Student Council Day 2020

On Wednesday 11th November, our BIS Junior Campus hosted the annual Student Council Cross-Campus Meeting with BVIS. This year 62 children attended to inspire each other with their ideas for school improvement.

The Student Council gives pupils a chance to take on some responsibility and leadership in the school. Being a Student Council Representative is an opportunity to have a voice in school and to suggest ways to make our school even better. The children represent their class and campus, collecting ideas from their peers and reporting back. They discuss school priorities and then put forward their initiatives to their Head of Campus. 

The purpose of the annual meeting is for the Student Councils from the Early Years & Infant Campus, Junior Campus and BVIS to get to know each other and share ideas they can bring back to their own school.

The day began with some activities for the students to get to know each other. These included a ‘get to know you’ bingo game where the students had to go round asking lots of questions in order to find someone with green eyes or someone who played an instrument. After that, the Student Councils from each of the 3 campuses made a short presentation about what they have been doing so far and their proposals for this year. The Executive Committee presented for BIS Juniors and The Mini Council presented for BIS EY&I. This was followed by a question and answer session, where students could find out more about the ideas that interested them or suggest new ideas for other schools. There were lots of opportunities for students to talk in mixed groups with their peers from other campuses and lots of new friends were made. 

The Executive Committee of the Junior Campus then led the children on a tour of their campus, sharing the ideas they had already implemented and giving the other Student Councils an opportunity to gain ideas. This was a popular highlight of the day and the BVIS and Mini Council students came away buzzing with ideas!

Everyone really enjoyed the day and sharing their ideas. I think Mr Ian and Ms Dee will have a lot of Student Council suggestions coming their way very soon!

“It was an exciting, fun day full of activities where we got to meet lots of new people and make new friends. There were lots of very good ideas to take away. My favourite was the lunch time dessert idea by the Mini Council.”
