What is our School Council?
Our School Council consist of two elected members from each class. They meet termly with Miss Brownfield to discuss issues that are important to them and to help organise fundraising opportunities.
At the start of the year, they set out a programme of charities that they wanted to support.
So far this year we have raised money for:
- The Ugandan Children’s Choir (dressing in the colours of the Ugandan flag)
- Children In Need (bucket collection)
- Save the Children (Christmas Jumper Day)
- Diabetes Awareness (wearing a hat)
If you have any ideas of how we can continue to improve your school, please speak to your School Council Reps.

What does School Council do?
A school council does a number of things:
Our school council meets to discuss out issues and come up with ideas to improve the school and make it a happy place to learn and play.
Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning competitions and events, writing newsletters, or meeting with staff to discuss ideas.
What makes our School Council a good one?
We believe that our school council is a good one because it represents the views of all the pupils at St George’s and it gets things done.
To make sure we are effective our school council needs to have:
Class discussions with representatives leading in their own classes
Good communication between representatives and their class
Training for school council members
Smaller groups of the school council working on specific events or issues
How important is our School Council?
Last year schools all over Kent joined together to have meetings with their local schools to discuss important issues. So now the voices and ideas of pupils from our school can be shared with others to make a difference in our local area.
