Our School Council is run by Miss Owen and consists of 2 children from each class. We talk to other children and staff around the school to gather ideas about how we can improve the school environment. We all have different roles in school council including a chairperson, a vice chairperson, a treasurer and a secretary, who takes the minutes of the meetings. We hold meetings to discuss issues or events that arise in our school.
The School Council encourages children to make decisions that will help improve the school. Every child has the opportunity to voice their ideas as it’s our job to listen to everyone. Having a school council gives us more responsibility around the school. It lets us have a say about how we think we can make our school better.
School Council has been a part of our school for many years now. They have organised other events to raise money for charities and for our school.
