The School Council is made up of two children from every class (Nursery – Year 2). They are democratically elected each September. We meet on Fridays in the library at least every 3 weeks with Mrs Jennings to discuss ideas for our school community. We also have Class Council time with our class to talk about and collect the ideas of our classmates. We bring these notes to each School Council meeting.
Our School Council is very important to our school and to celebrate this, we have presented all our School Councillors with a badge to show they are good role models for all at Mousehold.
So far this year we have:
- Discussed where to put our new Friendship bench that last year’s School Council raised money for and talked about how we should use it.
- Met with our school cook Mrs Horth to tell her what we like about our school dinners and what we would like included in future menus to feedback to Norse catering who provide our lunches.
- Organised a Christmas Bags of Sugar collection for the charity BEFA ‘Sugar for Shelters’ initiative to help the homeless, needy and vulnerable in Norfolk and Suffolk.
The School Council is the voice of all children at our school. We really aim to help improve our school by working as a team.
