Smeeth School Council has now been up and successfully running for a number of years.
Every September pupils who would like to be elected as their class representative, deliver a speech on why they want the role and what it is that would make them the best candidate. The class then vote democratically for the pupil they would like to represent them.
Each School Council representative will remain on the Council for a minimum of one term but can stay for the whole school year if they want to. The Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary are all from Eagles which is our Year 5/6 class.
The School Council have been meeting every other week and always have a lot to discuss after checking the suggestion books located in every class and working methodically through all the ideas.
The School Council recently instigated the purchase of new playground equipment which they installed carefully into the playground shed.
The feedback from the whole school has been very positive!
Well done School Council!
In the past the School Council has also:
- Organised and selected the Outdoor Classroom.
- Organised and chose the Play/Clamber Stack which forms part of the new playground.
- Visited Build-a-Bear in Canterbury and made Citizenship Bears for each class with two sets of clothing.
- Sorted out many small problems which sometimes arise.
WATCH this space for future, amazing projects!
