School Council

Every September, one pupil from each class is democratically elected to hold the position of School Council Representative. To find out who represents each class, click on the the year group links below. 

                                          

The LJS School Council work hard each year on a variety of projects. Some of our successes have included:

  • creating fliers to harness support from our neighbours to keep our field clean
  • establishing boy and girl toilets (rather than mixed) 
  • giving £100 to charity, which was presented to a representative from Marie Curie in a school assembly
  • organising a variety of stalls to raise an incredible £705.46 at our Annual School Council Fundraiser
  • raising £105 for our 'Friends of LJS' as children sold tickets for a raffle in order to win a family trip to the Sea Life Centre

The School Council welcome all ideas from their classmates through use of our suggestion box, surgeries and class meetings. Our School Council is well supported by the Chairperson, Deputy Chairperson, Finance Officer and Marketing Manager (Year 6 pupils).  

 

Wellbeing Tips

As a part of Children's Mental Health Week, we would like to encourage all pupils to engage with this year's theme: 'Express Yourself'.

Our LJS School Council and Year 6 Growth Mindset Champions have created a video to help promote everyone's health and wellbeing. Please watch below and take lots of opportunities to follow their brilliant tips! Which ones inspire you to express yourself?

Our LJS School Council have raised a grand total of £318, by selling raffle tickets in order to win a hamper full of sweets! The winner was George in 3W. Well done George!

              

                                  

 

Poppy Appeal

School Council Representatives have been organising the Poppy Appeal this year, encouraging children in their class to donate and buy a poppy, or poppy stationary, for Remembrance. Well done!

                            

Keep LJS Tidy!

School Council Representatives have decided that they would like to care for their school environment by encouraging peers to be more responsible for their own litter. As a result, School Council Representatives have begun to lead a litter picking scheme during break times and lunch times. This act has made LJS consider the importance of keeping our school clean and has shown that we can all have an impact on the world around us.

       

Acts of Kindness Club

Our LJS School Council are leading an Acts of Kindness Club this term, where they are encouraging pupils to initiate ‘penpal’ writing to residents at a local care home. On colourful postcards, pupils have been describing exciting events that have been happening at school, such as our House Music Competition. Also, pupils have been explaining what they have been learning about this term, including dissecting a heart in Science! We look forward to any replies we receive about the residents’ experiences of school.
