School Council

Year 1 Green Class Photo

Firs Hill School Council meet regularly with Mr Mitchell to discuss issues in school. We report back to our classes and find out what everybody wants to do to improve our school. We also help plan events and activities for the rest of the school to enjoy and raise money for charity. We are elected at the beginning of every year.

How we were chosen

Anyone who wanted to stand as a counsellor wrote a speech at home. It had to be persuasive and say why we could be a good class representative. Qualities of a good school councillor included being a good listener, being confident, having a loud voice and being able to take on board other children’s ideas. We presented our speeches to our classes.  Then all the pupils had a secret ballot and the top two children from each class were chosen.

Our Aims in 2015-2016
