The School Council plays a really important role in the running of Glyncoed Primary School. The council has the opportunity to raise issues that are concerning pupils in the school and also helps to make important decisions about school life.
If you have any issues you would like the School Council Committee to discuss please see your class representative who will be happy to bring them up at the next meeting.
End of Term Update.
Our school councillors have now introduced themselves to the teachers who are leading action groups throughout the school.
Some of the School Council have joined the meetings of these groups so that they can report back to us in the New Year.
School Council SNAG (school nutrition action group) members have begun to help sell the fruit at break times from the trolley.
One of our first tasks in the New Year is to explore and buy some high visibility jackets, which will be worn at playtimes. The School Council members will then be instantly recognisable in the playground and on the school field. We will also decide whether school council caps will be a good idea or not.
Next term will be a busy time and our School Council will be even more prominent around the school.
Well done everybody.
School Council Update.
First meeting of the brand new school council (2015-2016) was on Wednesday October 13th.
We were also lucky enough to have a visit by our designated school governor Mr. Gerry Thomas on the same day.
What a busy first meeting!!
We welcomed our new members and some of the children discussed why they had wanted to be school councillors. They are all very committed to the well-being of the school and are bubbling with enthusiasm about their own ideas.
This is what we achieved at our first meeting:
Children grouped themselves into their own areas of interest e.g. SNAG (school nutrition action group), STAG (school toilet action group), SCAG (school Cymru action group), SWAG (school well-being action group), ECO.
Children are in the process of designing their action group logos for our display board. Some groups have designed their own badges too.
Another member took a group photo of the whole school council including Mrs. Patching and Mr. Thomas. Group photos and individual photos were also taken for our display board to raise the profile of our members throughout the school.
Children will complete our display board so that the whole school can read what we have agreed in school council meetings.
Children in each group will be linked up with staff who lead these areas.
Children will have decided:
What prizes or rewards the children would like to see for weekly, half termly, termly and annual attendance?
Whether the children would like to keep the medals?
If not, then what would the children like instead of the medals?
