Each year, we elect our School Council members (ranging from Year 3-6).
These children are responsible for:
-Developing community links (working in and communicating)
-Working with their classes to discuss developments (developing the outdoor activity choices)
-Feeding back relevant information after School Council meetings to the rest of the school
-Help lead whole school worships (e.g.raising awareness of helping refugees: EMTRAS)
-Attend visits to the town hall for various events (Starryland Elections, Super Safety Bullying events)
Being a member of the School Council allows the children to:
-Develop their confidence and personal skills
-Play an active role as a citizen within school and the local community
-Be involved in decision making and problem solving that will have direct impacts on both the school and the community
-To work with a range of adults
-To understand what democracy means and working together as a team.
The school council members for this academic year are:
-Jay J (Y3M)
This year, the children will continue to build links with the local community and will regularly visit: Hebburn Helps and Needham Court care home. As well as venturing out into the community, the children will attend regular meetings to discuss how we can continue to improve life at school! We have also set up 'Welcome packs' for EMTRAS and held a worship to raise awareness of refugees, travellers, those who are of ethnic minorities and have asylum backgrounds and how we can support them, here at Jarrow Cross!
