Our School Councillors
In September each class held nominations and voted for two classmates to become school councillors. When choosing their candidates they had to think about who would be a good role model, who follows our school ‘Green Family Values’, who would have good ideas, who would work well as part of a team and who would be confident to speak out on behalf of other children.
As a result the following children were chosen:
F2 Adventure Squad: Charlie S
F2: The Explorers: Rocco
Year 1/2 The Incredibles: Nevaeh
Year 1/2 The Incredibles: Rossi
Year 1 Avengers: Evie
Year 1 Avengers: Jackson
Year 2 Eagles: Grace B
Year 2 Eagles: Oscar D
Year 2 Griffins: Lili C
Year 2 Griffins: Charlie P
The school council have an important role within school. They are responsible for helping the school staff to gather ideas and information from their classmates regarding many different topics. They take turns each month to update class attendance boards and they feedback any ideas or suggestions from their classmates at council meetings.
In our introduction meeting we introduced ourselves to each other and all the children received their School Council pin badge. We discussed what the role of School Councillor involves. The children came up with some great ideas about what personal qualities a School Councillor should have.
In our next meeting we will start the selection process for Playground Buddies.
Autumn Term: 2017
The school council introduced themselves to each other and we discussed our new role as school councillors and what it involved.
Our first challenge was to choose ten new playground buddies, two for each morning playtime, we talked about what qualities a good Playground Buddy should have.
The Councillors then took back a 'sign up sheet' for anyone who wanted to apply.
The following week each councillor brought their list to the meeting and we discussed each candidate and voted for the ones who we thought we be best for the role. The children had some great ideas and used their reasoning skills well to come up with 10 great new playground buddies.
