At Brabourne School we encourage our pupils to take an active role in leadership and the chance to develop their teambuilding and strategic thinking skills.
We have several pupil groups across the school. These include:
The Eco Team
These pupils from Year 6 meet termly to discuss ways of making the school ‘greener’ and to discuss wider environmental issues. They also monitor the school for litter and make sure that electricity is not wasted, by turning lights off and ensuring that computers are not left on stand-by. They have met with the Mayor of Ashford to discuss matters relating to the environment.
This year our Eco Team is Max, Ephraim, Jake.
The House Captains
These Year 6s are elected by the pupils to ‘serve’ their House Teams. They must deliver a speech to their houses before the election and they take on the role for a year. The House Captains independently organise inter-house activity days, such as dance, den building, sports, drama and other competitions. These days raise money for charities. The House Captains also help to line the younger children up at playtimes and monitor the corridors.
This year our House Captains are:
Greens – Lana/Dom
Blues – Charlotte/Julia
Reds – Jess/Connor
The School Council
We aim to give every pupil the chance to be on the school council during their time at Brabourne. The School Council meets once a term with the Headteacher and discusses ideas for improving the school. The School Council always gives brilliant ideas from the pupil perspective.
This year the school council are:
Evelyn & Jacob
Fenn & Sophia
Laurence & Chloe
Isabel & Arthur
Isobelle & Oliver
Grace & Sam
Our Ambassadors this year are Evie and George. They welcome visitors to the school and help show prospective parents and children around on tours.
The Sports Captains organise matches, brief their teams on strategies, promote sportsmanship and motivate their team members.
Our sports captains this year are:
Football – Jake
Netball – Ariel
Hockey – George
