Every class in Years 3-6 has chosen two children to be their representatives on the School Council. The School Council meets regularly to discuss suggestions put forward by the respective classes. They are the voice of the pupils and are expected to be good role models and ambassadors for the school.
School Counsellors need to have the following personal qualities so that they are:
- Friendly and approachable
- Good at listening to everyone
- Able to remember things
- Honest and sensible
These are the things the School Council rep needs to do:
- Attend meetings, turn up on time and be interested.
- Bring their notebook to the meeting.
- Look after the notebook and put agendas and minutes inside
- Listen to the views and opinions of the class and bring them to the meeting.
- Report everyone’s ideas and opinions even if they are not their own.
- Bring ideas to the meeting that will make the school a better place.
- Feedback information to their class – ask their teacher for a time to do this.
- Wear their badge so people know that they are a rep
- Collect views of pupils from their classroom and the playground
- Present some assemblies with support from Mr Sutherland, Miss Briggs and Mrs Cox.
- Represent the school at local meetings.
