The School Council are a group of pupils who are elected to work on very important projects across the school. They work with Ms Hughes to tackle various issues. Sometimes they work with other children, sometimes teachers and sometimes special guests and visitors!
On 17th of September we elected our new School Council. Sixteen children were elected, a girl and a boy from each of the eight Key Stage 2 classes.
Here is a list of who we elected.
Casting a vote. Democracy in action.
A boy and a girl were then selected from Year 6C to lead the Council throughout the year.
First aid training. 27th September 2018
Joy from St John’s Ambulance came to school to train all the Year 5 and 6 school councillors and some of Ms Edward’s Play Leaders in basic first aid.
Look what we had to do.
We had lots of research to do and had lots of practice with various techniques.
Remember DRS ABC. This what you have to remember order to help someone successfully.
Learning how to clear the airways Completing our research
Our favourite part was learning how to bandage a head injury.
The trained first-aiders will now work alongside Ms Graston at playtime and lunchtime , looking after those children who need help.
We completed the City Council’s on line survey. The questionnaire asked us what we liked about Liverpool and how we could help the council make our city more child friendly. We told the council that we really liked all the people who live in Liverpool, there are so many different people and they are all friendly but we also told the council that a big issue was the litter all around the streets. We told them we felt listened to as children in school and at home but we felt that very important people like the council never listened to us children.
