Our school council works very hard to make sure that the pupils have a say in what happens at St. Luke's.
Early in the autumn term each child writes a manifesto to present to their class to convince them why they should be the class representative.
A polling day is held which is conducted officially with voting slips and polling booths.
A returning officer then delivers the results in a whole school assembly.
Each class has 2 representatives, one boy and one girl and these children then attend a weekly council meeting. The first official meeting decides on the officers jobs... Chairperson, secretary, treasurer and so on.
Our school council has had a huge influence on how St. Luke's is today and they have contributed towards some major developments at the school.
Be sure you let your class representative know anything you wish to discuss and ask them to tell you about what they have been doing in the meetings.
