Our School Council Voice
"I was voted as a school councillor because I said I would help and make people feel that they are not alone."
"I was voted as a school councillor because I made a good speech and persuaded people to vote for me."
"I was voted as a school councillor because I wanted to represent the school."
"I was voted as a school councillor because people can talk to me if they want to."
"I wanted to be a school councillor so that I could show people that I am a role model and help the environment, so we can change the school and have healthy choices."
"I wanted to be a school councillor because I wanted to help change the school and make it better for people who are here now and new people. I want everyone to have a good time, have good equipment and be healthy."
As school councillors we want to:

Help children to make good choices
Spend time with the school council to ensure school is as good as it can be
Why should we have a school council?

To be there when you need them, if you need help or someone to talk to as the voice of the child
To be the voice of their class, especially for the people who are shy.
To improve the school and get different activities
To develop new and existing ideas
