This year our school council has 12 members. Each class has elected a representative.
The school council meet regularly with Mr Hill to discuss any issues that may have arisen and and make suggestions about ways forward. They are responsible for implementing the ideas and improvements that have been agreed.
Hillborough Junior School Council always listens to pupils' ideas, queries and concerns and takes the right action to make our school the best it can possibly be. We are determined to make our school and our community a better place for everyone. We are proud of our diversity and will always try to establish a warm and welcoming school that promotes excellent behaviour, high aspirations and a healthy lifestyle.
MAIN AIMS 2017-18
- Make the playground a better place by encouraging good behaviour, running clubs, selecting monitors, playleaders, etc.
- Organise more Inter-house competitions (talent show, spelling bee, etc).
- Improve After School Clubs for sports and other actitivies
OUR NEW SCHOOL COUNCIL
Meet our new School Council members! The School Council includes a member of each class who get together regularly to have meetings and discuss important issues to do with the school. The Councillors feed back to their class and take their ideas to each meeting. They will also be asked to feedback to members of the Senior Leadership Team so that we can all work together to make our school a better place.
INTERVIEWS FOR LUNCH TIME MONITORS
Recently, the year 6 school councillors have been holding interviews for upper school children who wished to help run a club and monitor the doors at lunch times. We thank every child who attended an interview as all them were willing to give up two play times a week. We also congratulate every child who attended as every pupil showed at least one of the Hillborough values; in particular passion and determination and one child was particularly honest in answering the questions put to them despite the answers not being what the year 6’s were quite looking for in a new monitor! A massive well done to the following children who will be our play time monitors for 2017-2018:
- Amber Ahmed
- Eugene Manyo
- Jibraeel Kazmi
- Joseph Mukadi
- Nazem Sheraz
- Lucy Sullivan
- Abbie Bailey
- Maria Khanom
- Naimah Adabra
- Kyoh Deroy-Facey

SCHOOL COUNCIL AWARD!
We were invited by the Rt Hon John Bercow to enter the Speaker's School Council Awards. The School Council decided to enter, with the fruit tuck shop initiative as their project. They worked as an impressive team to set up and run the tuck shop, encouraging all members of our school community to, 'Get on the way to 5 a day'.
The judges were impressed and we received a highly commended accolade and boast another badge to display on our website.
SCHOOL COUNCIL PUPILS IN HARMONY
Our School Council children have always been actively involved with other schools and we have also been hosts and showed other school councils around our school. One event we took part in was "Pupils in Harmony" which involved the School Councils from 4 different schools getting together as part of a Schools Linking Day. We worked together to create a big piece of art work that we then each took a part of back to our own schools to keep on display. When the four pieces are joined together they create an image that includes the Luton in Harmony badge, logos from the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and also the four School badges from those that participated. We had a great time and we hope to make the event a regular thing.
