Ellison Boulters' School Council 2016/17
An update from your School Council
We have met with our School Council governor, Mr Heafield, to discuss hot school meals as the governors were keen to find out what the pupils think about the hot school meals we have - especially because quite a lot of children have hot school meals regularly. We then created a hot school meal survey and took this to our classes to discuss and complete. We met again with Mr Heafield and he was keen to find out what the children had said.
This year, some of the older members of School Council were given the important job of interviewing candidates as the school were looking to appoint new staff. We asked the candidates 3 different questions and noted what they said. It was interesting to interview someone like you are a grown up and it helped us to find out if the interviewees appealed to us as children and pupils of Ellison Boulters.
We will continue to look at ways of demonstrating our Church School values in action. We are keen to continue our support for the community and the wider world through our fund raising. We would like to meet again with the governors and to work with them on areas they would like developing or exploring from the pupils’ point of view for the benefit of Ellison Boulters.
We are thinking about hand-over to the next Ellison Boulters' School Council; we have been invited to apply to be part of the School Council as an additional experienced councillor. As there are two spaces, we have been to write a letter of application.
We have had a busy time in School Council so far and have lots of things planned for this year.
We have had lots of positives to report on following our time spent observing our classmates playing and talking to them about how they have settled back to school after the Summer holidays.
One of our highlights has been meeting with the School Governors to share and discuss how we all work to support Ellison Boulters. We had lots to tell them about what we do and also had an idea or two for them! We are very proud to represent the school. Following on from our meeting, we are thinking about school dinners and our lunchtimes in the hall. Next term we will be doing more work based around this to find out more about what our class mates think.
We had lots of fun on our spotty themed non-uniform fundraising day for Children In Need and raised £302.67!

Our new members have been elected...
On Friday, we were proud to receive our School Council badges and certificates in a special assembly. The School Council would like to thank their classes for nominating them to be their representatives. It is a big honour for us and we will do our best to listen to your ideas and make improvements.
At our first meeting we decided to have a focus for each term:
School ideas for the Autumn Term
Local ideas for the Spring Term
International ideas for the Summer Term.
That way, we can help not only our school, but the area we live and hopefully the world around us too.
This term, we would like your ideas on how to make our playground even friendlier.
Remember to tell the council representative from your class if you have an idea and they can bring it to our meetings.
Also, now you know who we are - if you have any questions about life at school, then please come and talk to us.
