The school council is made up of 2 children from Years 1-6. Each member of the school council has been voted for by their class. It is a very honourable role and as a group they are responsible for lots of different school based activities and events.
The School Council meets every three weeks with Miss Davis, and sometimes School Governors join meetings. Children use the School Council to put forward ideas from their class Council meetings. A majority vote system is used, so that decisions are made fairly. If you are a member of it you have to do lots of important things to help the school such as: raising money, raising awareness of events, helping in assemblies and at different events and being role models.

Wellbeing week 2019
The whole school took part in a week surrounding wellbeing. We looked at mindfulness, the importance of online safety, and the school council helped introduce brain breaks across the whole school after a visit to another local school.
The school council have visited another local primary school to observe and learn about 'Brain Breaks'. The children listened to one of the schools teachers explain about the brain and why we need to let it have a break sometimes. We then spoke to some Year 5 children about brain breaks, what they enjoy and why they are invaluable in school day. The children then went into two classes to observe and join in with a brain break. It was a fantastic visit, with lots of information shared and learnt. We are all looking forward to introducing them at Our Lady and the school council will help with this.
The School Council also supported the fundraising for our bounce-a-thon for Super Seraph!
