At Rawmarsh Ashwood Primary School, we keep the children at the heart of everything that we do, so who better to support the key decisions in school than the children themselves! Each year, candidates prepare a manifesto, read it to the class and are elected based on their superb qualities to represent their class.
Under the watchful eye of Mrs Unwin, the staff representative on the school’s council, the children discuss, debate and suggest ways in which we can make Rawmarsh Ashwood a better place to learn, play and grow.
So far this year, the school council have:
- selected the values that we will reward in school this year
- created a wish list to improve the equipment in the school container
- proposed strategies to improve behaviour on the playground
- raised money for Children in Need by selling biscuits and drinks
and most impressively and have unanimously voted to donate all of the money raised by our Christmas performances to Post Pals. This is an incredibly worthy charity that supports sick children and their families by sending letters and cards to help them feel better. We are so proud of their selfless nature.
The school council will update you all with their excellent work throughout the year!
