At Melbourne Infant School our School Council represent the views of all of our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community. During the last few years it has been involved in a variety of activities and projects including designing the school logo and tyre park, refurbishing the toilets and in 2016/2017 raised funds to purchase additional outdoor equipment for the classes.
Each class elect two school councillors - one boy and one girl. Children will self elect themselves and then a vote will take place within class to elect their members. This also teaches children the democratic process of an election and is also completed anonymously. This process is completed during our PSHE lessons where the children will learn about the skills they need to be a good school councillor.
The school council will meet twice a term with Mrs Mcdonald to discuss ways in which we can make our school even better.
The School Councillors for 2018/2019 will be chosen in the Autumn Term.
