School Council

School Council Members

This year, our School Council is made up of two elected representatives from each class between Years 3 and 6. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we had to make the decision to include less year groups, so that we could maintain a safe distance (2m+) in meetings as well as to ensure enhanced hygiene measures!

Children interested in representing the views of their classmates wrote individual manifestos and made a speech to their class. These outlined their suitability for the role as well as their ideas and aspirations for making their school an even better place to be part of. Then the class voted on who they felt would represent them best!

The School Council meets regularly to discuss the issues that are important to the children, whether that be inside school or in their local community. Our councillors are eager to raise awareness and funds for charities close to their homes and hearts; for example, their annual Harvest collections for ‘Sparkhill Food Bank’ and other local organisations.

A Note from your Councillors

Hi everyone! We hope this finds you well. We are so excited to represent the views of all the children in Christ Church, it is such an honour and we will try to live up to the responsibility.

This year, we want to continue the success of the ‘Healthy Mind, Healthy Future’ idea by focussing on promoting a love of reading and taking care of our mental health. This will be through creative projects across the school. Great ideas - including book challenges, art shows and school newspapers - have already been discussed!

We cannot wait to get started and anticipate an exciting year ahead!

Meetings

We meet regularly to discuss projects or suggestions from the rest of the school.

Each meeting is chaired by the School Council co-ordinator (Miss Minhas) and minutes are collated by her as well. The rest of the meeting is run by us! We choose which tasks we need to complete, what events or initiatives we need to discuss, we check our calendars and organise which decisions/issues we need to take back to our classes for a vote or discussion.

Newsletters

We love how diverse our community is here in Sparkbrook; it’s what makes us special! To make newsletters easier to access for all of our school children and community, we have decided to create a video-version of our school’s newsletters every fortnight.

We hope that you enjoy them and that they help with keeping up to date with all the events and fun at our school!
