School Council 2016/17
Congratulations . . .
All the children that took part in the nominations were an absolute credit to themselves, the school and their classes.
The speeches were fantastic; who knows there may be a future prime minister amongst our pupils!
We now have our school council representatives for this year. Congratulations to the following children, we know that they will do a fantastic job.
School Council visit to the Houses of Parliament
Shabana Mahmood, MP, meets with School Council
School councillors interviewed local MP, Shabana Mahmood about her work as part of their learning about the importance of democracy. Shabana commented that their questions made her think really hard! She felt that they asked very thoughtful questions. Shabana talked about the importance of school and said that it ‘helps you find your uniqueness’, ‘is to be fun and helps you become special’. School Council agrees with that view and we feel that this is what our amazing school does every day.
School Council at the Council House
Later that day, School Council met the Lord Mayor and had a tour of the Council House and visited the Council Chambers where councillors vote democratically to make decisions.
