School Council


The School Council is an important element of ‘child voice’ at our school. It enables our children to share ideas and to raise issues and concerns.


How are School Council Representatives elected?

Each class has 2 representatives on the School Council, who are chosen by a democratic secret ballot of the members of their class. If someone is interested in being a councillor, they put their name forward then give a short speech on why they will be a good School Councillor. The children in the class then vote for the children that they think will perform this role well. Once elected, each councillor has their photo displayed on our School Council board.


What happens in the meetings?

The School Council representatives are an important link between the other children in their classes and the adults at the school and ensure that key ideas and messages are communicated and discussed so that everyone is listened to and feels involved. At the meetings, children discuss and vote for suggestions to make the school, and our community, a better place. All meetings are supported by Mrs Eraslen.
