Welcome to St Aidan's School Council page
What is the School Council?
The school council works to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at St Aidan's. We look around for things that could be better and discuss what to do. Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things. Sometimes we have to talk to teachers and sometimes we have to make phone calls to people outside of the school.
Who are the School Councillors?
Every year we hold a class election to vote for two new representatives from each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings and be an advocate for the whole community.
This year our school council have been reminding our classmates and community about littering, recycling and taking care of our rubbish so that it doesn't affect our environment negatively. We have also suggested new ideas for playground equipment and passed these to Mrs Baron our PE Leader.
This Autumn term, we have thought about how to help our community and the wider world. We have collected food for the local larder and have raised money for charities with our 'Change for Charity bottle' which will contribute to a clean, water pump for villages in Africa through Christian Aid, during RE creative week.
Councillors have shared ideas for school improvements. Pupils would like to develop the library area into a more relaxing and calming environment. They discussed with their classmates about fundraising ideas.
They held a bring and buy cake sale which raised £130.00
We held our annual hustings a little earlier than expected due to some of our councillors moving away. We invited pupils to propose themselves and then voted democratically for our new councillors, who were presented with their badges at Friday Celebration Assembly 28/4/23. Congratulations!
