Here in St George’s School we have a wonderful School Council. Each class has two representatives, chosen in a class election, who attend meetings to discuss matters important to the children. They are an important link between the staff and their peers. Councilors lead a class discussion and bring any ideas or concerns to the Council meetings to see what can be done.
Children in KS1 & KS2 took part in a democratic election to decide on who would represent their class in the student school council. (Just like the real Members of Parliament!)
We held a secret ballot where the children voted for a girl and a boy from their class who they felt were the best candidates. They did this by putting a X next to their name.
Then they had to post their paper into the ballot box without letting anyone see as it is a private vote.
At the end of the day, the votes were counted and the children with the majority of the votes were declared.
This years elected school council members are:
Year 2/3 : Rachael & Meelane
Year 3/4: Ivana & Blessing
Year 4/5: Ogheneyoma & Daniel
Year 5/6: Rachel & Toyin
We asked our classmates a couple of questions about St George’s School. We got some excellent replies:
