Hello and Welcome to our School Council Webpage!
On here you will be able to find out who has been chosen to represent our school council, keep up to date with all the exciting changes and developments we have been discussing in our meeting, and find out how you can support forthcoming fundraising events.
What is a School Council?
A School Council is a group of pupils who represent the views of all pupils in our school, to make our school an even better place to grow, learn and play.
‘Every child has a Voice’
Each year every pupil has the opportunity to become their class councillor. Each pupil is given one vote; the child with the most votes is elected as their class councillor.
A huge congratulations to this year’s School Councillors:
Chairperson – 6C – Precious Brown
Vice Chairperson – 5R Enaya Ahmad
Secretary – 5A – Mia Davies
Treasurer – 4G – Scarlett Goss
3G – Freya Angel 6G – Luke Donaldson 3F – Matthew Dennick 2RG – Max Edwards 1W – Emilie Oliver RF – Faith Jones RP – Shelby Mills
The school council is over-seen and supported by Mrs Roberts (Year 2 Class Teacher) but led by the children themselves.
What do we do?
Our School Council meets with Mrs Roberts to discuss forthcoming events, problems and ideas and put forward views of children in their class. We then work together to develop ideas and plan events. After each meeting pupils report back any developments to their class.
On Friday November 10th members of the School Council are lucky enough to be visiting the Council Chambers in Prestatyn. We will be meeting the Mayor and have the opportunity to have a tour of the Chambers and to ask questions. The School Council hope to gain an understanding of how decisions are made within the council.
Children in Need 2017
Ysgol Penmorfa are annual supporters of the Children in Need campaign and this year is no exception. The school council have been busy thinking of the best way to raise money for this worthwhile cause and they have come up with some fantastic ideas.
For this year’s Children in Need the School Council would like every pupil to come to school on Friday, November 17th dressed in Pudsey bear colours of yellow, red, white, blue, green or of course SPOTS. We would also like pupils to draw an A4 picture of Pudsey bear doing a fun activity and bring it to school on Children in Need day. A winner from each year group will be chosen and a small prize can be chosen of either a kinder egg or a selection of colouring sheets and a packet of crayons. We would appreciate if you can bring a donation to school on the day.
