Our School Council have already been working extremely hard within their new role at Brookfield Junior School. Any class member was entitled to run for the School Council and the decision in each class was made by a secret ballot. The children that wished to be considered for the School Council, had to present to their class, giving clear reasons and examples of why they were the most suitable candidate for the job.
The School Council will meet twice a term to share and discuss ideas for ways to improve our school. The representatives will record ideas and take the minutes of the meetings as a record of what has been discussed to feedback to their classes. The School Council will be responsible for: organising events, communicating ideas with their class, supporting and developing their school and being good role models.
Our school councillors hit the ground running this term! Year 3 and 4 were tasked with communicating with each other to vote for a winning design from the playground half term homework. Year 5 and 6 also had a very difficult task of voting for the winning postcard designs. This was extremely difficult and required excellent communication between all of the children.
These are the winning designs, which have been ordered and will be used from next term!
