GovernanceSchool Council


School Council School Council

Elston Hall School Council is a group of pupils that represent the voice of all pupils.

They listen to suggestions and ideas that are of importance to their peers and the good of the school.

We have an active School Council which comprises of representatives from Year 2 and Key Stage 2 year groups. They are elected annually by their classmates.

School councillors work together within their team and form links with their class, year group, staff, whole school and community to enhance, make changes or support fundraising events.

Their suggestions make a positive contribution to the school's continual development.

School Council held their first formal meeting in September and elected 6 pupils to represent Nursery, Reception and Year 1.

School Council Visit to Mayor's Parlour!

May 2017

First we went to the council chamber and we sat down in the councillors seats. When the Mayor and his wife, the Mayoress, came in we all had to stand up to welcome him. He told us lots of information and we asked him lots of questions. It was really interesting! He told us that he is the 158th Mayor of Wolverhampton and that there is a new Mayor being elected next week. He said that to be elected as the Mayor you have to have been the longest serving councillor and he was a councillor of Wolverhampton for 25 years before he was elected last year.

We then went into the Mayor's parlour and we had a drink and a biscuit and the Mayor told us lots more interesting information. After that we all got a chance to try on the Mayor's cloak and chain - it was very heavy! Once we had all had a try on, we went out onto the balcony and the Mayor showed us some of the sights of Wolverhampton. We had a really good view of the Molineux. Then we got a really special treat, we went into the Mayor's office and we sat down and he showed us some of the things he keeps in there like trophies and memorabilia from other countries. 

Finally it was time to go back to school and we all got given a goody pack with things to remember our visit. It was so much fun!
