The School Council is overseen by Miss O'Sullivan.
 
At Christ the King we recognise the importance of listening to the ‘children’s voice’. The School Council plays an important role in terms of the children’s contribution to the life of the school, their experience of a democratic process and the contribution it plays to their Personal, Social and Citizenship Education.
Who are our School Council members for 2017-18?
On Tuesday 14th November, the School Council organsied a Children In Need Bake Off cake sale in order to raise money.  We organised, judged and sold the cakes after school in the school hall. We gave each of our three winners a £10 Smyths toy voucher and have managed to raise over £600 for Children In Need! Congratulations to our winners in the picture above: Evie, Jackson and Tia.

What did we discuss in our last meeting?

School Council Meeting: 10.10.17

Members present: Patrick, Tom, Lola, Elysia, Korbin, Calum, Sophia, Jensen, Hayla, Poppy

Issues discussed:

  • Children in Need fundraising – all members would like to do a cake sale like last year (Bake off).
  • Discussed the idea of setting up a shop at break time selling healthy snacks.
  • Mrs Fitt discussed the idea of helping a charity (Women’s Refuge) and collecting items for Christmas in order to help the charity. School Council members liked the idea of this and are keen to help.

Actions to happen from the meeting:

  • Arrange an assembly where somebody comes in from the Women’s Refuge to describe what the charity does and School Council to arrange an assembly explaining what items we would like to collect for Christmas.
  • Miss O’Sullivan to speak with Mrs Tickel about setting up a shop selling healthy snacks.
  • Miss O’Sullivan to order all members School Council badges and present them in assembly.
What is our next project?
This Christmas, the School Council would like to support the Women's Refuge Charity. We organised for two local representatives from the charity to come in and explain in assembly what the purpose of the charity is. Letters should have gone home to every class explaining what we would like you to bring in, but if you have lost yours, you can see in the table below what we would like each year group to donate.
