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 Mr Fawcett .
If you are a pupil at our school and you have any ideas please speak to your school council member.
During this school year (2016/17) the School Council have organised a Spotty Challenge Day to raise money for Children in Need. The school Councillors hid Pudsey Bears around the whole school for the other children to find and chart on maps of the building. Staff and pupils were asked to wear spotty clothing. We raised £340 for the BBC Children in Need appeal.
It has been a busy first half to the Spring Term for the School Council. They have discussed the schools community and learning values, how to improve writing and PSHCE in the school, ideas for Adele our school artist and ideas for celebrating World Book Day. After half term we will be discussing how to fundraise for Comic Relief, how to improve art across the school, analysing this terms topics and suggesting ways to make learning for next term really exciting.
During the Autumn Term the School Council have had an opportunity to meet the Chair of Adur Council: Ann Bridges and organise a Christmas Card Design Competition. They have also held meetings on our school values, the importance of self-assessment and how to increase personal challenge in lessons.
