School Council

Our School Council is an important part of what makes River Primary School a democratic and inclusive community. Children from Years 1-6 are encouraged to nominate themselves at the start of each year. Each class then votes for the person they think will best represent their class. Children meet weekly to discuss matters from around the school, organise fundraising projects and to share their ideas.

Meet our new School Council Reps 2023-2024

Term 1


In our meetings this term we have been talking about our BIG fundraiser. We want to raise money to buy some new playground equipment. Class reps have discussed ideas with their classmates and shared them at our most recent meeting. We have emailed all of the ideas to Mrs Alliston and we are looking forward to hearing what she thinks of our this space!

Term 2

We were very excited to find out that the big fundraiser was going to be a BOUNCEATHON! We all collected lots of sponsors and on Friday 10th November we bounced as fast as we could for 1 minute. Our sponsor money started pouring in and just when we thought we had it all, more arrived. We raised an AMAZING £5335.61!!!!! Thank you to all of our sponsors for helping us to raise so much money - we can't wait to see the fantastic new playground equipment that it buys.

Term 3


During our meetings this term, we have been discussing how we can continue to support Dover foodbank. In December, years 3 and 5 took part in the 12 Days of Christmas Giving with children bringing in donations for the foodbank. We collected enough food to support 8 people over Christmas and we would like to support even more people in the year ahead.

We have talked with our classmates and have decided that we will hold collections before the Easter holiday and the summer holiday, as well as the Christmas holiday.
