Here at Bowburn Primary School we have an active School Council who were elected by the pupils in the Autumn term. They meet regularly to share the views of the children with staff.
Our School Council were recently elected. All the children from Year 1 to Year 6 had the opportunity to put themselves forward for nomination. They had to prepare a short speech to share with their classes and then children voted ( in secret in the hall !) to choose their representatives. Mr Collinson, our Chair of Governors , came in to school to present the School Council with their badges and announce the successful candidates.
The first meeting with Mrs Foster was held on Monday 22nd November, where the children talked about their roles and what would be happening on School Council this year. Some children had been on School Council before ! One thing that was discussed and agreed was the charity that we would support next term- the Great North Air Ambulance. Children will share this with their classes soon.
The School Council members are:
Starfish Class: Joel S. Seahorses Class: Manvir B.
Dolphins Class: Danny W. Sharks Class: Clark M.
Robins Class: Darcie D. Wrens Class: Freddie J.
Swallows Class: Oliver D. Swifts Class: Eva B.
Owls Class: Benjamin D. Ospreys Class: India J.
Kites Class: Faye W. Kestrels Class: Olivia M.
If you have any suggestions or ideas , see your school council representative and they can bring them to the next meeting !
