John Stainer

School Council

John Stainer is pleased to announce that;

  • Year 3 Aqua: Arran and Eleanor
  • Year 3 Pink: Eliza and David
  • Year 4 Purple: Chinedu
  • Year 4 Orange: Isabel and Ehimwenma
  • Year 5 Yellow: Lashe and Monika
  • Year 5 Red: Orla and George
  • Year 6: Rares and Nur

are the KS2 School Council representatives for the academic year 2017 – 2018.

Each candidate was asked to present speeches to their class, explaining why they wanted to be a School Council member. They explained the issues they believe to be important, and how they will work to represent the ideas of the class.
KS2 classes then cast a secret ballot to decide who they felt would best represent them. This is part of our understanding of British Values of fairness and democracy. These votes were then counted and the winners announced.

School Council summit

In November, School Council members from John Stainer, Beecroft Garden, Kings Hill, and St. John the Baptist primary school met together for the first School Council Summit.

It was held at Beecroft Garden and the purpose of the day was to present, discuss and describe their school and its strengths. Discussions ranged from after school clubs, ways to encourage heathy eating, and how to prevent less waste at lunch time. There were opportunities for the children to ask questions, and share experiences from their own schools, which all the children keenly took part in.

Pecan and advent calendars

In December, a reverse Advent calendar collection took place.

Children and parents were encouraged to bring in a gift instead of taking one, and these donations were collected for Pecan – a local Food Bank who distribute non-perishable food goods to local people in need. Every morning, members of School Council brought out a box to collect these items.

As well as organising a collection of non-perishable goods, School Council were responsible for designing and promoting this year’s advent calendars, which contained suggestions for random acts of kindness, which was our school’s value for the term.
