The Collis Primary School Council has arrived, and they're on a mission. The representatives volunteered at the beginning of the term, and these pupils were democratically elected to represent their classes for this year.
During a special assembly on November 3rd, 2023, they were formally introduced to the entire school, proudly wearing their badges symbolizing their commitment to enhancing Collis.
During the meetings, they will share feedback from their classes, discuss ideas, and reflect on what's working well. Importantly, they will also suggest ideas to make Collis even better. They have a budget to implement some of these changes when agreed upon by the group.
With our Head Teacher, as their chairperson, this diverse team of 26 members is dedicated to making Collis School an even better place.
The School Council will meet regularly to discuss various matters. They will invite adults to address specific topics, such as school lunches, playtimes, and also meeting with our school governors.

Collis Primary School reached a milestone as the School Council and Play Team finalised the Collis Playground Charter. Created last term by the Play Team, the charter aims to improve break and lunch times for all pupils.
With input from the School Council (see photo), the charter emphasises positive interactions, active play, and an inclusive atmosphere. It's more than just rules—it represents a shared vision for a lively and harmonious school community.
This collaborative effort showcases Collis Primary School's dedication to creating an environment where pupils can thrive socially and emotionally. The joint initiative sets the groundwork for an enhanced and vibrant playground experience, fostering unity and well-being among our pupils.
On Friday, November 10th, 2023, our Collis school council met with our dedicated Collis governors. During this meeting, our pupils shared their thoughts on school safety, their happiness, the lessons they're learning, and their love for reading.
Collis Representatives attended the Richmond Pupil Parliament on Thursday, October 12th. It was an exceptional day, we are proud to say that our students served as outstanding ambassadors for our borough. The speeches they delivered were impeccably written. It was truly enlightening to witness them in action, engaging in thoughtful discussions, asking questions, and providing well-crafted responses. They even had the opportunity to quiz the Mayor and discover her favourite ice cream flavour!
Looking ahead, our next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, March 7th, 2024, when they will convene for our Action Day at Strawberry Hill House. Additionally, the top 10 children have been selected and will soon receive invitations to attend the opening of a local council meeting along with their parents
