The Student Council have a very important role at BHS and help to make a difference in all areas of school life. Each class, from Year 3 to Year 6, has a Student Council Representative who attends weekly/fortnightly meetings, suggests ways to make BHS an even better place to be and help make important decisions about the school. Student Council Representatives are independent, reliable, enthusiastic and responsible children who work together as a team to give all children a voice within the school.
Elections take place at the beginning of each school year to appoint new Student Council representatives in each class from year 3 to year 6. The Council meets regularly at lunchtime and agrees on their own agenda for items to work on throughout the year. These could be based on messages from class, observations they have had or general ideas about how to improve life at BHS. They also consult their class about ideas and suggestions to find out their response before further discussion. The Student Council also play and important role in building intercultural understanding within the school community and are advocates in helping celebrate successful Action that takes place within and outside the school.
Over the years, the Student Council have had an excellent impact on the life at BHS, providing positive solutions and giving thoughtful feedback on important issues within school.
