We have one boy and one girl elected on to the School Council from each class. The latest election took place mid-October. Mrs Baptiste meets with the councillors every few weeks and they have a theme for each meeting. Recent meetings have looked at how we can improve playtimes, children’s views about our “Awards Assemblies” and preferences for school meals.
We were delighted to receive £1,000 from the Mother and Toddler group at St Monica’s Parish and the children had lots of ideas of how it could be spent. We have decided on the following: fish for the fish tank, a painted football area for the infant playground, long skipping ropes and hoola-hoops for the juniors and new weather-proof posters to brighten up the infant playground.
The children have been very successful in the past and have persuaded us to spend lots of money on developing our playgrounds and also refurbishing all of our toilet facilities! Remember to speak to your class councillors to make sure your ideas are brought to the meetings.
School Council Food Tasting
The school council had requested a food tasting session in advance of the new school dinner menu, which started on 23rd November. Street noodles were a hit! Our menu has been rearranged slightly following the children’s feedback.
