This week has been Democracy week at Great Binfields Primary School.
Our class School Councillors have been elected and they will of course attend the weekly meetings. We were very impressed by some of their speeches. We could see that most of the children who stood for the position had prepared carefully. The successful candidates will receive some training before taking up their posts by previous school councillors.
Today is our school elections for Chair and Vice Chair of our School Council. The children are in years 5 and 6. They have prepared their election campaigns so well which included creating banners and posters to go around school. Today they each spoke to the whole school in assembly. They spoke so confidently and answered the questions posed very well. They also showed great resilience as we had a technical hitch and this did not phase them at all!
Thank you to everyone who stood for our elections. It shows that you really care and want to help make our school an even better one. We would also like to thank one of our governors, our Vice Chair, Mr Mike Nicholls who helps us run the elections. He also talked to the children late last week about what qualities a good school councillors has and will develop throughout the year.
We look forward to finding out the results!
