What is the School Council?
The school council works to make improvements to the school. We look around for things that could be better and discuss what to do. Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things. Sometimes we have to talk to teachers or other pupils about changes we want to make.
Who are the School Councillors?
Each year we run an election campaign to vote for two new representatives for each class. A good school councillor will speak at school council meetings about things that their class are interested in or any concerns they may have. They will also tell their class about what is happening during school council meetings.
