Rowland Hill School Council
In February 2022 Rowland Hill started our first school council. The council is made up of 20 children who act as representatives to their friends in discussing school issues with the Executive Headteacher Sian, Senior Teacher Max and the whole staff team. It’s a brilliant way of our children representing and contributing to the school.
The children this year will be focusing on how to make the school more sustainable for the future. It will take on projects that support the children’s learning and development, such as organising charity events, representing the school at outside events or ensuring the school is environmentally sustainable.
The school council will do a number of things:
- Meet with a teacher (Max) present to discuss and sort out problems. These could include learning environment and garden, school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events or family get togethers.
- Be responsible for carrying out the ideas to make the school more sustainable for the future
- each member’s family are expected to help them participate in the council by thinking about some of the big issues at home before they come to the council meeting.
Over the coming months Max, our senior teacher, will be updating our website with the minutes of the council and agreed actions.
Over the half term holiday we are inviting all children to play Sustainability Bingo, where families complete challenges throughout their everyday activities and tick them off the grid until you get a complete line of 4. Don’t forget when you complete your challenge, you have to shout BINGO! We can’t wait to hear about all the fun you’ve had playing over the holiday. Click here for the bingo sheet
