Eco Council at Cassiobury Junior School
Cassiobury Junior Schools’ Eco Council is a democratically elected council comprised of two children from each class across the school. They meet once a week to discuss initiatives to improve the environmental profile of the school. These initiatives include writing letters, creating posters, tree planting, requesting funding (for things like better waste management), engaging with wildlife on the school grounds and working to improve natural habitats and environmental awareness in the local community.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the Eco Counil has been unable to meet for much of the 2019/20 and 2020/21 academic years. We look forward to starting this up again once the school’s bubble system is no longer required.

Sport Relief 2018 – Friday 23rd March 2018
Over the Spring Term, the School Council worked hard to organise the 2018 Sport Relief charity event. On Friday 23rd March 2018, members of the School Council enjoyed leading the warm up for their peers before each child ran 60 metres and each class completed a mile! The fastest classes in each year group were 3 Apple, 4 Hazel, 5 Pear and 6 Beech!
However, everyone ran their best and knew that the help for the unfortunate was enough of a prize. All in all, it was a great day and a lot of fun!
24th April 2018
This week the School Council have discussed how to improve our school. The main focus was on the playground and how this could be improved! Ideas such as a path for the Pentagon and sports tournaments at lunchtimes were popular.
10th May 2018
This week the School Council have continued their discussions on improvements they would like to see happening in and around the school. Members of the School Council have started to work together with their year groups to collate ideas from discussions with their classes and other School Council members. They are working hard to create a PowerPoint presentation over the coming weeks which will be presented to Miss Sherry and possibly Mr Armstrong our School Business Manager after half term.
7th and 8th June 2018
On Thursday 7th and Friday 8th June 2018, some members of the School Council had a meeting with Miss Sherry and another with the school governors to discuss our proposals for school improvement.
The five ideas we presented were:
* A path to the Apollo Challenger
* More bins on the playground
* A water fountain on the playground
* Sports teams competing on a regular basis as part of the School
* Diversity celebrations to challenge stereotypes
The output was very positive and we hope we have made a difference!
