Cowley Hill School Council

Our school council is made up of representatives from Reception to Year 6, led by Mrs Gilbert and Mrs Antoniou. 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 recently raised just over £500 for the Guide Dogs! A guide dog speaker and a very cute pup in training did an assembly to talk to us about what they do - it was great to see first-hand where the money that is raised actually goes. 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, we are excited about installing the friendship benches and are thinking about how to make playtimes even more inclusive and happy for everyone. Healthy Eating will also be a focus in the summer term, along with a visit to the Borehamwood Civic Offices where we will hopefully have the opportunity to meet the Mayor, gain an insight into how councils are run and how they make decisions.

Thank you for your continued support – it really does make a difference.
