Vicarage School Council 2015-2016
At the beginning of the academic year, every Key stage 2 class was asked to elect their School Council representative/s. Children who wished to stand for election had to write their own manifestos; with reasons why they should be voted.
These were then shared in class before everyone got the opportunity to vote for one child in Years 3 and 4 and 2 children in Year 5 and 6.
Mrs Hussain then collected all the ballot paper up and announced the school councillors in assembly.

Houses of Parliament
The academic year started with a visit to The Houses of Parliament where our School Councillors were given the opportunity to watch a live debate in the House of Commons. They also saw some Lords and Baronesses in the House of Lords. Following on from a tour of the Houses of Parliament, we took part in a workshop on ‘YOUR VOICE’. We learnt about the different levels of Government.
Our local MP Stephen Timms will be coming to Vicarage on 27th November to meet with the school Council as he was unable to meet them in Westminster.
The school council are involved in various fund raising projects over the year including selling poppies for The Royal British Legion, cake sales, dressing up for children in need, year group enterprise weeks to raise money for local charities…..photos will be uploaded after each event.
