At Merton Abbey, we have a successful and active school council.
Aims and Objectives
The school council is made up of children in Years 5 and 6 (twelve children in total). Each councillor represents a class in the school and their role is to collect, disseminate and share ideas with their particular class. Every other week they meet together with Mrs Ogunnobi-Sime to share and discuss the contributions from their class. As a school we are looking to develop their role in the future so they have a more consultative role throughout the school e.g. introduction of food and uniform policies.
In January, the school council representatives successfully held a Family Film evening for the school community. There was an overwhelming response to the event and tickets sold out within the first week! Over 130 people came and enjoyed a fantastic film along with their popcorn and drink! In fact, it was so successful that another one will be organised very soon!
