We are School council and we have been elected to represent the views of all pupils at Lavant and to improve our school.
We meet most weeks to discuss ideas and work on new projects. This may include organising fundraising events, buying equipment, discussing feedback from the whole school community and walking around the school environment to see what is going well and what needs improving. We also often speak to the whole school in assemblies about new projects, competitions or matters related to school topics.
In the past we have supported 3 charities, two charities that are internationally recognised “Children in Need” and “Comic Relief.” We work together to bring a fun filled day to all pupils with the opportunity to learn about the people we help. We have organised big sponsored events and have even made the local newspaper! We have also collected unwanted shoes and donated them to the school children and their families.
Currently, we are working toward purchasing more equipment for use during playtimes. The council felt that children were happier, more active and played more harmoniously when they had fun items to use. We are also negotiating repairs to the “trim trail” and may have to arrange some fundraising to cover the costs.
We really enjoy being part of School Council, working together and sharing responsibilities. We make sure pupils are heard and we get things done!!
