Highters Heath School Council
Highters Heath School Council plays an important role in the school community. It helps to raise money for the school as well as supporting different charities.
Being part of the School Council is a privilege that is earned through a class vote. Voting takes place once a year with two children being picked from each class to become School Council members. Their roles in the School Council are decided at the first meeting.
The School Council members have the responsibility of being able to communicate important information to the children and teachers as well as being a good role models for the other children in the school. They have to be committed to assisting with any fundraising activities planned and attend the School Council Meetings that are arranged throughout the year.
