Meet Our School Council Members 2019-2020

Meet Our School Council Members 2019-2020

Hello everyone!  We are your new School Councillors for 2019-2020.  Thank you for your votes!   We are all committed Ambassadors of Mindfulness and are looking forward to helping you to make our great school even greater!  We are all ready to collect your suggestions on how to improve various aspects of school life and will do all we can to implement them!  We will also be running ‘Friend Fridays’ from the Y3 classroom on Friday lunchtimes to help you solve any problems or worries you might have.  We will keep you posted on our display in school – it is at the door where Y2-Y6 enter in the morning…

“We have a WORRY BOX for you to place any worries that you might have.  You will find this in the library.  Lift the monster’s mouth and it will eat your worry – we are always here to listen to you and to help you!”

“If you have a suggestion, then put it in our SUGGESTION BOX in the LIBRARY and we will discuss how to help at our next School Council meeting.  I’ll listen to anyone, even if you want to tell me something random, like llamas and sloths jumping over the moon!”

“I want to help people be the best they can be in school!”

“I want to be the best friend I can and help everyone touch a rainbow!”

“I want to make sure more children enjoy our school meals, rather than just bringing packed lunch every day, by finding out what people might want to add to the menu.”

“I will do anything it takes to solve any problem in this school!”

“I am looking forward to all the meetings we will have.  I am a good listener.”

“I will do my very best as a councillor and am looking forward to all the jobs we will do for this school, like decorating display work.”

“I am looking forward to trying to help people.  We will have lunchtime sessions in Mrs. Whitelaw’s class to listen to any problems you might have.”

“I want music in the lunch hall for dinner and in the classes to spread happiness.”

“I want to help people bring fun equipment back into the playground.”

“I would like to get ‘Fruit To Suit’ back!”

“I want to make the school a better place so no one gets hurt and everyone has a good time!”
