Eastbrook School Council consists of pupils from Year 1 to Year 6. These children are voted into place by their peers and have an important job as they represent all of the pupils in the school. They also help to organise fundraising events and open the Suggestions Box regularly to see what ideas the children have to improve the school even more. They meet every fortnight and are supported by Mrs Sutcliff .
If you are a pupil at our school and you have any ideas please speak to your school council member.
School Council enjoy organising fundraising activities. Their first fundraiser this year (2019/20) was the Penny Tree Challenge. They raised £667 to help fund resources for our playgrounds. We also enjoyed collecting for Children in Need and raised around £400.
So far this year, our School Council have discussed:
- break times
- how we learn geography skills and where we could visit to enhance our geography learning
- healthy eating and how we can promote it within school
- rewarding children who always show excellent behaviour
- how we can help children who find staying calm difficult
The School Council were lucky enough to visit the Houses of Parliament in London.
