The School Council is an organisation represented by almost the whole school with each classes from year one up having two councillors. We meet every two weeks and discuss items that have been raised in class through class councils, or fund-raising activities. We listen to the children’s views and try to improve things in the school by passing these ideas on in order to achieve a positive result.
The school council have also had their own assembly to promote issues they felt strongly about (uniform and healthy lunchboxes), and have put together a proposal for the Governors for the sand-area. They presented very well and have been given the go ahead. Now comes the important task of fundraising!
As well as this, the School Council organises and presents the annual “Highwoods’ Got Talent.” The children very much enjoy taking part in group or solo acts.
