Wick School Council is made up of two representatives elected from each class, years 2 to 6. We meet every fortnight and discuss matters that are important to our classes. The school council is lead by the chair and co-chair, usually from our year 6 class, and Mrs Smith helps steer us through the school year.
What do we do?
It is a real mix! Some of our work is to raise money for charities, sometimes for our school, and also to put on events which are fun. We also discuss key issues facing us in school. For example.....
Fundraising; so far this year we have held cake sales and bring and buy sales to raise money for the British Red Cross disaster appeal, The Freewheelers medical charity, and our big event this year, the Red Nose appeal for Comic relief.
School issues; over the next few months we will be working to represent the views of our classes on how to use our lovely play areas most effectively. We will consider zoning the areas so ball games are in one place, quiet play in another, but we always make sure everyone in the class gets to have their say on the big issues.
What is next?
RED NOSE DAY! As soon as we come back after half term we will be selling Red Noses and starting to plan for a crazy day on March 15th.
