School Council Elections
School Council elections took place on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th September 2016. The new Council for the year was introduced at Praise Assembly on 16th September. Here they are below. Find out all about them and what School Council does.
We are Dalestorth School Council. We are made up of a boy and a girl from each year group in KS2 who have been elected by our class to represent everyone else. There are also 2 additional members of the council who have been invited on by the Head Teacher. That makes 12 of us in total. It is our job to give the pupils a voice. We seek the views of the pupils in school and put forward their suggestions. We enjoy coming up with ideas to make the school a better place. We organise events and activities and work hard at fundraising. We are also responsible for the weekly Praise Assembly and keep our eyes and ears open to reward and mention good behaviour and hard work. We will keep you up to date with the work we are doing.
