A school council is a group of pupils within a school who are elected by their peers to represent them and their views. They help to make decisions about how the school is run and take on projects that support the children’s learning and development, such as organising charity events, representing the school at outside events or ensuring the school is environmentally friendly.
Why do we have a school council?
What does Fortuna School's Council look like?
At Fortuna School our council is made up of 10, year 6 pupils who have been chosen to represent the pupils. The
pupils usually complete a term as an acting school council representative. This ensures that all year 6 pupils have the opportunity to participate.
The school council does a number of things:
Working in the School Garden
School Council Projects
This term the School Council have entered the Lincolnshire School's Challenge. This is the first time we have entered the challenge and are very excited. Our challenge is called Art from the Heart, and this is our challenge:
Your challenge is to showcase the LAS by creating a piece of artwork made from majority recycled or reclaimed materials. The LAS is committed to maintaining a sustainable future and would like to install the winning artwork within the grounds, so it is
important that your artwork is impactful, free-standing and weatherproof where possible
(minimum size approx. 1m x 1m).
The artwork should incorporate the LAS ethos and represent the Society in some way, with its education and promotion of food, farming, the countryside and Lincolnshire heritage. The challenge should show research techniques, new skills and knowledge and understanding of recycling and reclamation processes. Students should document their planning, design and prototype stage.
Students are tasked with developing a campaign alongside their artwork to promote
recycling in the school, families and wider community, along with an action plan of how to
improve current practices and change mindsets.
Our Challenge Update
