Marsh Gibbon School Council 2022-23 Pupil voice is highly regarded within our school. One of the ways pupils can express their ideas is via the school council. The school council meets fortnightly to share and discuss views. Each class across the school has 2 main representatives that have been elected by their peers.
The children are enthusiastic members and are keen to fulfil their role as a Councillor.
What do the children think about school council? -our children think it is important that as a councillor they represent everyone in school and carry ideas forward from their peers in class. -our children believe they should be an outstanding role model to others in school, and wear a badge to be easily recognised. -our children think it is important to raise money for school and other school supported charities both in the local community and the wider world. -our children say that school council is fun and they enjoy coming to meetings to discuss important things.
