In September, Cowley Hill School pupils elected a new School Council for 2020/2021. The new School Council are looking forward to the year ahead and would really love you to support them as much as you can. Keep an eye out for updates and information about what the School Council is getting up to in the weekly newsletter.

Cowley Hill School Council
Our school council is made up of representatives from Reception to Year 6, led by Ms Boon. We meet regularly to discuss improvements to our school and decide on fund-raising projects. The school council members report back to their classes and pass on the views of their class during meetings.
The school council decided to focus on ‘Pupil Wellbeing’ this academic year and have had a busy time already organising events to help this. In February, the school council ran a ‘Friendship Week’ where children played games and took part in class-swaps to meet new friends. The whole school enjoyed learning about how to make new friends and how to be a good friend. We also raised money to buy a friendship bench for each playground, so that we can continue to promote kindness and friendship in our school.
As well as our own school community, we fundraise for charities in the wider community and have chosen Crisis - Homeless Shelter this year. Other charities that we have supported include: NSPCC, Watford Peace Hospice and Crisis at Christmas Homeless Charity. It makes us realise how much we can achieve when we work together.
Looking ahead, Healthy Eating will also be a focus in the spring term.
If you have any suggestions or would like more information, please contact Miss Boon, via the school office.
Thank you for your continued support – it really does make a difference.
