We are a group of children from Key Stage One and Key Stage Two classes. We were voted onto the School Council by other children in our class. Children in Oak Class had to explain why they thought they would be a good school councillor.
We meet regularly and discuss School Council in class during circle time and have a brief discussion before our meetings.
In our class discussions we talk about ways to improve our school so that more people feel happy about it. We help other children and parents, including the locals, to tackle problems as they arise.
The School Council also ensures fairness for all and sets a good example to other children.
Currently, the School Council and Eco Council are collaborating to make a significant improvement to recycling in our school community. We have raised awareness, organised better recycling facilities and are now able to recycle plastics and food in each classroom, as well as cardboard and paper.
