School Council

Oakhill Primary School Council
     

Oakhill Primary School council is a pupil group made up of 14 children from year 6. Children on the school council are elected by their peers and meet together to discuss issues that their classmates have raised with them. They then make suggestions about how things can be improved or changed. Further down this page you will find an update of what the School Council has done during each half term as well as some photos.

Autumn 1

Our first meeting was held Friday 12th October. At this meeting we discussed what it meant to be a member of School Council, what is expected of us and some of the tasks we will complete over the year. We agreed to start the year by getting the views of the all of the children in school - to do this we are going do a survey with each class to find out what our peers like and dislike about school so that we can consider what we can do about it. 3 of us (Freya, Louis G and Nicole) went to the Local Democracy Event at the Kings Hall. Here we learned more about what our City Council does and gave our own ideas for how to make our city a better place; we then fed this back to our own School Council and Mrs Leach and Mr Smith. We also got to visit the Council chambers and even met the Lord Mayor!

Autumn 1

This half term we have held our first meeting together and found it what it means to be on a School Council. We have been to a'Local Democracy' event at the Kings Hall where we met with city councillors, found out what the city council is doing, found out more about how democracy works and even saw the Council Chamber and Lord Mayor's Parlour (see photos at the bottom of the page!) 3 of us also got to interview candidates who want to work at our school! We formed our own questions and asked them to each candidate before feeding back to Mrs Simpson! Finally, for this half term, we are going to work with Mrs Rhodes to look around our school and write risk assessments to help keep our friends safe!

 

Autumn 2

This half term we have continued to meet with Mrs Leach and Mr Smith in order to look into more great plans for the school. Most excitingly, we now have our Jungle Gym on the playground! We have also decided what we are going to fund raise for next - we spoke to all of the children in the school and took votes - this year we are raising money for gym equipment on the playground. We have begun to plan lots of fund raising events for the rest of the year with the main event being a sponsored sports event to take place in Spring term.

 

Spring 1 and 2

This term we have been busy finalising our plans for our sponsored event. We plan to do a sponsored sports event in which every pupil in the school will take part in a range of sporting competitions over the day. We hope that people will sponsor each pupil to try and be the highest scoring pupil in their class, their key stage or even the whole school. We plan to get some great prizes too! Some of the events will include football, netball, golf, tennis and a jungle gym challenge! We have also discussed what we can do to reduce the amount of litter on the playground and launched a poster competition across the whole school.

 

Summer 1

This half term we held the first ever Oakhill Games! It was an absolutely fantastic event that raised over £1600 to put towards our new gym equipment for the playground. Every single child in school took part and it was brilliant fun! Videos showing the event can be found on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pg/Oakhill-Primary-School-156183321491956/videos/?ref=page_internal) - please watch them! We have also had a meeting about keeping our school tidy both inside and out. Next half term some of us are going to be interviewing some people who have applied for a job at our school - watch this space to see how it goes!
