Our School Council is made up of two children from every class (Reception -Y6). We have to campaign to our classmates to be elected like candidates do in real elections. We talk together at the School Council meetings regularly with Mrs Dwane and Mrs Smith, we share ideas and make decisions about projects and events and help promote them around school.
We also try to help our community and try out new ideas to make our school a better and safer place. After our meetings we write minutes, so we remember the decisions that we have made.
To be a good school councillor you must be a good listener, be fair and approachable. We have to listen to our classmate’s ideas and opinions, so we can bring them to the Council. However, we also have to inform our school friends about our events and successes in school assemblies, in the school newsletter and on our website.
