School Council 2018/2019

School councillors are elected to represent their class. They act as a mouthpiece between their classmates and the Head Teacher and Deputy Head Teacher. Through regular class meetings, suggestion boxes and school council meetings they are able to make suggestions to move the school forward and feedback any ideas, problems or requests.

They ensure that the children’s voice is heard.

They also help with the organisation of charity events such as Macmillan and Children in Need  by making sure that information gets through to class teachers and pupils and by putting up posters etc when needed. They are responsible for collecting charity donations from their classmates.

They do a great job. Well done School Council!

Our 2018-2019 School Councillors 

Visit to the Mayor's Parlour

‎On the 8th October, some of our School Councillors visited the Mayor's Parlour in Oldham. They each came prepared with intelligent, thoughtful questions and learnt a great deal about the Mayor's role and responsibilities as a representative of Oldham. This years Mayor is Councillor Javid Iqbal BA (Hons).

The children had the opportunity to feel the weight of the Mayoral Chains and view the silverware on display. Whilst in the Council Chambers, the children asked questions and each had time to talk as if in a real Council Meeting.

Later the mayor invited the children into his Office and they had refreshments and an informal chat about his previous jobs and the charities he is representing this year.
The Mayor complimented the children on their exemplary, mature behaviour and presented them each with a special notebook, pen and pencil.

Our children were terrific ambassadors for Hodge Clough Primary School.
Well done School Council! We are very proud of you.
