Our School Councillors for 2021-2022

School Council Selevino Writing Competition


School Council have been very busy in this week judging their recent Selevino writing competition. School Council challenged children to write to Selevino about themselves and their class. Children were encouraged to think about what made their class special, interesting facts about themselves, and to illustrate their entries. School Council were delighted with the great number of entries and had the difficult task of picking a winner from each class. The winning entries were posted to Selevino in Mozambique to tell him more about our school, and the competition winners were awarded special prizes by School Council in our Friday Awards Assembly! 

African Themed Afternoon


At the end of the Spring term School Council organised an African themed afternoon to help children learn more about the continent of Africa and the country where Selevino lives, Mozambique. We sponsor Selevino through World Vision to give him access to education and the children enjoy receiving regular updates via post and video about his life there. During the School Council event Key Stage 2 were visited by the Telford African and Afro-Caribbean Resource Centre, who ran workshops for the children on African culture, whilst Key Stage 1 and EYFS enjoyed art, music, dance and geography activities. Mrs Perri also prepared some delicious exotic fruits for us to try at lunchtime. The afternoon was really successful and the School Council did a fantastic job of organising everything!

Raising the Profile of Selevino
At Mount Pleasant Primary School we sponsor a pupil who attends school in Mozambique, Africa through World Vision. His name is Selevino. School Council are working to raise the profile of Selevino in school. This poster gives you more information about him.

Christmas Festive Bake Sale - A huge well done to all of School Council for advertising, baking and selling at the festive bake sale. Over £240 was raised for school funds!

To raise awareness of anti bullying week the School Council have created some ‘kindness’ rocks. They have written positive messages on the rocks and they will be placed around school for children to read.

The School Council have joined with the Eco Council to create some posters and a video to remind the whole school to keep our school clean and tidy.

Children have enjoyed sharing their classes suggestions this week. Lots of great ideas!

Some of our KS2 School Council Reps met with Mr Bartlett - Shropshire Council Crime Prevention Officer and Councillor Jeff Anderson. 

Our pupils wanted to find out more about what local government does.  They asked some great questions, such as ‘What does Shropshire Council do?’ and ‘What are the biggest problems for the council at the moment?’ 

They found out LOTS of information which we’ll share in assembly on Monday.  Well done everyone.


Our School Council September 2019 - July 2021

We would like to say a huge thank you to all of our School Councillors who have completed this role over the last year-two years. It has been a challenging 18 months but you have all taken pride in your role and we are all very proud of how you have represented the school throughout your time on the School Council. 

Due to the COVID 19 Pandemic and School Closure for the majority of children we have decided to allow the current School Council representatives to continue until the end of the school year. 
To ensure every class had a representative we had to complete an election in Darwin, Severn and Porthill. Welcome to our new members...


Our School Council for 2019-20 (Continuing until the end of the school year) comprises of the following members:

Our job is to listen to our peers and inform them of new initiatives throughout the school year. We have a very important job to do in influencing decisions and putting forward pupils ideas for discussion. 


Making a difference


We meet on a regular basis so that we are able to share our ideas, thoughts and issues about school. Our aim is to make our school an even better and more enjoyable place for us to attend.  Every class has a suggestion box which the rep brings to the meeting and shares the ideas that have been added to it.  


  • more homework
  • new footballs for break time
  • ketchup with school dinners
  • more charity events



School Council 2018/19
Together we made a difference...
We have helped to make some important decisions. 
For example,  we chose the creatures that are going to made for the MAT Parliament Plastic Pixel Art Competition.  We also decided on some options for the theme for our new library.  We gave the classes these choices and everyone voted for their favourite.  From all the options we suggested, the most popular choice was a 'space' theme. 




Throughout the year we organise several fundraising events to support causes which include Children in Need and Comic Relief/Sport Relief.

This year we decided to go with the national theme for Children in Need and came to school wearing spots.  We sold Children in Need merchandise and Pudsey helped Mrs Benge to give out certificates in assembly.



Find out more...

Your School Council have a noticeboard in the hall, which allows us to keep all pupils updated with our work. We will regularly update this site with a summary of our latest initiatives, so 'watch this space'.


Remember if you have an idea or suggestion, write it on a piece of paper and put it in your class suggestion box or talk to your class rep.


Thank you

You School Council
