Hi, we are Nivani and Erin and we are the School Council co-chairs.
There are twelve members of the School Council at the moment, and two main roles.
There is the Chair Person, who is voted by the children and required to prepare a speech. We both received the same number of votes, which enables us to share the role – we take turns each week to lead the meetings. This is a rare occurrence and has only happened once!
The second main role is the secretary, who jots down what we speak about each week, and what we need to take action. We then tell the class about what we have been doing that week and ask for feedback and their opinions.
So far this year, we have been discussing monitors, the Hygiene Bank (which we have managed to start up again) and filled up the box. We have achieved getting a new Buddy Bench from the PFA, where children can now go to in search of a friend that can help. We have also managed to organise a fundraising event for the people of Ukraine.
We have worked hard and made an amazing impact so far, this year, and we hope to carry on.
