The School Council at Larkhill Primary School has 18 very keen and active pupils who believe they can make a real difference to life at the school. The council members were elected by their class peers comprising of one member from each KS1 class and two members from each class in KS2. The School Council is chaired by Mr. Almond (Y3 Doves Class).
The first meeting of the year was held on 12th January 2017. We discussed whether we should have House Captains, how we should reward winning houses (with a view to hosting House Days) and how can we improve Sports Day. One of the main roles of any School Council member is to report back to their respective class and seek feedback on any proposals from the pupils in that class. Communication skills and excellent listening skills are essential qualities for any class representative.
Our next School Council meeting will take place on 7th February 2017. We will be discussing the forthcoming visit of BBC Wiltshire Radio on Tuesday 14th March 2017, as they will be interviewing the School Council on a range of topics. Exciting news indeed!
