What is Margaret Wix School Council?
At Margaret Wix we have an elected School Council. Each class elects two children every term to be their class representative. The representatives are there to be the voices of the class and attend School Council meetings.
The School Council meet every half term and discusses ideas for improving the school. They also try to raise money for good causes.
If you are a member of Margaret Wix Primary School and you have an idea that you would like the School Council to discuss; then write it on a post-it note and put it it on the display outside Mr Johnston's office.

Cake sale success! 01/03/2019
Due to great effort, fantastic advertising and enthusiasm from all School Council members, we made a whopping £225.56 at the cake sale. We would like to thank everyone who contributed in anyway, either by donating cakes or coming along to buy one. We are extremely lucky to have such supportive families.
The school council will now gather ideas from their peers, to decide exactly how the money raised should be spent. This will then be discussed in a meeting, where we shall vote on the suggestion that will fully benefit the children.
Again, thank you to all involved including the teachers and parents who stepped in to help, much appreciated.
Mrs Ralph & School Council
Meeting 28/01/2019 - Organising our first event
Today we met at lunch time to share our ideas and thoughts on our first event together. Lots of fantastic ideas were shared and after a great discussion we decided that a cake sale would be a lovely thing to do on the last day of term. So the school council have planned a cake sale for Friday 15th February at 3:30pm, in the hall. They have been busy designing and creating posters and will start to spread the word in their classrooms. Support for this event is welcome from everybody around school, so keep an eye out for a letter coming home soon. As all the money raised will go to school, the school council will then gather ideas from peers, on how it should be best spent.
Happy new year!
New year, new term means new School Council members. Last week the school council were re-elected by their peers, voting took place as to who the children thought would make the best representative for their class. I would like to congratulate the new recruits and welcome the following on board:
Year 1 - Teah and Elliott
Year 2 - Leo and Ruby
Year 3 - Hannah and Morgan
Year 4 - Amy and Yousaf
Year 5 - George and Layla
Year 6 - Rosie and James
I am looking forward to seeing what events and ideas we come up with this term to make our school an even better place to be.
16/11/2018 Pyjama day for Children In Need
I would like to express how much the school council were impressed by everyone's effort in coming to school in their pyjamas. The school council delivered a fantastic mini presentation that they had prepared including all facts and figures from the past BBC Children In Need events. The organisation, enthusiasm and effort from the whole of the council made this even a great success. The School council chose to wear pyjamas to raise money this time and from spreading the word and having a positive approach, we raised a great big £202 to help those in need.
I would personally like to thank each member of the school council for being a pleasure to work with, their dedication to our school and care for other charities makes me extremely proud to work with them.
I can't wait to see what our next event will be.
At lunchtime today we met to prepare a short presentation for assembly this week. The children had to use their research skills to find new information to share with the rest of the school. The children did a great job at finding out how much money BBC Children In Need has made since it began in 1980, who and which charities our money helps, how much money was raised last year and various fundraising ideas. We then made cue cards to help us speak in order in assembly.
15/10/2018 - Children in need meeting
Today school council met and finalised ideas for Children in Need this year. The children decided that they would like to come in pyjamas and bring in a donation of £1. We shared our thoughts on why doing this kind of event is important and how to make it a success. The school council are now fully aware on what any money raised would mean to children who are not as fortunate as we are. We then spent the rest of our meeting designing posters to put around school to promote our event.
This week the School Council had a very important job at taking part in an interview process. They used their responsibility to discuss and decide on several questions that they would ask the candidates, Mr Johnston was really impressed to see how creative and useful the questions were. On the day, the children were very punctual and on time for the interviews and were extremely professional when asking their questions. House points were awarded for all their hard work.
24/09/2018 - First meeting
Today we had our first school council meeting where we introduced ourselves and got to know one another. We got straight to work on a very important job ready for Wednesday. Mr Johnston was impressed by the collaboration and team work from all children, and their ideas on events for the term ahead.
We look forward to sharing the ideas with you soon.
