Our School Council represents the views of all of the children at Kilmersdon. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
What is the School Council?
The school council works to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at Kilmersdon. We look around for things that could be better and discuss what to do. Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things. We might have to talk to teachers, special visitors or people from our local community.
Who are the School Councillors?
Every year we run an election campaign to vote for two new representatives for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings and put any minutes or notes up in the classroom.
The types of discussions at the school council meetings are endless but topics may include:-
We try to be very professional in the council so we use a lot of business words. Hopefully this will help.
Agenda - a list of things to talk about
Councillor - someone who has been voted for to work for their class mates on the school council
Minutes - the notes taken during a meeting so people can see what goes on
Motion - an idea for the council to discuss
How can you help?
If you have any ideas, please speak to one of the Council Representatives or to Mrs Fagan.
You might have a good idea for improving our opportunities for learning and play around the school, a way to get involved in the Christmas or Summer Fair, an idea of a charity that might benefit from some fundraising or a way to get involved in our local community!
