Elms Farm School Council
The school council is an opportunity for all the children at Elms Farm to have a voice. Each year, in September, two children from each class in KS2 are elected to represent their peers. Children who would like to be councillors make a short speech to their classmates and this is followed by a secret ballot. In this way, the school councillors are chosen fairly and honestly.
In Autumn Term, the school council organised charity events for Children in Need (November) and Christmas Jumper Day (December). The whole community were generous, as usual, and we raised more than ever for these charities.
In Spring Term, the school council will be organising another charity day – this time, for Sport Relief. Look out for more news about how we will be raising money for this good cause AND raising our fitness levels!
Other things we will be doing during the year include holding a pupil questionnaire, making community links and helping to ensure that school becomes an even better place to attend. We will be getting involved with leading some of the Health for Life initiatives too.
Being a school councillor is a responsible role to hold. Meetings are held every few weeks and councillors are given tasks to do.
