Our School Council is comprised of a boy and girl from each class elected by their peers which allows pupils to express their opinion using a democratic vote. School Council is a place for all year groups to come together and discuss our vision for the academic year. The role of each delegate is to provide a voice for their peers and to strive to make St. Stephen's an even better place.

Today we had a lovely meeting in the winter sun which was a great way to start the day. Year Four were unable to join us as they had a problem solving workshop with Thrill Education so they can hardly be blamed! We discussed our upcoming collection for Beyond the Bow and discussed School Council’s role in our ‘Red Card to Racism’ day due to take place next Friday. School Council will be in charge of the collection for the charity of the same name at the beginning of the day. Following this, we discussed any upcoming significant dates as we dive into one of the busiest months of the school year. We will meet briefly next week to have a little chat about the Red Card to Racism collection again.

It was wonderful to see School Council today for our first meeting after term. We opened our meeting with a quick chat about the progress of our Beyond the Bow collection which is due on December 6th. Following on from this, we discussed how break times and lunch times were getting on and what we could do to make them better. We had some fantastic suggestions from all members of the council so it would be great to see how these ideas will progress over the academic year. We finished off with doling out some tasks and I’m happy to say we had plenty of volunteers to create posters advertising the Beyond the Bow collection. Our next meeting will be on in the week beginning the 18th November.

Today, we held our first School Council meeting of the year. We discussed what our main objective would be for this term and how School Council members are meant to be examples of sensible, friendly and polite behaviour in order for their peers to feel that they can approach them with their suggestions. We also discussed School Council’s role in the Beyond the Bow charity collaboration this December. The job of our delegates will be to promote the collection of presents for children aged 2 to 16 years old in our local community.
