School Council


Welcome to our School Council page.

Our School Council is very important as it is our responsibility to listen to the ideas of our classmates and then bring them to our regular meetings. It is also our responsibility to tell our classmates about the things we have discussed and decisions that have been made. Our council is made up of children from Year 1 to Year 6.

Here are some of the things we have been involved in.

 

Playground Markings

The markings on our playground were in need of improving so we were given a budget of £1300 to select what should be painted on to our Foundation Phase and Junior playgrounds. As a council we selected what we thought the other pupils would enjoy and kept our choices within the budget. 

 

Diversity and Respect Day

We had the fantastic opportunity to attend the Communities First Diversity and Respect Day at the Selwyn Samuel Centre on 1st December 2014. It was an event where many local groups were represented such as the police force, fire service, Carmarthenshire County Council. We certainly learnt a lot about our community.

 

Suggestion Boxes

Each of our council members were provided with a suggestion tube to be placed in their class. They each explained to their own classes that we wanted suggestions about how to improve our school. Pupils had the tubes for a few weeks for them to insert their suggestions. The council members then brought them back to our meetings and we spent time going through them. It was important that we read all of the suggestions but then made decisions about which ones were the best. We then reduced the list down to four which we then took to show Mr Morris.
