Our School Council meet weekly to discuss issues important to all the pupils at Fleet. The members of the council talk to their class and collect ideas and information to feedback to the council. They also take a lead on fundraising for our three focus charities and organise events for these. The School Council also have specific projects that they work on throughout the year.
Last year School Council attended a training course at Camden to learn what makes a successful School Council. They shared ideas with other school councillors about the kinds of projects they wanted to do over the year and learned about some of the different roles and responsibilities school councillors can have. They also practised chairing meetings and taking minutes of the meetings.
Over the year School Council planned improvements to the Junior playground quiet area and took responsibility for developing this area.
School Council elections will take place soon for the new school year. Start to think about whether you would like to represent your class as a school councillor.
