At Grange Infant School we encourage our children to have an input into the goings on within school. Last years School Council put in place our Playground Pals at break times and lunchtimes, they helped out on the stalls at the Christmas fayre, they recorded a “Keep our playground tidy” film and at the end of term they completed our fabulous “Visual tour of Grange Infant School” video.
They will meet weekly on a Monday lunchtime and carry out their school council duties, which will include; Litter picking, helping in the library, keeping the lunch hall and classrooms tidy. They will also meet to discuss ways to help improve the school.
School Counsellors are nominated by their peers for being helpful, kind, caring, good listeners and great role models.
Our School Council members meet once a week to discuss any issues that they feel can be addressed by the children and make a plan on any improvements they can make. They help to keep our Library neat and tidy and take on litter picking duty when needed. They are a total asset to the school and we are very proud of our School Council members.
Our School Council Members will pick a topic of concern and will work together on an assembly to discuss the issues and what can be done about it. They held a presentation to the whole school this term raising the issue of washing your hands, keeping the hall tidy at lunchtime and playing nicely.
