School Council representatives have now been elected!
Come back soon for more details…
How was the school council elected?
On Monday 4th September, Years 3 to 6 attended a special assembly in the school hall where Miss Marshall explained what the school council is, what it does and why. (Year 2 children had an assembly in their classroom to discuss this.) We talked about the successes of our school council last year – including how children had helped to develop our “Keeping everyone safe online agreement” and our school mascot competition – as well as some ideas already contributed for this year. Miss Marshall explained that children who would like to volunteer for this important role would need to complete an application form for Mrs Dawtry to review as well as present to their class why they think they would be the best candidate to be chosen!
Lots of children completed an application form and handed these to their class teacher. After very careful consideration, Mrs Dawtry selected several choices per class.
On Friday 15th September, all children from Y2 – Y6 took part in our school election. They visited the library where a special polling station had been set up and learned how to vote! In classes, we have talked about democracy and how important it is to vote for the person you feel will do the best job. It was lovely to see children so animated and excited about this very important part of life.
