School Council News
One of the extra-curricular activities at Tubbenden Primary School is the School Council. This is made up of one representative per school, from Years two to six. Children in Year one join from the summer term. We meet every other week during Wednesday lunchtime, where the children discuss any issues that have been raised by their peers, such as a need for certain equipment on the playground or new ideas for lunches. The School Council meets to debate these issues, prioritise them, and discuss how they can make a positive change in the school.
They also decide (vote) on a school charity to support for the year. Alongside this, the school council organises some charity events throughout the year, and actively encourages others to do so too. To keep the school up to date with their progression, the representatives hold an assembly once a term to discuss any current and future plans for events.
This is a great opportunity for the children to practise their communication skills and include the children in making the school an even better place.
