Elston Hall School Council is a group of pupils that represent the voice of all pupils.
They listen to suggestions and ideas that are of importance to their peers and the good of the school.
We have an active School Council which comprises of representatives from Year 2 and Key Stage 2 year groups. They are elected annually by their classmates.
School councillors work together within their team and form links with their class, year group, staff, whole school and community to enhance, make changes or support fundraising events.
Their suggestions make a positive contribution to the school's continual development.
School Council held their first formal meeting in September and elected 6 pupils to represent Nursery, Reception and Year 1.
School council have been selling daffodil pins at school to raise money for this worthwhile cause.
On March 23rd we raised money for Sport Relief. It was an exciting day for the children allowing them to help and support others. The children took part in lots of 'sporty activities' throughtout the day, including a run around the school! This year School Council have decided to raise money for two charities. The money raised for Sports Relief will go towards saving lives and helping children in the UK and worldwide, and Compton Hospice is a local charity who provide care and support for families living with incurable illnesses in Wolverhampton.
Children made a selection of wonderful Christmas cards which were delivered to local residential care homes and sheltered accommodation. Cards were warmly received and the residents expressed their appreciation.
Children braved the snow and had a wonderful Christmassy day wearing fantastic Christmas jumpers to raise money for the 'Save the Children'! Children also enjoyed a delicious Christmas lunch! Thank you to School Council for helping to organise the day.
BBC Children in Need brought back the theme of ‘SPOTACULAR’ for a second year as the nation’s pupils were so spot on with their fundraising. School Council decided to get involved and help raise money for this incredible cause on Friday 17th November. To do our bit and raise money, children dressed in their spottiest clothes and donated 50p which went directly to the charity.
As part of the day we also had a bake sale. Thank you to all parents/carers who sent in the most amazing cakes! Thank you so much for your support in helping us raise a massive £1035.00 for this worthwhile cause.
School Council sold poppies during fruit and milk time to raise money for the British Legion. We raised almost £1000 for the Royal British Legion!
Thank you for your support.
First we went to the council chamber and we sat down in the councillors seats. When the Mayor and his wife, the Mayoress, came in we all had to stand up to welcome him. He told us lots of information and we asked him lots of questions. It was really interesting! He told us that he is the 158th Mayor of Wolverhampton and that there is a new Mayor being elected next week. He said that to be elected as the Mayor you have to have been the longest serving councillor and he was a councillor of Wolverhampton for 25 years before he was elected last year.
We then went into the Mayor's parlour and we had a drink and a biscuit and the Mayor told us lots more interesting information. After that we all got a chance to try on the Mayor's cloak and chain - it was very heavy! Once we had all had a try on, we went out onto the balcony and the Mayor showed us some of the sights of Wolverhampton. We had a really good view of the Molineux. Then we got a really special treat, we went into the Mayor's office and we sat down and he showed us some of the things he keeps in there like trophies and memorabilia from other countries.
Finally it was time to go back to school and we all got given a goody pack with things to remember our visit. It was so much fun!
School Council arrangeed for Elston Hall to support the Marie Curie Cancer Appeal. Daffodils were sold in school throughout March at a suggested donation of 50p.
