Our school has had a School Council since 1st September 2004. It is made up of two children 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. Smith at our meetings and he helps us with the things we want to do. We usually meet on Thursdays 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! A few years ago, 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 - Matthew, Mark, Luke and John - after the four Gospel writers and spent a lot of time choosing the best Values to have for our school. In 2022 they invited the Bishop of Gloucester to visit Holy Apostles' School as well as plan the day to help celebrate 150 years of our School.
The School Council replaced our outside stage with a new one because the old one was rotten and breaking up. Please read or Curriculum Newsletter to find what else our School Council have been doing.
The School Council, through their class discussions choose our termly Values for our Values Assembly on Monday mornings.
