School Council Elections

Friday saw our school council hopefuls take to the podium as they drummed up support with their creative manifestoes. We were bowled over with campaign films, puppet shows and slogan adorned cookies and buns. Equally it was brilliant to see those children who didn’t want to run in the election help their friends out as they took  on roles in the films and offered help and advice throughout the campaign process. The children worked on their campaigns purely in their own time showing their personal commitment to the election. Well done all involved! Our new School Councillors for 6P 2017-2018 are Natalie and Matthew . Vice roles have been given to Ruby and Jayden.
