Thank you to Elmhurst’s School Council

I have been so proud of the School Council this year and particularly in the active role they have played in interviewing potential staff this term, working on piloting and developing a new behaviour reward system, organising and running the Sports for Schools fundraising event and choosing new equipment from money raised from the “Putting Young Minds to Work” business and enterprise course for Year 6 pupils.

Our pupils are the most important members of our school community and Pupil Voice is essential in ensuring that Elmhurst School is a happy school. The boys always offer creative and innovative insight and ideas and the questions that the School Council came up with for recent staff interviews, really reflects their creativity. Here are some examples:

  • If you had a superpower what would it be?
  • How do you make your lessons fun?
  • What is your favourite subject? Why?
  • Are you a follower or a leader? Why?
  • Why do you think you would make a good staff member at our school?

Our sponsored Fitness Circuit Event with 'Sports for Schools' organised by the School Council, was extremely successful. Thank you to all parents for their generosity. Money raised will be going to the playground. We will be totalling all the money at our next School Council Meeting after half term and look forward to sharing further updates.

Thank you again, boys, for all your hard work.

- Mrs Mawanda
