Pixmore School Council & Eco Council
At Pixmore, some of the roles that children have the opportunity of undertaking are the School Council and the Eco Council. Find out what each of the councils' roles are and what they are planning for this year.
The School Council is run by Mrs Willans.
Children vote for their class representatives and we meet every 2-3 weeks to discuss how we can help to improve the school.
One of the most important first decisions the new School Council make is choosing the Golden Ticket prizes for the whole school.
At the end of the year, the School Council presents to the Governors. We get the chance to tell the Governors about all of the things that we have had an impact on over the year.
The Eco Council is run by Mrs Inman.
Our priorities are to help the school be more environmentally friendly.
We have roles in our classes such as:
- Switching off the lights when we leave for assembly or PE - this helps us save electricity.
- Turn off taps when they are not being used - this helps the school to save water.
- Remind our classes to recycle the white paper we use. We collect the recycling paper in our blue recycling boxes and then help Mr Anderson to empty them.
This year we want to create an Eco Explorer Award. We will be working with our classes and Mrs Inman to create three levels of award and we hope that all children at Pixmore will have achieved one of our Eco Explorer Awards by the end of this year!
