What a busy autumn term! The school council at Coleman Primary School have been a committed team and delivered lots of great ideas to improve the school. At the beginning of the school term, they discussed positive ways to gain house points in order to encourage excellent behaviour! These included: helping your teachers, producing good writing in literacy, eating your dinner, plus many more. In addition, they organised a whole school house point competition and voted for a deserved winner.
In November, Children In Need was the focus, so they listed potential charities which the school could raise money for. The team decided to raise money by telling children (and teachers!) at school to dress up as their favourite heroes. By agreeing on bringing in just 50p to dress up, the school managed to raise £360!
Anti- Bullying Week in November was organised by the council and another whole school poster competition was set, where the school council voted for a winner. The winner was presented with a prize during a special anti- bullying assembly, which was delivered by year 5 and 6 members of the team.
Towards the end of the busy term, the school council decided to involve the school in another competition. To create the best Christmas, Eid or Diwali card! The winners of this competition were presented their awards by the local MP in a special assembly!
Another busy term! At the start of the spring term, new representatives were elected from each class to join the school council. The team have again been committed in delivering lots of great ideas to improve the school. At the beginning of the school term, they promoted the new school library and ran a poster competition in which pupils needed to produce a poster of their favourite novel and author. Winning entries were put up in the new library.
In March, Comic Relief was the focus. The team decided to raise money by telling children (and teachers!) at school to dress up in red and bringing in just 50p. Red noses were also sold in school and in total, the school managed to raise £474!
The school council decided that recycling was an issue that needed addressing around school. Therefore, each class council representative organised a class debate and election in class, in which the main problems and benefits of recycling were discussed. The particular issues around Coleman were then addressed and a vote took place in which each class decided on effective ways to improve recycling around school. These ideas were then taken back to the school council by the representative and will be implemented in the summer term.
