The school council is a very effective way for us to ensure that our pupils' ideas about the way St Mark's is run, can be heard and acted upon.
Years 2-6 democratically elect two pupils as their representatives on the Class Council, which meets weekly.
Recent initatives that the Class Council have either led or been involved in include :
- The establishment of school monitor positions
- made changes and improvements to the school behaviour system
- Introduced greater incentives for promoting better attendance and punctuality
- Purchased equipment for playground use
In addition to this, school council representative regularly collect the views and opinions of their classmates, conduct school tours and meet with visitors to the school. They are currently involved in discussions around how we can further promote healthy eating and drinking at lunch times and have met with the school's catering manager and provided feedback on how the school menu can be improved.
In this picture our school councillors are busy going through the results of our most recent pupil survey to find out whether any trends are coming out of the feedback from their classmates
The school council designed and initiated the attendance board below to help to improve attendance and punctuality.
Our class councillors in 2016 - 2017 are:
Yr 2 : Maya Cameron
Yr 3 Sami Sara
Yr 4 : Dimitri Gracie
Yr 5 : Makeina James
Yr 6 : Lamide Josie
