Pupil voice as part of the School Council is very important to The Observatory School. The School Council Team makes a positive difference to the school, meeting every other Friday.
Representing the pupil voice they work together as a team to discuss ideas and issues, things they want to change in school, things that they would like to improve or tell the school about the things they like about school.
Some of the things the school council discuss and have helped to change in school include:
- Ideas for school activities
- Improving the school environment
- Planning and organising events, such as the Jubilee celebrations
- Fund raising and helping charities
- Changes and adaptions to school uniform
Pupils are always extremely thoughtful in their feedback and comments, giving positive feedback about things they like in school as well as suggestions for change and improvements. School Council and are equally enthusiastic in sharing of ideas to create new opportunities and experiences for others.
This week we welcomed our new elected members. Mrs McGlynn chaired the meeting and gave an introduction to what it means to be on the school council. All the new members were very well behaved and took their roles very seriously.
Their task this week is to gather ideas from their class on afterschool enrichment activities. You can view our minutes on the School Council page of the website.
