School Council

School Council 2022-2023
 
Earlier this year, children from each class were given the opportunity to give a two minute talk about why they should be elected to represent their class at School Council. Each class then voted for two representatives to attend regular School Council meetings and be their class voice. Winners were announced by Mr Smithers during a Friday assembly.

The School Council representatives will take ideas and suggestions from their class to discuss at School Council meetings, which will be facilitated by Mrs Johnson. 

School Council representatives from Years 5 and 6 had the opportunity to apply for this years Chair, Secretary and Treasurer roles. Those who wished to apply gave a short speech to the School Council and a secret ballot was held. 
 
The winners were announced by Mr Smithers.

Did you know it takes 80 years for a crisp packet to decompose? Did you know that 150 of them can be ironed together and turned into a survival blanket for a homeless person and will help to keep their sleeping bag dry and insulated?
The iron man are collecting crisp packets with the support from Age UK Plymouth who will be making these blankets.
 
Last year Elburton School Council collected and counted 1460 crisp packets. That is 10 survival blankets for the winter.
