Ready to Teach, Ready to Learn
Our School Council is a group of pupils who are elected to act as the official voice of all the pupils. We believe that it's hard for one person to make changes. We all work together and or school council give pupils one voice!
All pupils in Years 3-6 have the opportunity to put themselves forward to become a school councillor and represent their class. Class elections are held and all children have the opportunity to vote. The children in each class who have the highest amount of votes becomes their class representative within the school council. New school councillors are announced in a special whole school assembly and displayed on the school council display board.
Councillors go to school council meetings and take part in discussions. The councillors elect a chairperson, secretary and time keeper. The chairperson runs the meetings and the secretary takes the minutes, with the time keeper ensuring that all meetings are focused and within time constraints.
Councillors bring the views of classmates to the school council meeting. They also let their class know what was discussed and share feedback.
