A friendly school

Here are some of the suggestions shared at school council:

Be kind

Be helpful

Take responsibility

School council priorities

After lots of discussion in school and class council it was decided that school council would concentrate on 3 main priorities:

  1. Being a friendly school
  2. Really enjoying our learning
  3. Having lots of fun at break times.

This blog will share what the classes think via school council but please feel free to add your own idea and comments.

Meet the new leaders of your School Council

Orion (6M) is the new chair person. He says that he is confident to lead the council and that he is good at shaping ideas. He will listen to others because he cares and is ready to step up to the plate.

Ihtisham (6D) is the new vice chair. He says that he is also confident and willing to do as others ask him. He is more than ready to step in for the chair if necessary.

Sophie (6D) is the new secretary to the council. She says that she can use the blog and write really fast.

Aminah (6M) is the new treasurer because she can be trusted with money, help make the right choices about which charities to support or how to spend the money and she can compile accurate reports.


The next time you see them around school say hello to them.
