School Council 2016-17

St. Mary’s School Council consists of two children from each class from Year 1 to Year 6, who have been chosen to represent their class by their classmates. Their job is to listen to the views and ideas of their classmates and discuss any suggestions at School Council meetings.

They meet regularly to share ideas for an even better school, and to sort out any problems. These may include school lunches, organising extra curricular activities, ‘collapse the curriculum’ days or ideas for charity and fundraising events.

Meet our new, eager and enthusiastic members of School Council for 2016-2017:

Have a look at our action plan for the Autumn term: action-plan-autumn-2016


Children in Need – Friday 18th November

Children in Need at St. Mary’s was a great success this year, thanks to the excellent efforts from School Council. Throughout the week of Children in Need, School Council sold wristbands and Pudsey keyrings. We encouraged children from all classes to come to school dressed in spots in exchange for a donation, and we placed our donations on our very own painted version of Pudsey. In total, we raised an incredible £353.58. Thank you St. Mary’s, you have helped make a difference to lots of children in the UK!




The theme this year was ‘Do Your Own Thing’ so we asked children to choose ‘their thing’ to take part in during Golden Time.

Some of us chose to accept some challenges in our ‘games room’:

Some completed Children in Need related arts and crafts:

Many of us took part in a competitive game of football:

Lots of us put our baking and decorating skills to the test by working in groups to bake and decorate some gorgeous Children in Need treats. The hall was buzzing with a fantastic ‘St. Mary’s Bake Off’ atmosphere!


Christmas Jumper Day – Friday 16th December

School Council like to ensure our school does our bit for charity so we jumped at the chance to wear a festive outfit to help raise money for Save the Children. Well done St. Mary’s, we raised £120.72 to help those less fortunate than us.
