The Beam County Primary School school councillors have a wide range of duties, which include:
- Reporting back to their class after every school council meeting
- Holding a meeting of the class council every two weeks
- Taking issues brought up by their class to the school council, and communicating the views of their class.
Our campaign: WE WON'T REST
‘We are currently raising awareness of homelessness in the UK and the national homeless charity ‘Crisis’ across Beam Primary. School Councillors have created a short video to be presented to the school in an assembly noting various statistics and effects it has on individuals, along with a number of posters and photos for children and staff to observe.
How can WE help? As part of this campaign, School Councillors are encouraging our school, both pupils and staff, to collect clothes and dry or tinned food for a local homeless shelter to ensure the homeless in our borough are kept warm this Winter.’
Please press We Won’t Rest – Small to watch our video.
Tycoon in Schools
The school council are running a new whole school project this half term and so it would be great to get this information onto the website:
The School Council are currently taking part in Tycoon in Schools, a national enterprise competition created by Peter Jones CBE, in which they are to create and run their own business. Our school councillors have worked very hard to think of a good business idea which is appropriate for our year groups and that would obtain a good profit for the school. Moreover, if we produce enough profit, we may win a very special trip into London for an awards ceremony!
Every Wednesday beginning 8th November, school councillors will be selling ‘Fancy Fruit Pots’ in both the KS1 and KS2 playgrounds at lunch time. Children will be able to select what they would like from the 6 fruits available and will either give 50p for 3 fruits or £1 for 6 fruits. Pupils will also have the opportunity to have a dash of sprinkles or chocolate sauce if they so wish. KS1 will be able to decorate their pot/cup with coloured pens at a decorating station too!
We hope these healthy fruit pots will go down a treat!
