School Council


At Henry Cavendish, we have a very active school Council. These are children that have been elected by their peers to represent the views of their class. Our School Council has elected children from Years 2 to 6 at both Balham and Streatham. They are elected annually by their class and the School Council meets with the School Council lead teacher once a fortnight. We believe that this experience of involvement and responsibility in their own school community gives the children an invaluable opportunity to develop as informed and caring citizens in a democracy.

Our School Council have been responsible for significant changes and improvements to our school including:

  • Renovated school toilets
  • Upgraded drinking fountains
  • Water bottles
  • School rucksacks
  • Scooter racks
  • Improved school dinner procedures
  • Suggestions for new school library books

The School Councillor’s term runs from January to December with elections in January.
