Our aim as a School Council is to make our school an even better place for all children. In September the children in each class have an election to select 1 representative for each class. Children put themselves forward for election and a secret ballot is held.
Representatives must be friendly and approachable and take everybody’s ideas and suggestions seriously. You have to be confident and happy to speak in front of your class.
In the playground there is a display which shows each class representative. Meetings are held once a month. The council then report back to their classmates what has happened in the meeting. One of the most important jobs is setting a good example and trying to follow the School’s Golden Rules at all times. All the children agree that it is well worth having a School Council because they feel that they have a say in how Ayios Nikolaos Primary School is run.
