Oakhill Primary School council is a pupil group made up of four children from years 4 and 5 and six children from year 6. Children on the school council are elected by their class mates 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.

This half term our main focus is on fund raising for more equipment for our school playground. We are going to work with the school council members from the other 'Stoke 6' schools to generate ideas and support each other to make as much money as possible. We are also holding regular meetings with our new kitchen manager to give suggestions and ideas to improve the food at our school. We are going to a 'Local Democracy' event at the Kings Hall where we will meet with city councillors, find out what the city council is doing, find out more about how democracy works and even see the Council Chamber and Lord Mayor's Parlour (photos to follow!)
This half term we have continued working on our fundraising for the playground. We now have over £1500! We have again met with the school kitchen manager and together we have decided on different themed food days for each month. We have also developed questionnaires to find out what pupils think of our school and have made sure that all classes complete these. We have begun to plan an exciting whole-school fundraising event too - more on this next half term!
We have had a very busy half term! We have been to the Willows Primary School to share our fundraising event - the Disney Step Challenge! The whole school are going to dress up as Disney characters and then between us we are going to use gym steps to do enough steps to get us to Disneyland! We are all going to be sponsored for this and then we will put the money towards the playground equipment (for which we already have over £2500!) We have also been working on making sure that people keep Rookery Lane clean (especially dog owners!) Next half term we are going to meet our local City Councillor!
We have had another fantastic half term! We did the Disney Step Challenge! The whole school dressed up as Disney characters and between us we did enough steps to get us to Disneyland! We now have over £5000 for the playground! Some of met with our local City Councillor and got to ask her lots of questions about what it means to be a councillor. Some of have even been in the local newspaper to make the public more aware of the need to keep Rookery Lane clean of dog mess!
Although this has only been a short half term, we have been extremely busy once again! We have planned an assembly to feedback the results of our pupil survey to all of the pupils and have come up with even more fabulous fundraising ideas. Most excitingly though, some of us got to interview candidates who have applied to work at our school! We had to come up with some interesting questions to ask them and then interviewed each of the candidates one at a time. We did a great job and helped the school to pick 2 new amazing teachers!
