council
What Is School Council?
A school council is forward thinking group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.
What Do We Do?
A school council does a number of things:
- The school council meets – with a teacher present – to discuss ways to improve our school. These may include discussing the school improvement plan, lessons, school values, school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
- Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning events.
Each class elects one school councillor who represents their peers for a year. The children elected to the school council have to take on various roles. They meet regularly with the Assistant Head Teacher responsible for Pupil Voice (Mrs Davenport) and discuss issues that affect the school.
After voting for different charities and discussing how they help people, School Council have decided to help support:
The School Council have joined forces with the Eco-Warriors to raise money for the Australian Bush Fire Disaster Relief. They collected spare change during drop off and pick up, held a games afternoon and sold plants. They managed to raise a MASSIVE £801.05.
This year the school council decided to support We Are Beams. Throughout the year many events took places such as selling ice lollies, photo booth and guess how many baubles in a jar. In total they raised £578.19. They also choose to support Battersea Cats and dogs home.
Shoe Boxes for Battersea Cats and Dogs Home
The School Council would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to all our children and families for helping us support Battersea Cats and Dogs home. We have been totally overwhelmed with your support and have a total of 119 boxes! The effort that you all went to was outstanding and has blown us away.
