School Council 2021-2022

Thursday 21st October 2021

The School Council met for their first meeting. The children introduced themselves and they discussed what makes a good School Council representative. The children were reminded of what their role is in the School Council and they were given their badges. They then discussed and brainstormed different ideas that they could do to make Parkside even better. The main idea that the children would like to start with is to enrich the learning environment within the school by having more plants in classrooms and communal areas.

Friday 2nd November 2021

The School Council discussed ways they could fundraise in order to purchase plants for the school. They came up with lots of ideas such as: non school uniform days, holding a winter festival, cake sales, selling old toys. They decided that they would like to hold a non school uniform day in the near future as their first fundraiser. 

Tuesday 9th November 2021

The School Council met today to write a letter to Ms Cousins. In their letter, they have shared their idea to enrich the school environment by adding more plants. They have also requested a non school uniform day to raise money for the plants. The children will give the letter to Ms Cousins and wait for her response! 

Tuesday 16th November 2021

Today the School Council gave their letter to Ms Cousins and requested a non school uniform day to raise money to purchase plants for the school. Ms Cousins gave permission to the School Council to hold their fundraising event on Friday 3rd December. The School Council were very pleased!

Tuesday 23rd November 2021

Today, the School Council met to write a letter to the parents to inform them about the non school uniform day. However before writing the letter, they researched the positive effects of having indoor plants. It was important they did this so that they could persuade the parents to donate money. 

Tuesday 30th November 2021

As the non school uniform day is on Friday, today the School Council made their own special boxes to collect the donated money for the plants. They decorated their boxes by drawing and sticking on different flowers and plants. 

Friday 3rd December 2021

Today it was the School Council's first fundraising event! The children were very excited to see everyone dressed up in colours to represent nature and to collect in the money that the children had donated. The School Council went around the school with their donation boxes and collected the money. 

Tuesday 7th December 2021

Today the children had a big job to count up all of the money that was raised on the non - school uniform day. They worked together to do their best counting. In total the school raised £571.40 to buy plants for the school! 

Tuesday 14th December 2021

Today a parent very kindly donated plants to the school. The School Council took charge and gave them out to the classes in KS2. They also watered them and researched how to look after the plants. The School Council also decided they would take responsibility for them and take them home during the Christmas Holidays to look after them. 

Tuesday 18th January 2022

Today the School Council met and researched which plants would be good to have indoors.

They created a list of plants and shared their thoughts with each other.

Tuesday 1st February 2022

Today the School Council decided which plants they would like to have in school. They have chosen 5 plants and began to create a powerpoint all about the plants. Once the powerpoint is completed, they are going to present it to Ms Cousins and see which plants she would like to purchase for the school.
