Springfield Junior’s School Council consists of 1 student from each class throughout the school. These children are voted into the council by their class members and have various roles and responsibilities. This year’s council members have been incredibly busy! Read on to hear (in their own words) what they’ve been up to and what it takes to be a school council member!
So far this year the school council have been meeting in order to get to know each other and start making decisions on what we hope to achieve through the upcoming year. We have also been discussing what to do with the money that was raised from last year’s School Council Raffle. We have decided to allocate some money to each year group for a ‘playground box’ which will be filled with loads of games, sporting equipment and fun activities for the playground. We’re hoping to get these ordered and delivered to each year group very soon. We’ll make sure to keep you updated with pictures of what we have ordered when it all arrives!
