Our first School Council meeting took place on Wednesday 16th September. We discussed the charity that we would like to raise funds for this term. It is the Christie Cancer Fund. We talked about the different ways in which we could raise money for this worthy cause. We will confirm our decisions in the near future. Some of the ideas were brilliant. We were also asked by the PTFA to decide on some new games that could be incorporated into the Christmas Fair. We enjoyed thinking of some fantastic new activities that everyone will enjoy when they come to the Christmas Fair.
SCHOOL COUNCIL ELECTIONS SEPTEMBER 2015
Election fever hit Lowton Junior and Infants School as children campaigned to be elected to the School Council. Over the past week children have been producing their own manifestos to try to win the votes of their fellow pupils. The excitement culminated with a ‘General Election’ on Wednesday 9th September. The School Community room was transformed into a Polling Station, complete with an official ballot box.
Every child matters at Lowton J & I and it is important that they have a voice as to how to improve their school. The children composed their own manifestos explaining why they would make a good council member. Each class put names forward for the children who wished to be elected into the School Council. The children were taken to the polling station and received a ballot paper and went into the polling booth. Using the ballot paper, the children marked a cross next to the name of the boy and girl that they wished to represent their class in the School Council. The children understood that they were voting for ‘council’ qualities. Using an official ballot box the children posted their ballot papers and have been awaiting the results.
After all of the votes have been counted an announcement will be made on Monday the 14th September. The successful candidates will be presented with their badges and certificates by the Headteacher during a special assembly next week. The School Council enables the children to express their views and opinions and helps further enhance their involvement in the school and wider community.
