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:
Rosen Class: Isadora Hallett and Charlie Gibbens
Morpurgo Class: Balkis Ogundare and Gabriel Zecchin
Berry Class: Rachael Sadiku and William Fry
Shakespeare Class: Hayley Eliah and Jaylan Sutherland
Welcome to Nathan Aranganathan who is the new male representative for Rosen class. Sadly Charlie has moved to Dorset.
School Council Visited the Civic Suite
On Friday 17th Janaury School Council went to the Civic Suite. We met members of Lewisham Council and shared our views about what can be done to improve our local community and lives of those living in Lewisham. We learnt about elections and how local government works.
Children in Need
On Friday 15th November 2019 we iced cakes and had a cake sale to raise money for Children in Need.
