Holy Apostles’ School Council
2016 – 2017
Our school has had a School Council since 1st September 2004. It is made up of a boy and a girl from each class so we have 14 members altogether. It is up to each class to decide who its representatives are and for how long they can be on the School Council. We also have Mr Davies our Head Teacher and Mr Staley our Deputy Head Teacher at our meetings and they help us with the things we want to do. We usually meet on Wednesdays at 12.30 every two weeks.
Over a long time, the School Council has done a lot of things. For example, in 2007, the Council agreed a Charter for Friendship and has reviewed it at the beginning of every year since. In 2011, the Council members worked with the PTA to choose the equipment for our big Trim Trail and welcomed Olympic Medallist Leon Taylor to come to school to try it out! Last year, the Council again worked with the PTA to provide a smaller Trim Trail for the infants. The Council has also decided on which names to call our Houses and spent a lot of time choosing the best Values to have for our school.
At the beginning of this Summer Term, we have our first meeting on Wednesday, 26th April and some classes have chosen new representatives. You can see the new Council members below. At the end of last term, we replaced our outside stage with a new one because the old one was rotten and breaking up. We also decided to drop the Jokes Book and outside clock ideas because there was not al lot of interest in them. This term, we will be looking for our own examples of our Values and then bringing them to our Values Assembly on Monday mornings.
At the end of this school year, we will be having a Holy Apostles’ Has Got Talent show on Monday, 24th July. Everyone can enter and pays 50p and the money collected goes to buy prizes. Each class can have 2 acts in the show and it is up to the class to decide who the acts are.
