An opportunity to represent our peers
Castle Hill Primary School belongs to all of us, so our opinions matter.
We have a School Council (which we call Student Senate) which means that everybody's voice can be heard.
In September, pupils from each year group make speeches and their peers vote for who they want to represent them as a member of the Student Senate. Each class votes for two children usually a boy and a girl. The teachers also have a vote and they can nominate children for all sorts of reasons. Once voted onto the Senate these representatives meet regularly with Mr Martin and Miss Wyers at Greenbank or Mr Martin and Miss Austin at Rooksdown. The meetings begin with a greeting of 'salutations!' and then we talk about issues raised at class level.
We have a chairperson who leads our meetings and Miss Wyers and Miss Austin help us make to decisions.
Some of the changes that the Student Senate have been involved in are:
Names for school colour groups, many fundraising initiatives, different choices of activities for Friday Fun and most recently how we can spend time with Ruffles so it is fair.
Changes to school uniform, many fundraising initiatives and ways to spend money raised.
