We are very excited about our new academic year and a new team of student councillors to work together to make Priory Rise an even better school for everyone who comes here!
We are here to be representatives of the student voice. We are the link between the children and the adults in school. We link with the senior leadership team and make sure that the views of the children at Priory Rise are known.
What is Student Council at Priory Rise?
We are made up of 2 children from each of the classes in KS2. We have been elected by our classes as good role models.
Each class had nominations and we all explained to our classes why we thought we would be good candidates for this important role in school. Each class had a ballot and those with the most votes were elected on to the School Council.
What do we do?
We meet every week for a meeting and in those meetings we:
- Set ourselves targets and decide on key aspects of school life that we want to develop.
- Read questions and suggestions that have been posted in our class boxes and discuss them.
- We learn skills of how to debate and express opinions clearly.
- We learn to respect opinions that may differ to our own
- We learn about majority voting and hold a vote each time we decide upon an action
- We take minutes from our meetings in a class book and talk to our classes about these items in a designated time each week.
As a Student Council, we have been very concerned about the fires in Australia and the impact they are having on both people and the wildlife. We feel that we as a school could do something to show our support and have been inspired by a lady who is making Kangaroo pouches for the orphaned kangaroos!
As you may know, Sunday 26th January 2020 is the official Australia Day. We would like to have a Priory Rise Australia Day on Monday 27th January 2020.
On this day we would like for everyone to wear the colours green or yellow (the national colours) and we would be grateful if you could please donate £1. The money raised will then go to charities supporting people and animals in Australia at this difficult time.
We know how caring our school is and know that you will all want to help.
Thank you all for your support,
Priory Rise Student Council
