At Instow School we have an active school council who are made up of pupils from each class. We vote for different members each year and the Year Six pupils are voted in to the positions of Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary. The Chair has to produce an agenda each meeting and the Secretary produces minutes after the meetings. Other members report back to their classes, the things that we talk about. We meet fortnightly to discuss issues that have been brought to our attention. Over the years we have helped raise money for many charities including The Children's Hospice, Children in Need, Sports Relief, are sponsoring a child in Africa to go to school, helped organise a Table Top Sale, written to the school neighbours and council about certain issues, stood up in assembly and given messages, asked for a water fountain on the bottom pitch and lots more.
