School Council Meeting Minutes




Cancelled due to Covid19 

Voting is now over - 27th September 2019.  We are delighted to welcome a new school council which consists of Year 4,5 and 6.  Our Year 6 children will be acting as Chair, Treasurer and Secretary as we move forward.  Their first two tasks will be:

  • Organising a Children in Need Ramble
  • Creating a list of new books for the library after consultation with all year groups

A bequest has been left for Bishopstone School by Mary Greenwood.  Mary worked at Bishopstone School for just over 12 years, in that time many village children passed through her wonderful teaching and inspirationally decorated classroom.  A quiet area in the front of the school has been designated as her legacy to the school.

Ideas from the meetings January-July 2019

  • World Book Day - carousel of activities, dress up and an e-book creation
  • Red Nose Day - Dress up, rock, paper, scissors tournament
  • Lunchtime bingo
  • Bake Off competition
  • Colour Run
  • Shade for the playground in the summer (FOBS are fundraising for this)

I am sure there will be many more......

"School Council are a group of children that try to make the school a better, happier and fun place.  There is one member from each year group yrs2-6.  We discuss what can be changed every two weeks and our current school council is great! 

We are happy to take suggestions from anybody, so don't be scared to give us one!"
