The School Council have been working extremely hard this year.
They have worked along side the UNICEF Ambassadors and they have formed an Eco Group together called, 'Friends of Nature'. They are currently working on ways to reduce plastic in the environment.
The first step that was taken was to have a 'Plastic Free Week' at school. The response was amazing and out of 420 children and all the adults in the school, we only had 4 disposable plastic bottles brought into school that week. We would like this to continue they are now working on designs for metal drinking bottles for the children as well as staff members.
A few of the children have been attending 'The Ivy Parliament', where they have been promoting their Eco work and sharing their ideas with other schools in the Ivy Learning Trust.
The School Council have become very responsible at lunch times. They have been monitoring the dining hall and making sure that all children are behaving sensibly, not throwing away any unwanted food and being respectful to all.
We look forward to continuing our work with the Ambassadors as well as the rest of the school and hopefully we can work together to save our planet and reduce the use of plastic in Walker School as well as at home.
School Council 2022 Values and Mission Statement
We encourage the children to have their say about school matters. This has been made possible by the formation of the School Council. The Council has been elected by the pupils themselves and has an important role to play in the development and improvement of the school for the pupils.
The School council will meet regularly to discuss any matters or issues of interest to the children within the school environment, surrounding community and things affecting the world around them. This will tie in with our UNICEF Rights Respecting School Values. The School Council will also be working closely with our Unicef ambassadors to ensure all areas of our vision statement and values are met.
As a School Council we see ourselves as the voice of all pupils in the school from Year one to Year 6. Our links with staff, parents, pupils, the governors and community enable us to participate in decisions about teaching, learning, fundraising and the success of our school.
Dear Walker Students,
If you have any issues that you would like to raise about things around school, please go to your class council representative. Alternatively, you can post your suggestion in the Suggestion Box in Mrs Adem's Class, Maple Class.
