Our School Council and Rights Respecting Council meet regularly with Mrs Abell to discuss issues in school. We report back to our classes and find out what everybody wants to do to improve our school. We also help plan events and activities for the rest of the school to enjoy and raise money for charity. We are elected at the beginning of every year.
How we were chosen
Anyone who wanted to stand as a counsellor wrote a speech at home. It had to be persuasive and say why we could be a good class representative. Qualities of a good school councillor include being a good listener, being confident, having a loud voice and being able to take on board other children’s ideas. We presented our speeches to our classes. Then all the pupils had a secret ballot and the children who received the largest number of votes for each position – School Councillor, and Rights Respecting Councillor were chosen.
