What is the School Council?
The school council works to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at Newhall Park. We look around for things that could be better and discuss what to do. Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things or fundraising. Sometimes we have to talk to teachers and sometimes we have to make phone calls to people outside of the school.
Who are the School Councillors?
Every year we run an election campaign to vote for a representative for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings and put the minutes up in the classroom.
We try to be very professional in the council so we use a lot of business words. Hopefully this will help.

School Council Article
Our first responsibility as a new council was to provide feedback on our new school menu. Following on from the new menu that started this week the pupils seem happy and excited by the new popular choices. Packed lunches are now available with the added option of potato wedges with a sandwich, which seem to be a welcome change. Copies of the new menu have gone home to parents and it appears everyone is feeling positive about the new menu! Year 4 especially like the addition of the chicken curry and Year 3 like the burger option. Finally, everyone likes the superhero characters which are making lunchtimes fun and creative.
