We have an active school council at Heather Avenue which ensures all childrens' views are valued and listened to.
They meet regularly to discuss items brought from individual weekly class councils and have made decisions for improving key areas within school.
They act as ambassadors for the school when we have visitors, with the oldest children showing all prospective guardians around our school.
Having both class and school councils enable all children to experience the true meaning of being an active citizen within school, local and global communities.
The school council raise funds to buy things around the school such as for the playground. Children look at what we already have and decide on those items which they would like, in order to make their playtimes even more exciting.
Some of the activities completed by the School Council include:
The school council is facilitated by Ms Coleman.
