Student Council Forum

I have the honour of organising the Student Council Forum for Primary Schools across Three Rivers. On Thursday we were invited by elected District Council members Alex Michaels (Liberal Democrat) and Reena Ranger (Conservative) to hold our meeting in the Council Meeting Room. All but one of our local school councils were represented and over 30 children and adults had a brilliant democratic experience: Alex had arranged for three managers to come and discuss their specific roles and try to convince the Forum to do something in support of their area: Road Safety, The Elderly or Playgrounds.

The children experienced a real life democratic debate, questioned Alex and Reena about how democracy works and then voted for a project.

And now…the Children’s Responsibility is to bring the presentations back to their own school, carry out a vote with their council and decide what project we will carry out in Maple Cross. So, thank you to our Chair and Secretary Connie and Amelie for representing the school at the event. Watch this space to find out what Maple Cross will aspire to achieve…

  1. Yr6,
    You are doing so well with student council and I am so glad I’m hearing school council is coming along brilliantly and I’m sure you will come up with great ideas!
    Well done to Connie an Amelie and the rest of the class for being incredible representatives of your school!

    1. When Connie and Amilie came back from the Student Council Forum, we were asked to choose a topic for our School, we all voted to focus on Elderly people around the area of Maple Cross. We have come up with so many ideas, and cannot wait for them to happen.
