I asked the Autumn term reps for some feedback about their role and here’s what they said. We will discuss how to make sure we listen to, and act upon, their suggestions.

How would you sum up Eco Council in one word?
Eco Council visited Res today. They had a long walk across the fields to get there! They then learned about renewable technologies and had an exciting tour of the site- they saw the massive wind turbine, solar panels and a battery operated car!
This term’s Eco council reps were welcomed into their new role by the Autumn term reps who talked to them about what the role involved. It was lovely to see them working together.
Autumn term school council met with the new, Spring term school council reps today to hand over. They spoke about what their roles involve and explained how much they enjoyed taking part in whole school decisions.
The new reps were then set their first task – to run a competition to design a new ‘welcome mat’ for the entrance to school. We also discussed upcoming events which they’ll be involved in organising. They were delighted to receive their brand new school council badges!
