The school council is made up of 2 children from Years 1 - 6. Children who would like to be a council representative put themselves forward and then the other children in the class vote for them. This year, voting took place on international day of Democracy- pupils learnt about democracy before pupils prepared short speeches to explain why they should be on the school council.
The school council meet termly and their main aim is to organise fundraising events for the school as well as for charities and other good causes. Previous accomplishments have included:
Year 1: Isabella and Tommy
Year 2: Jesse and Daisy
Year 3: Bear and Evie
Year 4: Oliver and Lillie-Mae
Year 5: Poppy and Shaw
Year 6: Jacob and Layla
We know that you are going to do a fantastic job to help us improve our school!
We were very excited to be voted to represent our class and we enjoyed our first meeting!
"We were surprised and shocked to be chosen but we really enjoy being on the school council." - Oliver and Lillie-Mae Year 4
For our first school council meeting, we invited members of last year's school council to meet with us to help us learn more about our role. We also discussed our aim for this term and what we would like the school PTA to raise money for. We had some ideas of our own, such as improving playground equipment and getting more iPads, but we will discuss these with our class to see if they have other ideas that we could share in our next meeting.
We were also very excited to learn that, in March next year, Key Stage Two school council members (from this year and last) will have the chance to visit the Houses of Parliament to learn more about the People's Parliament. We will be learning about how different opinions are considered, as decisions are made at parliament, and also developing our understanding of the history of democracy with a focus on how individuals and groups can bring about change. We are all very excited about the trip!
