The Kimberley School Student Council are a chosen and trusted group who regularly discuss ideas and improvements for The Kimberley School. They are from years 7 – 11 and to apply each year, you must fill in an application about why you deserve to be in the School Council and then the Head Boy and Girl of Sixth Form select the successful applicants.
The School Council is run by a dedicated member of staff and together we plan assemblies and help make the school a better place. We regularly debate topics suggested by students and discuss upcoming events. We take action to make sure that students are happy and the contributions we have made to the school have already helped many pupils.
We meet with the Head Girl and Boy to discuss our ideas, which they pass on to Mr George (The Head Teacher of the Kimberley school.) An example of a contribution we have made to the school this year is putting pegs on the back of toilet doors, as it was requested by many pupils and we made it happen.
Here in Student Council, we also partly govern what happens in some of the school assemblies including: Black History Month, International Men’s Day, Drug Awareness, Diversity, LGBTQ+ history month, and International Women’s Day. We have made a large contribution to all of these assemblies and many more to come. We converse as a group and collectively decide what the assembly should include. We also review student feedback and surveys, then adapt and change our ideas based upon the students’ ideas.
If you have any ideas or suggestions, please feel free to come and speak to us and we will do our best to make your voice heard.
