School Council worked hard hosting class councils, writing letters and inviting members of staff to meetings to push for both jam sandwiches to be an option for grab-a-bags and squash drinks to be available at lunch times. Unfortunately, even with such persuasive and convincing arguments these notions didn't get passed. It was a good learning experience - not only to learn about what is means to be a healthy school but also to realise that not all of their ideas will happen.
Monthly water bottle counts were a regular responsibility of school council. The children had the responsibility of ensuring that their class had water bottles to ensure that they were keeping hydrated throughout each school day.
School Council also dedicated a lot of time towards suggesting changes to the behaviour system used in school. Currently traffic lights are used and the children discussed new behaviour system displaying children for positive behaviour, not just negative. After many class councils discussing ideas, a final idea was submitted to Miss Smith, which will hopefully get implemented this new school year!
