(Wellbeing, Eco and Charitable Fundraising)
Where STARS Shine!
School Council: What do we want to achieve?
- Support and raise awareness of Mental Health and Wellbeing across the school
- Lead events to support charities
- Lead the school in becoming Eco friendly
This year (2023-2024) our School Council has grown to enable us to manage different initiatives we would like to put in place and embed within school. Each of the key areas will be led by our Year 6 council members and incorporate representatives from each year group. This will enable us to set high expectations, take the lead in initiatives with guidance from Mrs Golledge and achieve more for the children we represent.
As part of our role in school, School Council represent the following Rights Respecting Articles:
