Who’s who on the school council for 2016/2017
Thank you to all of the children who volunteered themselves for a role on the school council. The year 6 pupils have written very persuasive letters applying for the different vacancies and we revealed the successful pupils during a recent celebration assembly. We are really looking forward to an efficient and productive school council.

The school council are currently running a weekly tuck shop which helps us raise money for different projects. It has helped us fund our new school fish tank. Do pop in and see them in the school foyer.
History of the school council
The Arnett Hills School Council is an elected body of children from all year groups who each represent a different class in a forum for children to take an active part in the running of the school. The offices of Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer are filled by elected Y6 children.
Mrs O’Neill (our Deputy Headteacher) are in charge of the School Council. They meet regularly with the children during each term and listen to the ‘voice’ of the children. Feedback to Miss Ali is made through the Chairperson.
Over the past year the School Council has selected charities to support on a local, national and global stage. They have also organised the running of a healthy tuck shop, funds from which will be spent on resources for school.
Targets achieved previously have included lockers purchased for Year 6, setting up and running the healthy tuck-shop, the selection and installation of new playground trim trail and the running of various lunchtime activities including games, card, yoyo and library club. Through a pupil survey previously the school council also highlighted pupils’ desire for a computer and art club – both are now in place. Both of these were offered to pupils and were well attended.
