Our School Council is made up of pupils from each of our classes. One pupil is the School Councillor and another is the Deputy. They are voted for each academic year.
What do the School Council do?
The School Council takes part in lots of activities including:
• Listening to the views and concerns of other pupils;
• Representing these concerns to teachers and other adults;
• Coming up with ideas to help improve the school and make decisions;
• Thinking of ways to contribute locally and globally;
• Fundraise for Cedars Park and charities;
Being a school councillors a very responsible position as you have to have a lot of sensible ideas and sometimes have to do things in your lunch times. However, it is your chance to play an important part in our school community. You may feel a little nervous about putting yourself up for election but it is exciting to see what happens when people share their ideas so be brave!
If you think you would like to represent your class, the next step is the election process!
People who would like to run for School Council will present their speeches to their class explaining:
- Why they would like to be a School Council member;
- What issues they think are important;
- How they will work to represent the ideas of the class.
To make it fair, there will be a vote so that everyone can decide who will best represent them. This will be recorded on a secret ballot. You do not have to tell anyone who you have voted for!
The ballots will then be collected and counted and the newly elected School Council members will be announced at a special assembly.
The School Council meets every fortnight with Miss Suhail to discuss their ideas.
Each member of the School Council wears a badge so other pupils can identify them.
