Bridge IPS held our second set of elections to vote in new members to our School Council for this academic year 2017-2018. During last half term, each class P4-7 prepared for our School Council Elections by discussing their ideas in class council meetings and talking to outgoing class council representatives to see what they enjoyed about being part of the school council. Pupils then had to think about what qualities would make a good ‘class rep’. For homework manifestos were worked on and in class presentations were given to fellow classmates and teachers.
Pupils eagerly awaited our Election Day on Wednesday 29th November. A great buzz of anticipation and excitement was evident in all year groups P4-7. Election campaigns were launched, posters have been made and badges given out. We are so proud of everyone who took part. Congratulations to all of the children who put themselves forward for the school council.
The new School Council representatives voted in by their class members are:
P.4D Zara, Rachel and Freddy
School Council 2017-2018
Election Day 2017
Our outgoing school council members from P.4-P.7 have throughly enjoyed their first year. Pupils brought some super ideas from their classes to meetings and have successfully secured funding form the Parents Group to enable us to buy new playground equipment. School Council members have embraced their roles with enthusiasm and have demonstrated how the power of the 'pupil' voice can indeed make changes to benefit all pupils
