Priory Student Council is made up of two children from each class.
A councillor is someone who sits on the Council. It is their job to:
We have a School Council meeting once a month. The class representatives feedback from their discussions with their class and take notes of new ideas.
Over the last term the school council members have been asking their year groups their views about lunch times. They have fed back to the meeting and they have agreed a number of ideas that they would like to suggest to Mrs Youngman. They enjoy the adult led sport activities at lunch time and want these to continue. They would also like a dedicated quiet area where they can do colouring, play with fidget spinners and play card and board games. At the last meeting they wrote a formal letter to Mrs Youngman with their ideas. Unfortunately they decided the chocolate found idea would probably not be agreed as we are a healthy school so it was not included in the end!
What is the Eco-Council?
‘The work of the Eco-Council is so valuable’ says Headteacher Mrs Youngman. She is talking about the group of children who give up their time to make sure our school is eco-friendly and energy efficient. The Eco-Council make sure the children and grown-ups in our school look after the environment with care.
Today the Eco-council (and gardening club) planted trees, finally, and it got very muddy! We planted trees so we could have some privacy so that when the children play no one can see them. Trees are so important to all of us and we love them so much that Priory will watch them grow step by step. The trees will stay there for a long time even after we (the eco council) are gone. We will water them and take care of them to help them grow strong. It was hard planting them but we are very proud of our efforts. We know that we are helping to keep our planet healthy, which is what Eco-council is all about.
