School Council

The School Council is elected at the beginning of each school year (Mid October). There are generally two representatives from each class in year 2, 3 and 4.   Every child is encouraged to stand for election to the Council.  Prospective candidates make a short presentation to the class and then a secret ballot is held.   The boy or girl with the most votes in each class becomes a councillor for the next year.

The newly elected School Council introduces itself to the rest of the school during an assembly, when they are presented with their badges.   All pupils are encouraged to put forward their suggestions and ideas to the school council either by speaking to the councillors or by using the suggestions box.

The role of School Council is:

  • To improve things around the school and the environment
  • To find out what children want in school
  • To make the school a better place to be
  • To ask pupils what they would like to make the school better
  • To raise funds for school projects and the wider community

Additionally, we have an International sponsor child called Micah; Micah very often sends correspondence to the children and sometimes the School Council reply on behalf of the school. You can see more about Micah here : International Sponsorship
