School Council

A warm welcome to the School Council of 2018-2019

Today we met as the new School Council. After a quick hello we got straight down to business. We have been given the task of thinking up ‘quality behaviours’. These are the behaviours that show us off at our best! They are the behaviours that help us learn, be a good member of the school and grow in our experiences of Downlands. We set about thinking of these and then allocated them to the classes including Dandelions.

Today we have voted for our chair and vice chair. The 5/6s were amazing and I can not express the quality of their ideas. They were exceptionally confident, articulate and thoughtful. I am beyond impressed with their attitudes and effort.  William – heartfelt personal experiences, more charity events, more natures events.

Freddie – shared his qualities, he has been here from Little Jimmy’s, has ideas of having more clubs voted for by school council with support from classes such as film club with popcorn, running club, den building, stone painting.

Tia – made a fantastic powerpoint sharing her qualities and her ideas. These including fundraising for KS1 goals and why these are needed. She went on to explain how everyone can benefit from sports equipment. She was confident and concise in her speech. A superb powerpoint.

The candidates were incredible. Each of the three would have made a superb Chair but there could only to one so the School Council voted. The results were that William is Chair and both Tia and Freddie are Vice-Chair. Congratulations to you all, you are just fantastic. Well done.
