2 What makes a good Councillor? A good school council is one that represents the views of all children and gets things done. These are some of the things that make our school council effective:Regular meetingsGood communication between respresentatives and their classesSmaller groups (sub committees) working on specific events or issuesJobs
3 What jobs are there?Each year, every class elects 2 respresentatives, a Councillor and Deputy Councillor to be members of the school council. The council will then meet to elect officers such as:Chair (Owen)Vice-Chair (Niamh & Imogen)Secretary (Jacob & Emily)Treasurer (Stanley)
4 HistorySchool Councils have been around for about 40 years, but now with citizenship being taught, there are many more around.The School Council plays a very important role in school life. They attend regular meetings and discuss important issues which may effect the pupils, parents and staff of Bourne Abbey and the surrounding community. When necessary the Chairperson and Vice Chair often put forward a motion to the other Councillors to invite visitors to the meetings to discuss particular projects. Minutes are recorded by the elected Council Secretary.The School Councillors are supported by Mrs Pattison (Year 4 teacher) who started the Bourne Abbey School council 5 years ago
