Our school councillors act as representatives for each of the classes within our school. They give our pupils a voice by taking part in key decisions.
Our School Councillors meet each seasonal term to discuss a variety of aspects of school life and spend an afternoon working together on projects they feel are important to them and the school community as a whole.
Our new school councillors have met this term to introduce themselves and have spent time getting to know each other. Our Year 6 councillors are now very experienced at their job so were able to tell the younger children what responsibilities they should expect.
The School Council team updated our child-friendly 'School Improvement Plan', which we plan to share with the whole school in an assembly next week.
Last September, members of Ospringe School Council visited Canterbury Cathedral and attended a 'Friends Service' along with other local schools. Throughout the day, they observed an organ demonstration, planted bulbs and wrote prayers. See photos below.
Last year, the school councillors met to create a list of questions that they wanted to ask our school governors. They then asked these questions during a whole-school assembly so that the rest of their peers could learn more about governors and their role within our school. Our Key Stage 2 representatives then met to write a 'Child-friendly' overview about our governing body, to be added to our school website. http://www.ospringe.kent.sch.uk/governors.asp
