School Council

Having a School Council at Hook-with-Warsash means children can have their say and can make a difference to our school.

The School Council is made up of one child from each class (years 1-6). These children have been democratically elected by their classmates to act as their class representative. The School Council meet twice every half term to discuss a variety of issues relating to the school. The School Council look at both school and wider community issues. They are the pupils' voice and have an important role to play when making decisions about: the school buildings, the curriculum, lunch and play times and other important events.

The School Council also are involved with the decision making process when it comes to the school’s charity and community work. Year 6 members chair the meetings, assisted by a member of staff, and all children contribute to each meeting by sharing ideas they have discussed with their classes over the previous weeks.

Once a term, the year 6 School Council representatives are invited to talk to the school governing body to report on a range of activities undertaken by the pupils.

The Friendship Tree

And finally...the tree has been built!

This tree was designed by children at the school. The school council announced that they felt the Junior playground needed a Friendship area as they missed the Friendship bench in the Infant playground. The children specifically asked for a tree-but they wanted it to be unique. Every child in the school was invited to design a tree and the winning designs were put together to create the final design. The children have been working hard to raise the money for the tree including doing a sponsored spell, sponsoring a leaf and organising a fund-raising day. We also had a generous donation from an anonymous grand-parent meaning that we had enough money to build the tree. the children are very excited about this new addition to the playground.
