On Friday 19th October, school council members went to visit Colchester Foodbank to find out about the great work that they do. We took donations that our pupils had collected for the foodbank. Below is our presentation that we shared with the rest of school after our visit.
WOODLAND VIEW CARE HOME
On Monday 17th December, school council members went to a local care home to present a cheque for nearly £300! Our school had raised this money towards the purchase of an interactive light table for the care home's residents who have dementia. We were able to see how the table works and learnt about its benefits.
Here to Help!
Remember to look at the School Council Notice Board and place your ideas in the suggestion box!
Hazelmere Prefects are VIPs within the school, and are selected due to being:
- Incredible role models
- Polite and kind
- Helpful- no job is too big or too small
- Very positive individuals
Prefects are here to make positive changes wherever needed.
To become a Hazelmere Prefect, pupils apply to Miss Bines.
Even though Hazelmere Prefects are always on duty, you will find them at lunchtimes; monitoring behaviour inside and outside of the school building, keeping our school a safe and happy place to be.
This year the School Council are becoming more involved in school life, making suggestions and offering ideas for the changes they feel are important
to the children of Hazelmere Junior School.

The 1st job on our busy agenda was to attend a Governors meeting and share ideas as to how the school could spend money improving lunch times and break times; allowing pupils to have more choice of activities and games.
