Student Council Meeting example 06/03/19


No suggestions or worries in the Suggestions and Worry boxes.


The chdn think there needs to be a reminder in assemblies about the suggestion/worry boxes.

Mrs Blackwell to send email to all class teachers to remind their class about the boxes.

The chdn would like a second set of boxes in a location near KS1.


Crazy Hair Day was a success!  The chdn really enjoyed organising it.  Over £200 was raised which means the SC budget is £521.18.

The chdn would like to order the bench now and see if it is used frequently. If it is used lots, they would like to order a second one with the extra money raised.


Focus this half term is colouring competition/quiz in the run up to Easter.  The winner could be revealed in the assembly before we break up.

Suggestion of an Easter as a prizes. Separate winners for KS1 and 2.

Unanimous for colouring and quiz in each key stage.


Concerns about preventing cheating on the quiz (do we allow the quizzes to be taken home or should it be a lunchtime quiz)?
