Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community. It is made up of two elected representatives from each class. The council meets every Monday during term time to discuss issues raised in their class councils meeting and to give the children an opportunity to share their ideas about proposed improvements to the school. The Council makes a valuable contribution towards the continued success of Squirrels Heath Junior School.
With the help of the school council, the children of School Heath Junior School have raised money for many charities including WWF, Cancer Research and Brain Tumour.
Last year, we set up a healthy snack stall which is run by the school council every Friday. Fruit Juice is 30p and piece of fruit 20p. The money raised so far is just over £1,000.00. In class meetings every pupil has a say in how the money is spent in the school. So far we have games and magazine box for the playground.
Why are we doing this?
- Pupils learn valuable life skills.
- It brings the whole school community together.
- Our pupils can really make a difference to their education.
- Learn how to plan and budget.
