our school council
We are a group of children of different ages and from different classes who work together to help to improve our school. Every year each class from year two upward, elects a new representative.
Meetings and Student Voice books
We meet regularly to discuss our ideas and have student voice books which we take to each meeting. We use these books to communicate the opinions and ideas of our classmates, which are then shared during the meetings, with the other councilors. We also write down what has been discussed at the meetings, so we can tell our classes. This means that all of the students in our school can have a say in what happens at Hazeldene.
Fundraising and School projects
Over the years we have organised lots of events to raise money for our school and some charities. These have included the Great Hazeldene Bake off, The Easter Egg colouring completion and our annual Macmillan Coffee Morning/Afternoon and bake sale. Over the last eleven years we have raised over £2500 for the Macmillan cancer research charity.
We also help at the Christmas and Summer Fayres every year by organising and running various games stalls. The money raised from one Christmas fayre went towards the ‘tyre park’ on our school field.
Previously, we set up a lunchtime stationery shop which sold pencils, rubbers, note books etc. The money raised from this is spent on playground equipment.
We look forward to another busy and productive year where we hope to make even more improvements to our school.
