SCHOOL & ECO COUNCIL

Welcome to our School & Eco Council Page

A huge thank you to our School and Eco Councillors for 2021 – 2022 : Isabelle C; Amy H; Georgina A; Rowan H; Lyla A; Katie H; Darcy N; Eva C; Lottie S and Jack O. With their hard work and dedication the school  maintained our Eco Schools Green Flag Status in July 2022. The award focuses on the ten Eco Schools topics – Energy, Biodiversity, Marine, Healthy Living, Global Citizenship, Waste, Transport, Water, Litter and School Grounds. We are very proud of the feedback we received with regards to our application. You can read it by clicking here Eco School Green Flag Award July 2022

The councillors were also involved in lots of decision making over the school year and their final job was to interview and appoint our School Prefects for 2022 -2023. The Year 6 children were asked to apply in writing and  the councillors along with Mrs Bamber and Mrs Hibbert (our Chair of Governors) then shortlisted and finally interviewed the candidates. The children were incredibly confident during their interviews and it was a really tough decision – ten prefects were appointed and they now carry out duties around the school and wear their badges with pride. Our new prefects are Sienna; Gracie; Erin; Ray; George; Dan; Bethany; Georgina; Ellis and Bella.

We were so excited to return to school in September and to begin to appoint some new councillors for this school year. We take nominations very seriously here at Strike Lane and being a councillor is a very responsible position. Firstly, if the children wanted to be nominated, they have to apply in writing and read their letters in front of their class mates who then vote for the most suitable candidate. We take councillors from Y2 up to Y6. Our new councillors for 2022 – 2023 are due to be announced in assembly on Monday 12th September. We are very excited to find out who will be voted in.

Once appointed School and Eco Council meetings take place fortnightly. Watch this space for new and updated information.
