Our School Council is made up of two representatives from each year group from Year 1 to Year 6. The purpose of the School Council is to gather new ideas by consulting classes on things that will affect them in school e.g events such as raising money for charity and how to make the school environment even better.
Each class votes for their School Council representative. Their role is to discuss ideas with their class and take responsibility for bringing them back to the School Council Meetings. After meetings, the School Council members need to report back to their class.
School Council members need to be prepared to talk in a group, be a good listener, share ideas and be organised.
The year we have:
- chosen new names for the classes
- chosen charities to support
- discussed healthy eating, agreeing that breaktime snacks should be fruit and that we should explore the ideas of meat-free Mondays and pudding-free Fridays
