Townsend’s School Council
At school council, the two voted representatives from each year group meet to discuss current issues in the school. Today we discussed ways to improve rules in the playground and also playground equipment. During the meeting, we voice our opinions openly and then it is put forward to our Head teacher, Mrs Stonell. Mrs Stonell always listens to our ideas and encourages us to make changes to the school.
In this school, we give all children an opportunity to voice their opinions, so we treat everyone with respect, even if we don’t necessarily agree with the opinion, everyone has a right to freedom of expression.
I really enjoy being part of the School Council and look forward to speaking on behalf of my class at the next meeting.
