School Council: Blog items
Date: 5th Feb 2024 @ 7:43pm
At our latest meeting, the School Council were joined by Miss Moyes, Miss Jones- Boast and Debbie our Cook.
We met to discuss how to calculate the cost and possible profit that could be made when we sell Elmer themed cup cakes to raise money for Brian House.
The cupcakes will be all different bright colours, just like Elmer. They will be sold at hometime on the school gates and also during the day for staff to purchase too.
Miss Moyes also needed to know what type of school reading books the children would enjoy, as she was going to be ordering some more. The school council then went back to their classes to find out.
Another meeting will be held in the last week of this half term to discuss the results.

At the School Council Meeting, Miss Moyes was our guest. She was here to talk about her recent enterprise visit to Highfurlong with some of the Key Stage 2 children. They explained how they had visited their shop and looked at the different items they have made to sell. Dayle explained that they had to calculate how much each item would cost to make and how much it would have to be sold at the Summer Fair in order to make a profit. The School Council were very excited and were keen to make cards, keyrings and sell mugs. We will be holding a further meeting to discuss our next steps.

The School Council met today for the first time since the elections took place.
They were joined by a special guest, Miss Moyes, who was there to launch Elmer's Big Parade- the School Council's first big fund raising event.
Elmer's Parade is part of the Learning Programme where each school, nursery, college or community group will adopt an Elmer for £99 and pledge to raise a minimum of £850 for Brian House Children’s Hospice. They will receive a blank Mini Elmer sculpture to decorate and there will be a Learning Programme resource pack linked to the curriculum to help teachers stimulate young minds.
These mini Elmer sculptures will accompany our full-sized Elmers on display on the trail, allowing the children and young people, and their families, the chance to see them all and admire their great work. At the end of the trail, the Mini Elmers will be returned to their creators as a permanent legacy and celebration of their involvement.
The Mini Elmers will complement and add value to the main art trail, showcasing the creativity of schools and organisations in our community.
The school council were tasked with collating ideas from their classes as to how Boundary can begin to raise £850 for Brian House. They will meet again next half term with their ideas.

Today Year 1 voted for our class school councillors! This week we have been learning about democracy and what it means. We learnt that in Year 1 we get to make important decisions, such as who we want to be our class representatives for the school council. Children who wanted to be considered delivered their manifestos and explained why they would be a good school councillor and what they would do to make Boundary a better place. Well done to everyone who participated and to our new Year 1 school council representatives!

Today was our school council elections. We began the day by listening to the potential candidates reading out their manifestos - a speech that explains why people should vote for a particular candidate. Later on in the day, each child cast their vote for who they wanted to be the school council representative for Oak and Elder. This helped children to understand the British Value of Democracy.

Following a whole school assembly, the School Council Elections 2022 officially began. Any child who wanted to run for School Councillor had the opportunity to write their manifesto, explain why they would make a good school councillor and then present it to their class.
After this process, which took determination, perseverance and a lot of bravery to stand up in front of their class, the school took to the polls. The votes were counted and verified and the results announced during a results assembly.
We are very proud of all our children who worked hard to write their manifesto, to listen patiently to their peers as they presented their ideas and then take part in a democratic and fair election process.
Congratulations to our new School Councillors!
