School Council 2023 2024
Make sure you voice is heard!
What is the School Council?
The school council is a group of children who work to make improvements to the school and our school environment. We look at things we could improve and hold weekly meetings to discuss what we want to do. We all get a chance to speak and give our opinions and when we can’t agree we vote on the best ideas. We take minutes from the meeting and we display them on the School Council display board and we email a copy to Mrs Coolican who then gives us her thoughts and opinion.
How often does the School Council meet?
School Council meet every other Friday at 1.00 in the Year 5 classroom. All classes from Year 1 to Year 6 have 2 representatives who take part in the discussions to ensure that every child in school has a means of sharing their ideas. If you have a question you can speak to your class representative or write it on a post it and put it in the suggestion box.
Who are the School Councillors?
Each year we run an election campaign and the children in each of the classes vote for 2 new representatives. These children speak at School Council meetings about things their class is interested in. They also report back to their class after each meeting.
