Pupil Voice

This academic year has seen a structure change to the School Council groups and Houses. First, all the children were put into new groups, then named after the roads surrounding the school. Once the children were in their new groups they ran elections for Captain and Vice-Captain for each group. Our Year 6 School Council Reps can be seen below.

School Council Reps

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our reps meet every Tuesday morning to discuss various topics that affect the children or the community such as; planning lunchtimes, environment and routines. Eleanor chairs the meeting, Amelia takes the minutes and the reps prepare what subjects to talk to their groups about on the Friday. During School Council, all children get the opportunity to voice their opinions and have a say in changes and improvements around the school.

Once the School Council groups were well established, one of their first jobs was to rename the houses for the school. The winning names were:

  • Falcons
  • Owls
  • Eagles
  • Hawks

It was then decided that the School Council groups would feed into each of the houses. The houses are made up of the following School Council groups:

Falcons
Telford
Collyer
Shenley

Owls
Lowbell
Meadow
Sanders

Eagles
St. Annes
Caledon
Lakeside
Hardwicke

Hawks
Manor
Napsbury
Norris
Chester

Following the School Council groups being allocated to their new houses, there was an inter-house election to select the House Captains who would take on jobs such as showing visitors around the school, collecting house points and so on. After a whole day of elections and voting, the House Captains were elected. Bowmansgreen are pleased to announce that the following students are the new House Captains:

Kai, Diogo, Libby, Maddie, Jack, Demi, Teyah and Megan F-B. You can find out more about our House captains by following these links:

Now all the positions have been filled and meetings are in full swing, we are all excited to see the changes and impact that the School Council and House Captains will bring to Bowmansgreen Primary.
