At St. Anne’s we are proud of our School Council as it represents the views and opinions of the most important people in the school: our children.
Children from each year group were democratically chosen by their class to represent the views of the whole class at the council meetings. It is a great compliment to the children who were chosen and they have many plans for the coming year.
During the past year, it has been really difficult to run our student council due to Covid-19. We hope our school returns to normal soon so that we can start our excellent work again.
Our school council members are:
On Wednesday 30th June, the School Council Elections took place. The children had been busy presenting their “manifestos” which resulted in shortlist of candidates being prepared for every class. Councillor Nikki Hennessy and the School Governors presided over the elections, explaining how to complete their ballot papers and to remember that every vote counts! The children went into a ballot booth to ensure their decision was secret before placing it in the ballot box!
This year, the School Council are planning a range of activities to raise money for School and for Cafod.
The year began with a pumpkin decorating competition which raised more than £50.
In December we held our annual School Council Santa Fun Run! It was amazing to see the children take part so enthusiastically whilst counting out the number of laps they ran around the playground in twenty minutes! We successfully raised £1700 for school equipment!
We also raised a further £270 -thanks to our St. Anne’s parents’ incredibly generous donations of cakes for the School Council CAFOD cake sale. With this we were able to sponsor some refugee children and purchase kits to provide water for families from the Cafod World Gifts Catalogue.
This year we successfully held an Easter Egg Decorating Competition where children excelled themselves with creating their own egg designs. School Council reps lead an Easter Egg Hunt for each class and fortunately the weather managed to stay dry.
