Our School Council is elected in early September. We encourage children to present their manifesto to their class before a secret ballot is taken; each class has two representatives, usually a boy and a girl.
The School Council has the responsibility to represent the voice of the children here at Trinity. Representatives are given time each week to take ideas and concerns from their classes which they bring to the meeting on a Thursday lunchtime to discuss.
Meetings are lively and promote healthy debating skills and facilitate democracy by voting.
The School Council has key roles and responsibilities,
Raising money for charities (Children in Need, Save the Children, Royal British Legion)
To improve and enhance the school premises
To monitor and feedback on the Collective Worship
To lead Collective Worship
To introduce and lead new ideas and initiatives across the school
To welcome new people to our school community
To act as supportive role models who demonstrate our Christian Values to all
To demonstrate exemplary behaviour
Children hold a term of office for one year; during this time we invest in teaching various skills which they will learn and acquire as part of their role, such as creating a petition, counting votes, presenting an argument and writing formal letters. A trip to London to visit The Houses of Parliament to discover how the government operates is a great highlight of the year for our School Council!
