What is the School Council?
The school council works to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at Hamworthy Park Junior School. We look around for things that could be better and discuss what to do. Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things. Sometimes we have to talk to Mr Lumber or other teachers and sometimes we have to make phone calls to people outside of the school.
Who are the School Councillors?
Every year we run an election campaign to vote for two new representatives for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings and put the minutes up in the classroom.
The minutes are the notes that we take at the meetings; they explain what we said and what will happen next. Click here if you would like to read this weeks minutes.
We try to be very professional in the council so we use a lot of business words. Hopefully this will help.
