School Council

The School Council is made up of representatives from Year 2 upwards.  The School Council meets regularly and plays a positive role in school life. The elections for new School Councillors take place each September.

The website below has more information about this company.

We have also invited our chair of Governors (Mr Craig Bufton) to attend one of our meetings.

We have chosen and ordered a new PSE song book and CD for assemblies and have already started learning some of the new songs about having a positive attitude and practise.

We have e-mailed the boss of Powys Catering as some of the children at our school don’t think that ‘cheese and crackers’ is a suitable pudding to have with a school dinner.

Our response email states that cheese and crackers will soon be coming off the menu!

This year the School Council has raised money for Children in Need by selling ‘Red Noses’. The total raised was £92.50.

They raised money to purchase gardening equipment by holding a non-uniform day. The total raised was £***.

They have also re-organised our class and school awards system. We now allocate ‘house points’ throughout the year which are recorded on a board in the school hall. Each class also has a marble reward jar and there are 3 levels of awards which are different in each class. We can earn marbles for different reasons such as producing  a good piece of work, staying on task, good behaviour etc. We still have our ‘seren yr wythnos’ which is displayed in the hall.

With the money raised from the Class Two enterprise activities during the Christmas Fair, the class voted to purchase an outside table and bench set which the School Council has ordered. We look forward to doing more work outside when the weather improves. We are also hoping to get a white board to fix to the school wall which can be used with dry wipe markers and we would ideally like the area to be slabbed.

Some of our School Councillors are also  ‘Eco Warriors’. They are trying hard to keep the school eco-friendly by recycling paper, plastic and food.  They are currently planning on sowing some winter vegetable seeds which can be harvested in the autumn term to make soup.

They are all very thrilled.  Thank you to our Councillors for all the hard work they do for us!

The School Council raised £41.30 for Children In Need

This year the School Council has been keen to improve the amount of equipment available to pupils at break times and has organised fund raising to buy new equipment.  They have raised issues of equality, which have resulted in structural changes to the school building.
