The school council is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve our school. They will meet regularly to discuss and sort out problems which may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
What makes a good one?
A good school council is one that represents the views of all students, gets things done and ensures that there is good communication between the elected representatives and their class.
On Tuesday 23rd January, the new Crampton debating club held their first meeting. We discussed some ground rules, the general structure of debating and brainstormed some possible topics. Next week our topic for discussion will be:
