We publicise the work of the School Council around school. We have suggestion folders to ask the pupils what they think they would like to see happen in our school.
During our meeting the school councillors created an 'Advent of Kindness.' Each day of December the class representative will choose a person to pull an act of kindness from the advent calendar that they need to try and complete that day. We want to continue the fantastic work from our 'Random Acts of Kindness' week and spread kindness and joy throughout December.
The School Council met today to discuss their role in Random Acts of Kindness Week. They have been role models and are looking for anyone who they think has been kind. They also discussed the Grear Westerhope Bake Off and discovered that they are going to be responsible for choosing their classes entries. Fantastic work today everyone!
This week's school council meeting was thinking about ways to be kind to each other. Mrs McManus came along to the meeting and videoed our ideas, ready to show in assembly during 'Random Acts of Kindness' week beginning 14th November.
Can you think of other ways that we can be kind to each other?
School council members will be making posters to put up around school to promote ways of being kind.
During this week's meeting, school councillors fed back the fantastic ideas their peers had about 'How to improve children's times table knowledge in school.' Take a look at just some of the ideas the children had:
These ideas are fantastic and we hope to implement lots of these thoughts very, very soon! Watch out for photographs of the school councillors at work, making Westerhope Primary School even better!
The school council is made up of student representatives from each class from Years Two to Six. The pupils attend regular meetings where their views and ideas can be shared. They make decisions on the things that are important to them and the class they represent and work together with the staff to ensure that pupils have a real voice during their time at Westerhope.
