At Rowan Park our School Council allows pupils to have a voice and to share their opinions and ideas with others. At the beginning of the Autumn term, each class has a vote to decide on who will be their School Council Rep. School Council Reps attend School Council Meetings and are involved in organising and running events throughout the year.
Merseyside Special Schools
Rowan Park School are part of the Merseyside school council group which involves all of the special schools within Merseyside coming together to work on a project that the pupils have chosen. At the end of the school year the pupils gather at Liverpool Town Hall to share what they have done in order to complete or take part in the project. This year we are raising money for Liverpool's Whitechapel Centre. The School Council are currently organising a sponsored danceathon to raise money for this charity.
To raise money for the Whitechapel centre, we organised a sponsored danceathon for the whole school. We had lots of fun dressing up and dancing to our favourite songs for 26 minutes. We also raised over £300 for the charity. Thank you to everyone who supported us.
This year, the school council held an Easter raffle to raise money for the leaver's school prom. Thank you to everybody who helped by donating eggs and buying tickets. We raised an amazing £250!
Board Game Club
Through a survey at the beginning of this year, the school council heard that many pupils in the school would like the opportunity to attend a club in school and a board game club was the most popular choice.
Every Wednesday afternoon, school council have invited Secondary pupils to come and play new games and make friends over lunch time.
Anti-bullying Week - 13th-17th November
To support this year's theme, 'All different, All Equal', the school council organised an odd socks day. Staff and pupils wore bright and colourful socks. We had our annual anti-bullying march around the RAP and classes shared their posters they had made in class throughout the week.
To raise money towards for School Council funds, we organised Halloween discos for primary, secondary and sixth form students. We had a lot of fun dressing up and dancing. Members of the school council helped with the music, decorations and tuck shop.
