We held school council elections on 12th October
Anyone who wanted to stand as a school councillor had to write a promise and then read it to their class. Their promise had to be something that they would do for their class if they were elected.
Everyone in KS2 got to vote. They had to pick one boy and one girl to represent their class.
The retiring year 6 school councillors ran the election.
Last year the school council worked really hard to improve the situation outside school in the mornings with cars parking dangerously.
The school councillors stood behind the fence by the main gate and took photos of cars that were parked on the yellow lines and took number plate details of cars which were dangerously parked.
They then sent out letters to those people and asked them politely to consider the safety of the children in our school and to park around the corner so as not to cause an obstruction outside our school.
The work of the school council was recognised nationally and they received an award for their work to improve things for the children of Elfrida.
Well done the school council -and beware those parents who park dangerously!
