Student Council

The student council is part of Meridian High School’s commitment to give students a voice and to help all students make a positive contribution to school life. The student council represents the whole student body with the help of the school prefects and form leaders.

There are 16 members of the 2016-17 student council which consists of 4 members of each house ranging from year 8 – 11. The student council was democratically elected through an election process where over 80 applications were received. Below is a short clip which was shown to all students before the application process to heighten engagement surrounding the student council.

What we do:

The student council meets fortnightly to discuss everyday project updates. When the council is ready to submit a project, representatives go and present their ideas to the Head teacher and Governing Body for support.

The role of the student council is as follows:

  • to discuss concerns over facilities, rules, uniform and the curriculum;
  • to fundraise for larger whole school projects;
  • to raise concerns from their particular key stage;
  • to be involved in the interview process for new staff;

Impact of the Student Council so far:

  • Trip to Parliament

    We started the year with a fantastic trip to the Houses of Parliament where we had a tour of the buildings, walked through the chambers and finished with a debating workshop. This put us in great stead for the year and gave everyone a true insight into how a successful council should run.

  • Macmillan Bake sale

    The Macmillan Bake Sale was a huge success and we managed to raise over £100 for Macmillan Cancer Research. It was great to see the council working together and all students in the school were involved in some way either by cooking, selling or eating!

  • Christmas Boxes

    We put together 22 boxes and sent them as part of the Operation Christmas Child Christmas project. We still don’t know where our boxes were shipped to but we know they went a long way to very deserving children/

  • Salvation Army Food Parcels

    We collected food from everyone in the school for The Salvation Army who then sent food parcels to families in need at Christmas. The support we got from everybody was amazing – thank you to everyone who brought an item of food to contribute!

  • Amazing People

    We have been working with Amazing People to review their website and advise them on what students want and need from the organisation. This project is ongoing and is going to culminate in a trip to their Brighton offices so we can show them how amazing we are!

  • Sponsored Walk

    We organised a sponsored walk after school on the last Wednesday of term, it was an amazing afternoon and we raised over £300 for The Salvation Army. Thank you to everyone for coming along and supporting!

  • We Day

    As part of Croydon Young Leaders (see below) we visited WE day. We travelled to Wembley Arena and saw loads of inspirational acts including Connor Maynard, Kate Winslet and The Vamps.  Lucy Ann spoke about all the work we have achieved as part of Team London, it was incredible that she was chosen to speak in front of 16,000 people!

  • Dining Room Experience

    We have just started a project where we are going to review the dining room experience. We want everyone’s opinions and look forward to making it even more amazing!

  • YOUNG LONDON UPDATE

    Our Team London Young Ambassadors are engaging in an amazing social action project alongside St Andrews School, The Minster Junior School and Howard Primary School. Here is what they have to say.

    We started the project at City Hall in September where we met our team and came up with our social action project designed to help benefit the Croydon community. Between the four schools we decided that the environment was very important to us and over the next couple of months we assigned each other tasks to develop our project.

    We then met with a project leader at Croydon council who spoke to us about future development plans in all of the parks in Croydon. We loved the sound of the solar panelled bin crushers and decided that litter was an issue that everyone should be passionate about reducing.

    Pitch day at City Hall came about very quickly but luckily we had been rehearsing and were fully prepared. We pledged for £1000 to set up a stall at various Croydon Fairs later in the year to spread awareness about the new, environmentally friendly, self-crushing bins. These bins can hold up to 5 times more waste than a regular crushing bin! The panel seemed impressed and following a tough set of questions scrutinising our work we have been awarded the funds!

    Next we will be designing plaques for the bins and setting up at various fairs in Croydon to spread awareness of issues that are important to us. We’re even planning a Green Day across schools in Croydon so everyone is involved!
