At Shavington, we are very keen to make sure our children have a voice. One way in which we achieve this is through children taking part in the School Council.
The School Council is a group of thirteen children made up of two representatives from each year group from Year 1 to Year 6. All classes hold elections at the start of the year to choose their school council reps. Children have the opportunity to put themselves forward to represent their class giving reasons why they think they would be good at the job.
Our Deputy Headteacher (Mrs Gawn) works with the School Council. The group meet every three weeks and discuss issues related to all aspects of school and community life. The issues raised in the past have been varied and all issues are taken seriously and addressed where ever possible. School council have been involved in designing the school lunch system, trying to make the toilets smell sweeter, rotas for football and den building, creating and implementing suggestion boxes and organising a school talent contest. This year we will also be focusing on how we can develop our school grounds.
As well as supporting our school community the school council also recognises the importance of supporting charities. This year the school council have decided to fundraise for St Luke's Hospice. They will organise a fundraising event to raise money.
