The school council team is elected at the start of term so that each key stage and House at BGS are represented. The students applying for the role need to demonstrate their desire to be heard, to represent the voices of their peers and to make positive changes at BGS.
Regular updates of school council initiatives are posted here:
Update for 2017/2018
The School Council has chosen the Tanzanian Children’s Fund and Sports Relief as our charities this academic year. There will be “Old School” sporting events such as the egg & spoon race plus a non-uniform day during Sports Relief week in March 2018.
Our current Year 8 students have established Pen Pals with children in Tanzania and we look forward to continuing this whilst raising money for this great charity too.
Update for 2016/2017
BGS raised over £4,200 this academic year for our student-selected charities of Cancer Research and Demelza hospice for children, as well as other charities including Macmillan, Fairtrade Fundraising and Children in Need. This is a huge achievement from the whole school and staff. Well done!
