This term we started having our meetings at the beginning of a Friday morning. We have put forward ideas about a vegetable garden for the school and a tech Dec competition one lunchtime. We have also talked about raising money with a fancy dress fun run to help people in countries without enough water.
During this term we met with Mr Perry about saving energy across the school. One of our reps helped to design an energy saving poster to put across the school. We also planted a royal oak tree in our Forest School.
AYCLIFFE SCHOOL COUNCIL
At Aycliffe Drive we wish for our pupils to be able to make a contribution to the school as a whole and have a forum to air their thoughts and suggestions. To this effect we have set up the school council. This group consists of two elected students from each class, one girl and one boy and led by Miss Phillips. There is a link Governor attached to the school council who also attends the meetings. The children meet once a month on a Friday morning and are encouraged to put forward suggestions and ideas from their perspective. Minutes are taken and Miss Phillips then takes any necessary action. The student representatives then feed any outcomes back to pupils.
Some of the changes the school council has been able to make have been on recycling in school, ideas for charity events and feeding back on the Pupil Choice dinner system.
