At Eskdale, our school council helps play an important role in giving pupils a voice. We are voted in by our classmates, who trust that we will help to make decisions on their behalf. As council members, we help to organise events, such as Red Nose Day, and decide on how some of the school's money is spent! We also act as a voice for our classmates by having regular class council meetings where we discuss any issues that might arise and then share them with the teachers who can try to help resolve them.
We think we make a big difference, and we wear our School Council badges with pride!
Here are some of our achievements:
- we helped design the new courtyard area,
- we helped organise Sports Relief,
- counted and helped to decide how to spend the Sainsbury's vouchers,
- we helped to create some new playground rules for the school.
