School Council Conference 2019
On Friday 8th March 2019, our Year 5 and 6 School Councillors took part in our annual School Council Conference. Our theme this year was The Environment. We took part in lots of different workshops which taught us about the effect plastic is having in our oceans, how Maldon recycles, how we can reduce waste in the first place and how we can identify what can be recycled.
We developed our communication skills by working alongside representatives from other School Councils in the Maldon area and were also able to meet John Whittgindale MP who told us about ways in which the Government are tackling environmental issues.
We then worked together to create some workshops which we will be delivering across the school, together with a whole school assembly.
School Council Attendance at Remembrance Sunday Event
On Sunday 12th November 2017, members of the School Council attended with their parents/carers the Maldon Remembrance Event. A wreath was laid on behalf of the school staff and parents.
School Council Visit to the Houses of Parliament
On 7th November 2017, our School Councillors for years 5 and 6 went to the Houses of Parliament. They took part in a a workshop and had a tour of the building. They were allowed to watch part of the debate in both the House of Commons about Brexit and the House of Lords regarding social housing. As usual our School Councillors were exceptionally well behaved and participated well in the workshops with members of other schools.
School Council Visit to Maldon Pantry
Our new School Council undertook their first official engagement on Friday 22nd September 2017 when they took our Harvest Festival gifts to Maldon Pantry. Staff and visitors to the Pantry commented on how polite the children were and as usual they proved to be excellent ambassadors for our school.
