School Council Votes
Here are your candidates:
I would like to be chair (School Council) because I have an aim to help the environment.
My aim is to help the environment and the wildlife by encouraging pupils to put their plastic, cardboard, cans & caper in the recycling bin. If they’re at school then use the classroom bin if they are at home to put in their own recycling bin. Also give them tips on how to help the environment like to use reusable bags & turn your light off if you’re not in the room at home and at school. Also so they don’t hurt the sea creatures to always put your litter/rubbish in the bin and pick up litter off the ground (not with their hands but with gloves or other suitable ways.) My other aim is for the wildlife, to help bugs pupils can make small bug homes such as piling some sticks/logs on each other and they can add grass in the middle for them to eat. And to inspire the younger children such as Reception, Y1, Y2 to get involved too. The last thing I want to do is make sure everyone feels safe and happy at school & to make sure everybody has friends to make them happy and laugh. I’m not afraid to share my ideas with others and to think differently to other people but to take their ideas into consideration.
By Ellie ( :
I would like to be School Council Chair or part of the School Council in general because I want to advance the school or, in other words, make the school better or more appealing to potential students and for old students.
I want to make all the students happy but since that might not be possible, I have decided to make an option available for children to input ideas. I hope this will be helpful in later situations where children might be unhappy with certain parts of the school.
I hope to make this text appealing to students who are interested in the following: music, writing, drawing, painting, acting and many more in the genre of art because I think that art has either been under used in this school or has been a lot more restricted for children than it should be. For example, none of the children play music in the school plays which I know would take a lot of practice, but it would be a great addition to any future productions and a great achievement to those performing. I would also like to point out that there are no acting related activities while art and music are funded largely which is a shame because an activity like acting would unlock an amazing creative career path and help team building.
I am disappointed that I cannot tell you anything else as this would be too long, but I would be very pleasantly surprised if you voted for me.
Thank you for listening to me. I hope you enjoyed it because this made me feel like a fish on dry land.
Yours Sincerely, Victoria
Molly and Jessica

Hello, I’m Sienna and I’m running for School Council Chair because I believe we can make this school not only a place for learning, but also a place of AMAZING FUN!!
Because we all need some extra fun time in class [sometimes]!! If each teacher could make some time in their schedule each week, the class can vote for a song and the teacher will put up the lyrics on the board and the whole class can join in some singing fun, whilst taking a break from school work.
House Obstacle Course
On the last Friday of every term will be an obstacle course competition between the houses. The fastest completers can win prizes as well as house points for their house, and the house with the most points will win!
You also have a chance to win the school record, which will be displayed on the house board.
At the end of every term there will be a movie night! This will be held in the school hall, on the projector. We will vote for the movie. We’ll have beanbags and cushions. We’ll have squash, juice, pizza and popcorn to make the night extra fun and cool.
Every week there will be an animal up on the school council board, for example an Elephant. The best five facts will be pinned next to the animal on the board for everyone can admire them and learn from them!
I’d like to introduce Eco Warriors! Every term, four Eco Warriors will be chosen. They will be head of our recycling at school. They will be responsible for choosing a pupil that has done an outstanding job on recycling. The pupil
will be put on the school council board with a paragraph of what they have done to save our planet! There will be Eco Warrior badges for Eco Warriors. Eco Warriors will have a page of stickers and they have the ability to hand them out to kids who have been doing stuff to help our planet. Eco Warriors will help me to run pollution club. We will do this once a month and we will do lots of fun activities and find ways where we can replace plastics with
other materials. The whole purpose of this club is to educate (in a really fun and cool way) about plastic pollution and to HELP SAVE OUR PLANET.
So, if you want extra FUN at school: Karaoke, movie nights, obstacle courses and you want to do more to help our school to SAVE THE PLANET…
THEN YOU SHOULD VOTE FOR ME SIENNA, UPPER WOODFORD!

School Council Chair Speech
Hello, my name is Matilda and I would like to run for the school council chair.
I would do well in this role because I am a good leader and I care that the school is the best it can be. I am also kind and approachable, which I think are important qualities for a school council chair, as I think the school council should be a voice for all the children of the school.
I would love to make the most use of the outdoor space all year round, as well as bringing house teams together more often as I think it builds team spirit and friendships across the whole school.
I have the confidence and responsibility needed to be the school council chair, as well as wanting to give something back to the school, which has done so much for me already, in the short time I have been here.
My name is Mariella and I am going for School Council Chair.
Firstly, I would like to come up with some plans to minimize waste in our school. We could use less paper or we could recycle the paper. I will try and set a plastic free challenge where you would try to not buy any plastic for a few days- and realize how much plastic we use. I would set competitions about who can stop using plastic for the longest time and if they found it difficult. We could compete in house groups to add to the competition.
I will also make sure that the school remains bully- free and everyone would be able to speak out if they had a problem. Any friendship problems would be helped and no one will be left out.
Also, every term we could have a Woodford Valley Quiz Show and house groups would compete against each other to win a prize.
We could have musical performances every term which would encourage you to play an instrument. I think we should all step out of our comfort zone and try something new.
I would love to make this school environmentally friendly and stop climate change.
Thank you for reading and please vote for me!
I would like to be Chair of the School Council because I want to make a difference to help the environment, including everybody’s ideas and lots if other things. My main goal is to make everybody feel safe and happy! I have lots of good abilities I can use to be a good person for chair like I will always listen to other people’s ideas I am not afraid of sharing my ideas and I am not afraid to speak in front of lots of people. If I was chair, I would really like to make a difference about helping the environment. I think we should all help even if it is small things like turning the light off when you do not need it on or putting your rubbish in a bin or picking up a piece of rubbish you see on the floor (but not with your hands with gloves or a litter picker) I would also like to help everybody feel safe and happy at our school. If anybody feels unsafe or unhappy, they should be able to tell somebody. If anybody notices anyone sad, they should go and talk to them and see if they are alright. Emily
Hi everyone I’m Bobbie. I am running for school council chair this year. For those of you who don’t know me I am an animal lover and I love pasta but I can’t stand beetroot.
Now don’t get me wrong I love this school but with you and I together there are just a few things that we could improve to make it truly awesome.
One of my first points is that I have heard that the younger students in the school sometimes feel they don’t get listened to especially in lower school council. So I would like to work on that so everybody knows their voice matters.
I think it would be really cool if we were to make a photo book of our yearly best bits e.g. sporty events, shows, individual achievements. It would also have photos of the year 6 leavers. We could keep this in the library and it would be a really nice thing to look back on in the future.
Keep calm and vote for Orla for student council!
