Weston Green School Elect Their First School Councillors
Elections for Weston Green School's first school councillors took place in Key Stage 2 just before the Easter break. Weston Green has been phasing in its Key Stage 2 education provision, and welcomed its first pupils into Year 5 in September.
Pupils who wanted to be considered for the role of councillor had to prepare a short election speech which they gave to the class. They then answered questions from their classmates.
The votes were counted and finally, amid much tension and excitement, the results were announced:
5H is represented by Xannie and Oliver, 4D is represented by Jude and Caitlin, 3N is represented by Thomas and Jorja
At the final assembly of the term, Mrs Harvey, Headteacher, proudly presented the new councillors with their badges. The first school council meeting was held shortly after and the council have been busy discussing what they would like to achieve during their term of office. KS2 have held another ballot to choose between a shortlist of suggestions for improving the school and getting involved in the local community.
In September 2013, the current Year 5 pupils will move into the school's first Year 6 class.
